Jim Reeves – Nickel Piece Of Candy lyrics

When you were a little girl and lived across the street
We would walk to the candy store and I would always treat
Little big hearted candy boy the candy man would say
When I bought you candy bars to steal your heart away
Just a nickel piece of candy used to make your dreams come true
You'd hold my hand and tell me someday I'll love you

Through the years of growing up I thought your love grew too
Till your heart longed for the things I couldn't buy for you
Slowly I could feel your love begin to fade and die
Then you found another much wealthier than I
Just a nickel piece of candy...

Little girl with golden curles and eyes for diamond rings
You grew up and soon forgot so many simple things
But I wonder if you're happy now cause when you pass me by
I think I see a teardrop in the corner of your eye
Just a nickel piece of candy...
Someday I'll love you
