Alison Krauss – Tiny Broken Heart lyrics

He was just a little farm lad so busy at play
With his little play mate outside the gate
He stopped to watch a truck that was parking next door
At the home of his tiny play mate

Then he saw his daddy watching too
As the men swiftly walked to the cottage door
He knew they were strangers that came from the town
Men he had never seen before

They soon went to work when he heard his daddy say
Our neighboors are moving today
"Oh no" he cried dear God don't let it be
They can't take my sweetheart away

I know Dad you don't understand
How a heart so young could conceive a plan
I'm only 7 now but it's just like you say
Daddy some day I'll be a man

The man who owns the farm where your playmates do live
He told me it has to be this way
For winter time has come and the work is all done
That's why they are moving today

Let us buy the farm so they can stay
And give them all the toys that dear Santa gave
And give them all my pennies in my little piggy bank
Pennies that my darling help me save
