(written by Shaye Smith and Ken Harrell)

Mom brought us lemonade
On a Coca-Cola tray
Ice rattling in plastic glasses
We'd see who drink the fastest
In a split second we were gone
Racing cross the fresh cut lawn
And we were running barefoot in the grass
Barefoot in the grass

When I was twelve I started liking boys
She was still playing with her toys
I pointed out that she was only nine
And I didn't need her tagging behind
Then I would jump on my red bicycle
I'd look back and I 'd get tickled
She was running barefoot in the grass
Barefoot in the grass

Chorus:
And it brings a smile to my face
Seeing her, no shoes in a footrace
Running as fast as she can
Waving her hands and calling out my name
Little Sister
Oh, I wonder if she knows how bad I miss her

I remember being so confused
When mom and daddy broke the news
I never even saw her cry
Though I could tell she was hurting inside
But, now I'm sure she's got a full head of hair
And I know that somewhere up there
She's running barefoot in the grass
Barefooot in the grass

(Repeat Chorus)

Mom brought us lemonade
On a Coca-Cola tray
Ice rattling in plastic glasses
We'd see who drink the fastest
Love to see you run
Little sister, run
Barefoot in the grass, barefoot in the grass
