From the recording Linwood Cafe
Something you can See
He worked hard from sun up to sunset
Dad repainted our old farmhouse white
Nailed up new shutters and new shingles fixed it up for Momma real nice.
Chorus- I never saw him raise his voice in anger
never saw him say an unkind word to her
She's his everything,
I love you wasn't something that he said,
It was something you could see.
She picked wild flowers by the creek bank
Mom arranged them in a coffee can
At night she lit scented candles
glad to sit and hold Daddies hand.
Chorus- I never saw her raise her voice in anger
Never saw her say and unkind word to him.
He's her everything
I love you wasn't something she just said
it was something you could see.
Girl you're like a flower you need water and sunshine
I can be the rain that falls in springtime.
I hope I never raise your voice in anger
Hope I never say and unkind word to you
You're my everything
I love you isn't something I just say
it is something you can see.
