Lyrics I REMEMBER THEM
SO CLEARLY,
MOM AND DAD LOVED THEM
SO DEARLY,
OLD BRUSH ARBORS
BY THE SIDE
OF THE ROAD,
WHERE I LEARNED
ABOUT SALVATION
FROM THE BOOK
OF REVELATIONS
IN AN ARBOR
BY THE SIDE
OF THE ROAD.
OLD BRUSH ARBORS
BY THE SIDE
OF THE ROAD,
WHERE A SINNER
COULD LAY DOWN
HIS HEAVY LOAD,
IT WAS IN
THOSE OLD BRUSH ARBORS
TROUBLED SOULS
FOUND PEACEFUL HARBORS,
BRUSH ARBORS
BY THE SIDE
OF THE ROAD.
MANY TIMES
I HAVE DEPARTED
FROM THE WAY OF LIFE
I STARTED
IN AN ARBOR
BY THE SIDE
OF THE ROAD,
BUT EACH TIME
THE DEVIL'S CAUGHT ME
I REMEMBERED
WHAT THEY TAUGHT ME
IN BRUSH ARBORS
BY THE SIDE
OF THE ROAD.
OLD BRUSH ARBORS
BY THE SIDE
OF THE ROAD,
WHERE THE MIGHTY LIGHT
OF GOD'S GREAT MERCY
FLOWED,
THERE WAS PRAYIN',
SHOUTIN',
SINGIN',
TILL THE COUNTRY SIDE
WAS RINGIN'
BRUSH ARBORS
BY THE SIDE
OF THE ROAD,
OLD BRUSH ARBORS
BY THE SIDE
OF THE ROAD.

Lyrics verse 1:
THE SEASONS COME,
THE SEASONS GO,
WE GET A LITTLE SUNSHINE,
RAIN AND SNOW
JUST THE WAY
IT WAS PLANNED TO BE
BUT THERE'S NO SEASON
IN MY HEART
WHILE YOU PLAY
THE LEADING PART,
'CAUSE THE FLOWERS BLOOM
ETERNALLY.

Chorus:
YOUR LEAVING
WILL BRING AUTUMN SORROW
AND MY TEARS
LIKE WITHERED LEAVES WILL FALL
BUT SPRING
COULD BRING
SOME GLAD TOMORROW,
AND, DARLIN',
WE COULD BE HAPPY AFTER ALL.

verse 2:
AS IT IS IN NATURE'S PLAN,
NO SEASON GETS THE UPPER HAND,
OH, HOW I TRY
TO KEEP THIS FACT IN MIND
THE TREES ARE BARE,
THE COLD WINDS BLOW,
AND BY EXPERIENCE
WE SHOULD KNOW
THAT WINTER COMES,
BUT SPRING IS CLOSE BEHIND.

Chorus:
YOUR LEAVING
WILL BRING AUTUMN SORROW
AND MY TEARS
LIKE WITHERED LEAVES WILL FALL
BUT SPRING
COULD BRING
SOME GLAD TOMORROW,
AND, DARLIN',
WE COULD BE HAPPY AFTER ALL.

Lyrics YOU KEEP SAYING
YOU LOVE HIM,
I BELIEVE
THAT IT'S TRUE,
AND IT JUST DOESN'T MATTER
HOW MUCH I LOVE YOU.
BUT IN TIME
YOU'LL UNDERSTAND, DEAR,
WHEN YOU SHED A TEAR,
THEN YOU'LL KNOW
YOU WERE LIVING
IN YOUR TENDER YEARS.
IN YOUR EYES
THERE'S A LOVELIGHT
THAT SHINES FOR HIM,
BUT HOW LONG
WILL IT STAY THERE?
WILL THAT LOVELIGHT
GROW DIM?
YOU CAN JUST SEE
THE HAPPINESS,
YOU CAN'T SEE THE TEARS,
YES, IT'S TRUE
YOU'VE BEEN LIVING
IN YOUR TENDER YEARS.

SO IF I CAN'T BE
YOUR FIRST LOVE,
I'LL WAIT
AND BE YOUR LAST.
I'LL BE SOMEWHERE
IN YOUR FUTURE
TO HELP YOU
FORGET THE PAST.
THEN YOU'LL KNOW
THAT I LOVE YOU
WITH A LOVE
THAT'S SINCERE,
'CAUSE I'LL WAIT
'TIL YOU'RE THROUGH LIVING
IN YOUR TENDER YEARS.

YES,
YOU'LL KNOW
THAT I LOVE YOU
WITH A LOVE
THAT'S SINCERE,
YES, I'LL WAIT
'TIL YOU'RE THROUGH LIVING
IN YOUR TENDER YEARS.

Lyrics THAT'S ALL IT TOOK,
THE MENTION
OF YOUR NAME,
AND ALL MY LOVE
FOR YOU
BURST INTO FLAME.
I'VE TRIED SO HARD
TO LET YOU GO,
BY THE LOOK,
HOW I STILL TREMBLE
AT YOUR NAME,
THAT'S ALL IT TOOK.
THAT'S ALL IT TOOK
TO MAKE ME KNOW
THAT I STILL CARE,
IT SEEMS MY HEART
JUST CAN'T GIVE UP
THE DREAMS
WE USED TO SHARE.
I TELL MY FRIENDS
I'M HAPPY
BUT THEY READ ME
LIKE A BOOK,
AND WHEN TODAY
I HEARD THEM SAY
YOUR NAME,
THAT'S ALL IT TOOK.
THAT'S ALL IT TOOK
TO MAKE ME YEARN
FOR YOUR EMBRACE.
I GUESS
I MIGHT AS WELL
ADMIT
NO ONE
CAN TAKE YOUR PLACE.
I TELL MY FRIENDS
I'M HAPPY
BUT THEY READ ME
LIKE A BOOK,
FOR WHEN TODAY
I HEARD THEM SAY
YOUR NAME,
THAT'S ALL IT TOOK;
FOR WHEN TODAY
I HEARD THEM SAY
YOUR NAME,
THAT'S ALL IT TOOK.

Lyrics WELL,
I GOT A CROW
I WANT TO PICK
WITH YOU,
JUST LIKE
THE LAST TIME
THE FEATHERS FLEW
YOU'RE RUNNING WILD
A-KICKING UP
YOUR HEELS,
A-LEAVING ME HOME
WITH A HANDFUL
OF BILLS.
I CAN'T LIVE
WITHOUT YOU
AND YOU KNOW
T'S TRUE,
BUT THERE'S NO LIVING
WITH YOU,
SO WHAT'LL I DO?
I'M GOIN'
HONKY TONKING,
GETTING TIGHT
AS I CAN,
AND MAYBE BY THEN
YOU'LL APPRECIATE
A GOOD MAN.

TELL ME WHY,
BABY, WHY BABY,
WHY, BABY, WHY
YOU MAKE ME CRY,
BABY,
CRY, BABY,
CRY, BABY CRY?
I CAN'T LIVE
WITHOUT YOU
TILL THE DAY
THAT I DIE,
BUT TELL ME WHY,
BABY, WHY,
BABY, WHY,
BABY, WHY?

WELL,
NOW I DON'T KNOW,
BUT I'VE HEARD SAY,
THAT EV'RY LITTLE DOG'S
A-GONNA HAVE HIS DAY
YOU BETTER PAY ATTENTION,
DON'T YOU DARE FORGET,
'CAUSE I'M JUST
A LITTLE BABY
PUPPY YET.
I CAUGHT YOU
HONKY TONKING
WITH MY BEST FRIEND
THE THING TO DO
WAS LEAVE YOU,
BUT I SHOULDA
LEFT THEN.
NOW I'M TOO OLD
TO LEAVE YOU
BUT I STILL
GET SORE,
WHEN YOU COME HOME
A-FEELING
FOR THE KNOB
ON THE DOOR.

TELL ME
WHY, BABY, WHY
BABY,
WHY, BABY, WHY
YOU MAKE ME CRY,
BABY,
CRY, BABY,
CRY, BABY CRY?
I CAN'T HELP
BUT LOVE YOU
TILL THE DAY
THAT I DIE,
BUT TELL ME
WHY, BABY,
WHY, BABY,
WHY, BABY, WHY?
