"Barefoot in the Grass" as written by Shaye Smith and Ken Harrell....
Mom bought us lemonade
On a coca-cola tray
Ice rattlin' in plastic glasses
We'd see who could drink the fastest
In a split second we were gone
Racin' cross the fresh cut lawn
And we were runnin' barefoot in the grass
Barefoot in the grass

When I was twelve I started likin' boys
She was still playin' with her toys
I pointed out that she was only nine
I didn't need her taggin' behind
Then I would jump on my red bicycle
I'd look back, I'd get tickled
She was runnin' barefoot in the grass
Barefoot in the grass

It brings a smile to my face
Seein' her, no shoes in a foot race
Runnin' as fast as she can
Wavin' her hands and calling out my name
Little sister
Oh I wonder if she knows how bad I miss her

I remember being so confused
When mom and daddy broke the news
I never even saw her cry
Though I could tell she was hurtin' inside
But now I'm sure she has a full head of hair
And I know that somewhere up there
She's runnin' barefoot in the grass
Barefoot in the grass

It brings a smile to my face
Seein' her, no shoes in a foot race
Runnin' as fast as she can
Wavin' her hands and calling out my name
Little sister
Oh I wonder if she knows how bad I miss her

Mom brought us lemonade
On a coca-cola tray
Ice rattlin' in plastic glasses
We'd see who could drink the fastest
