He remembers the first time he met her
He remembers the first thing she said
He remembers the first time he held her,
The night that she came to his bed

He remembers her sweet way of saying,
"Honey, has something gone wrong?"
He remembers the fun and the teasing
And the reason he wrote her this song

I'll give you a daisy a day, dear
I'll give you a daisy a day
I'll love you until the rivers run still
And the four winds we know blow away

They would walk down the streets in the evening
And for years, I would see them go by
Their love, it was more than the clothes that they wore
And could be seen in the gleam of their eyes

As a kid, they would take me for candy
And I'd love to go tagging along
We'd hold hands as we walked to the corner
And the old man would sing her his song

I'll give you a daisy a day, dear
I'll give you a daisy a day
I'll love you until the rivers run still
And the four winds we know blow away

Now he walks down the street in the evening
And he stops by the old candy store
And I somehow believe he's believing
That he's holding her hand like before

For he knows all her love's walking with him
And he smiles at the things she might say
And the old man walks up to the hilltop
And he gives her her daisy a day

I'll give you a daisy a day, dear
I'll give you a daisy a day
I'll love you until the rivers run still
And the four winds we know blow away
The four winds we know blow away

    General Commentwe played this song at my mom's funeral, it still makes me cry everytime I hear it. My dad kind of goes along with the words of this song, he brings flowers to her grave every week. To me this songs is undying love and devotion.
