BIG BROTHER (Jack Clement / Allen Reynolds / Dickey Lee) Tex Ritter (with the King Sisters) - 1964 Dickey Lee - 1965 Johnny Paycheck - 1967 Tompall & The Glaser Bros. - 1967 She was seven and I was just ten When she moved next door to the house we lived in She followed me around and got in my hair Wherever I looked she'd be there An awkward little girl with big brown eyes She'd ask me over for tea and mud pies A freckled faced angel always in my way But I couldn't refuse when she'd say (Big brother, take me with you) (Wherever you're goin' I want to go to) (You're so silly, the things that you do) (But big brother how I love you) As we grew older I'd take her around We'd go to the fair when it came to town The side shows and candy would keep us all day And if we were late she would say (Mother, there's no need to worry and fuss) (My big brother can take care of us) (He's like one of our own family) (Big brother takes care of me) So the years flew by, then one night in the spring All of a sudden she was eighteen No longer the little girl I'd known all my life And I wanted to make her my wife But a few days later, her heart all aglow In order that I'd be the first one to know She brought him over and in her sweet way Told me of her wedding day Big brother I've been so long But now big brother will have to be strong So I'll turn and hide these tears in my eyes I can't let her see big brother cry (Transcribed by Mel Priddle - September 2011)
