Story

(The first love song I wrote after getting together with Tom.  He really did lose his shoe in my backyard).  

Lyrics

I found your shoe underneath my tree

The night of our backyard jamboree

When you spread your blanket for the devil to see

And spooned and crooned your love for me

 

Planted a flower inside your shoe

To shoe the world that our love was true

And it smiles at the sun and winks at the moon

And says pretty baby won’t you come home soon

Please pretty baby won’t you come home soon

 

Won’t you come home soon and marry me

Under the shade of the backyard tree

And I’ll carry the flower planted in your shoe

To show the world our love was true

 

We’ll build a house up in that tree

I’d feed you cake and marigold tea

And you’ll spread your blanket for the devil to see

And spoon and croon your love for me

Spoon and croon your love for me

Spoon and croon your love for me
