DAYS OF SAND AND SHOVELS (Bud Reneau / Doyle Marsh) Roy Clark - 1969 Waylon Jennings - 1969 Bobby Lewis - 1969 Jim Ed Brown - 1970 Anthony A. Jones - 1970 Faron Young - 1974 Charley Pride - 1975 When I noticed her the first time I was outside running barefoot in the rain She lived in the house next door Her nose was pressed against the window pane When I looked at her, she smiled And showed a place where two teeth used to be And I heard her ask her mom If she could come outside and play with me Soon the days of sand and shovels Gave way to the mysteries of life Then I noticed she was changing And I looked at her through different eyes We became as one and knew a love Without beginning or an end And every day I lived with her Was like a new day dawning once again And I've loved her since Ev'ry doll was Shirley Temple Soda pop was still a nickel Jam was on her fingertips Milk was circled on her lips After many years our love grew silent And at night I heard her cry And when she left me in the Fall I knew it would be our last goodbye I was man enough to give her Ev'rything she needed for a while In searching for a perfect love I found that I could not give her a child Now she lives a quiet life And is a mother of a little girl And ev'ry time I pass her house My thoughts go back into another world Because I see her little girl Her nose is pressed against the window pane She thinks I'm a lonely man Who wants to come inside out of the rain And I've loved her since Ev'ry doll was Shirley Temple Soda pop was still a nickel Jam was on...........FADE (Transcribed by Mel Priddle - March 2010)
