  • I never did too much to make her stay here
    And words of love to her I'd never say
    I guess I learned a lesson when she walked out to stay
    But I'm sure gonna miss her, sure gonna miss her, sure gonna miss her every day

    I don't suppose I ever said "I love you"
    And I found out too late that wasn't right
    I'm just now realizin' what I lost, that's why I'm cryin'
    And I'm sure gonna miss her, sure gonna miss her, sure gonna miss her every night

    I know I took her love for granted
    Guess you could say my love was blind
    Thought if she left that I could stand it
    Or else it didn't matter at the time

    I heard she's found a guy that treats her better
    I hope he knows that "he's a lucky guy"
    I know the rumor's true because I saw her today
    And I'm sure gonna miss her, he was walking with her, sure gonna miss her, yes I am Writer/s: BOBBY RUSSELL

  • Lou from Hollywood, CaBobby Russell, who wrote Sure Gonna Miss Her, Honey, Little Green Apples, etc....did NOT write He Ain't Heavy. That was co-written by Bob Russell, who was quite a bit older than Bobby and who died in 1970, the very year He Ain't Heavy became a big hit. They were not related.
