Tiny broken heart by Alison Krauss
He was just a little farm lad, so busy at play
With his little play mate outside the gate.
Well, he stopped to watch a truck that was parking next door
At the home of his tiny play mate.
Then he saw his Daddy watchin' too
As the men swiftly walked to the Carter's door.
He knew they were strangers that came from the town,
Men he had never seen before.
They soon went to work when he heard his Daddy say
"Our neighbours are moving today."
"Oh no!" he cried, "dear God, don't let it be!
They can't take my sweetheart away!"
"I know Dad you don't understand
How a heart so young could conceive a plan.
I'm only seven now, but it's just like you say,
Daddy, some day I'll be a man."
"The man who owns the farm where your play mates do live,
He told me it'd have to be this way.
For winter time has come, and the work is all done,
That's why they are moving today."
"Let us buy the farm so they can stay!
And give him all the toys that dear Santa gave!
And give him all my pennies in my little piggy bank!
Pennies that my darlin' helped me save."...
