Alison Krauss – Tiny Broken Heart Lyrics

He was just a little farm lad so busy at play

In his little play house down by the gate

He stopped to watch a truck that was parking next door

At the home of his tiny playmate

Then he saw his Daddy watching too

As the man swiftly walked to the cottage door

He knew they were strangers that come from the town

Men he had never seen before

They soon were at their work and he heard his Daddy say

Our neighbors are moving today

Oh no he cried dear God don’t let it be

They can’t take my sweetheart away

I know Dad that you don’t understand

How a heart so young can conceive a plan

I’m only seven now but it’s just like you said

Dad someday I’ll be a man

The man who runs the farm where your playmate now lives

He told me it’d have to be this way

For winter time has come and their work is all done

So now they are moving away

Let us buy the farm so they can stay

Give them all my toys that dear Santa gave

And give him the pennies in my little bank

Pennies that my darling helped me save
