      About "The Days Of Sand And Shovels"

      Lyrics for Waylon Jennings - "The Days Of Sand And Shovels"

      When I noticed her the first time
      I was outside running barefoot in the rain
      She lived in the house next door
      And her nose was pressed against the window pane

      When she looked at me
      She smiled and showed a place, where two teeth used to be
      And I heard her, ask her mom
      If she could come outside and play with me

      We became as one and
      Had a love without beginning or an end
      And every day she lived with me
      Was like a new day dawning once again

      And I've loved her since
      Every doll was Shirley Temple
      Soda pop was still a nickel
      Jam was on her fingertips
      Milk was circled on her lips

      After many years our love grew silent
      And at night I heard her cry
      When she left me in the fall
      I knew, that it would be our last goodbye

      I was man enough to give her everything
      She needed for a while
      But in searching for a perfect love
      I found that I could not give her a child

      And I've loved her since
      Every doll was Shirley Temple
      Soda pop was still a nickel
      Jam was on her fingertips
      Milk was circled on her lips

      Now she lives a quiet life
      And is the mother of a little girl
      And every time I pass her house
      My thoughts go back into another world.
      I can see her little girl
      Her nose is pressed against the window pane.
      She thinks I'm a lonely man
      Who wants to come inside out of the rain.
