(YOU'VE BEEN QUITE A DOLL) RAGGEDY ANN (Lane) "Little" Jimmy Dickens - 1970 You sure have been quite a doll, Raggedy Ann Yes, quite a doll But I didn't really know you until I started making these trips up here to talk to you. And now I'm beginning to see more and more why my baby loved you so much Why, Raggedy Ann, sometimes I'd almost swear that you're just about as much alive as I am When I hug you up close to me, I feel every ounce of the warm glow of love that she must've felt And you know what, Raggedy Ann I'd give anything I owned in this world If I knew just half of the memories that have passed through those little black button eyes of yours Hid themselves in their tear stained stuff Well I bet your just busting out with little old childhood secrets that could really set a lonely man's heart aglow Sometimes I still have to laugh the way you had to sample all of her food And see all of her little new dresses And answer a thousand questions It's really a small wonder that you're all in one piece The way she used to drag you around by one leg everywhere she went But you didn't seem to mind, 'cause you always had that big ole smile on your face And You know something, Raggedy Ann I bet that smile has dryed more tears and cured more little hurts then I could ever hope to kiss away And I'll tell you something else That big smile has given me strength to face some pretty trying times myself And I want to thank you again, Raggedy Ann For helping me raise her after her Momma died Somehow you just stepped right into her Momma shoes And just that much further into our hearts And that year of the rains, remember One night the fever took my baby You just laid right there beside her While I did everything I could, right up to the end And since then its just been me and you, Raggedy Ann Just me and you. But you know the years haven't seemed to bother you too much Course, you're a little faded here and there from the wind and rain But that heartwarming charm and that spark of love seems stronger now then it ever did And look at me, why I barely made it up the hill today Look Raggedy Ann, I can't even brush the dirt from my knees So don't look for me tomorrow, I won't make it I'd like to take you with me, Raggedy Ann But I know you'll be happier right here Watching over my baby and keeping her warm Well, I've got to leave you now, I gotta go Aand about the only thing that comes to my mind to say to you is God Bless You And you sure have been quite a doll, Raggedy Ann Yes sir, quite a doll (Contributed by Cooks - May 2004)
