There's a thorn tree in the garden, if you know just what I mean,
And I hate to hurt your feelings but it's not the way it seems,
'Cause I miss her.

She's the only girl I've cared for, the only one I've known.
And no one ever shared more love than we've known.
And I miss her.

But it all seems so strange to see
That she'd ever turn her back on me
And leave without a last goodbye.
And if she winds up walking the streets,
Loving every other man she meets
Who'll be the one to answer why?
Lord, I hope it's not me, it's not me.

And if I never see her face again, I never hold her hand.
And if she's in somebody's arms, I know I'll understand
But I miss that girl. I still miss that girl.

Maybe someday soon, somewhere.

    General CommentBobby Whitlock wrote this song about a dog he had to give up, and the sorrow of losing his pet.
    (of course the lyrics can apply to a woman too, so it sorta has a double meaning)
