About Honey

"Honey", also known as "Honey (I Miss You)", is a song written by Bobby Russell. He first produced it with former Kingston Trio member Bob Shane. Then he gave it to American singer Bobby Goldsboro, who recorded it for his 1968 album of the same name, originally titled Pledge of Love. The song's narrator mourns his deceased wife, beginning with him looking at a tree in their garden, remembering how "it was just a twig" on the day she planted it. This single about the loss of a spouse was No. 1 the week of April 7, 1968.

See the tree, how big it's grown 
But friend it hasn't been too long 
It wasn't big
I laughed at her and she got mad, 
The first day that she planted it
Was just a twig
Then the first snow came and she ran out 
To brush the snow away
So it wouldn't die
Came runnin' in all excited, 
Slipped and almost hurt herself
And I laughed till I cried

She was always young at heart, 
Kinda dumb and kinda smart 
And I loved her so
And I surprised her with a puppy
Kept me up all Christmas Eve two years ago
And it would sure embarrass her
When I came in from workin' late 
'Cause I would know
That she'd been sittin' there and cryin'
Over some sad and silly late, late show

And honey, I miss you and I'm bein' good
And I'd love to be with you if only I could

She wrecked the car and she was sad
And so afraid that I'd be mad 
But what the heck
Though I pretended hard to be
Guess you could say she saw through me 
And hugged my neck
I came home unexpectedly 
And caught her cryin' needlessly
In the middle of a day
And it was in the early spring 
When flowers bloom and robins sing
She went away

And honey, I miss you and I'm bein' good
And I'd love to be with you if only I could

One day while I was not at home 
While she was there and all alone
The angels came
Now all I have is memories of honey 
And I wake up nights and call her 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 her and she got mad
The first day that she planted it, 
Was just a twig
