"Honey" as written by Richard Melville Hall, Bessie Jones and Alan Lomax....
See the tree how big it's grown but friend it hasn't been too long it wasn't big
And I laughed at him and he got mad
The first day that he planted it it was just a twig

Then the first snow came and he ran out to brush the snow away so it wouldn't die
Came runnin' in all excited slipped and almost hurt himself and I laughed till I cried
He was always young at heart kinda dumb and kinda smart and I loved him so
And I surprised him with a puppy kept me up all Christmas Eve two years ago
And it would sure embarrass me

When he'd come in from working late cause he'd always know
If I'd been sittin' there and cryin' over some sad and silly late late show
And honey I miss you and I'm being good and I'd love to be with you if only I could
He wrecked the car and he was sad and so afraid that I'd be mad but what the heck
Though I pretended hard to be

Guess you could say he saw through me and hugged my neck
He came home unexpectedly and caught me crying needlessly in the middle of the day
And it was in the early spring when flowers bloom and robins sing he went away
And honey I miss you and I'm being good and I'd love to be with you if only I could
One day while I was not at home and he was there and all alone the angels came

Now all I have are memories of honey and I wake up nights and call his name
Now my life's an empty stage where honey lived and honey played and love grew up
And a small cloud passes overhead and cries down on the flower bed that honey loved
And see the tree how big it's grown but friend it hasn't been too long it wasn't big
And I laughed at him and he got mad
The first day that he planted it it was just a twig
