Everything I See

  • Drove down to the old place a couple a days ago
    Where I grew up riding next to you, learning everything I know
    I noticed just how green things were when I pulled through the gate
    Like the greener pastures up there where we'll meet again someday
    Wish I'd have thought to slip a phone in the pocket of your suit
    When the good Lord called you home on that sunny day in June

    Then I could send a picture of all the things you touched
    To think a man who led such a simple life could leave behind so much
    It's just a lot of little things but they mean the world to me
    Everywhere I look there's one more memory
    There's a little bit of you in everything I see

    Seems to rain now all the time, hadn't seen this much in years
    Didn't take you long to send back home some answers to our prayers
    A lot of things are different now but so much is still the same
    And I accidentally dial your number almost every day
    Wish I'd have thought to slip a phone in the pocket of your suit
    When the good Lord called you home on that sunny day in June

    Then I could send a picture of all the things you touched
    To think a man who led such a simple life could leave behind so much
    It's just a lot of little things but they mean the world to me
    Everywhere I look there's one more memory
    There's a little bit of you in everything I see

    If somehow you could find that cloud with my stuff locked away
    Dust it off and you could see the things I send you everyday

    Yeah, I could send a picture of your great-grandson growing up
    Tell you one more time I love you and that I miss you so much
    Sometimes it's the little things that really get to me
    Everywhere I look there's one more memory
    There's a little bit of you in everything I see

    Everywhere I look there's one more memory
    There's a little bit of you in everything I see Writer/s: BUBBA STRAIT, DEAN DILLON, GEORGE STRAIT, KEITH GATTIS
