The Big Sunflower
Music from Laura Ingalls Wilder's Little House Books

Lyrics by Bobby Newcomb

There is a charm I can't explain
About a girl I've seen
My heart beats fast when she goes past
In a dark dress trimmed in green
Her eyes are bright as evening stars
So loving and so shy
And the folks all stop and look around
Whenever she goes by

Oh, I am as happy as a big sunflower
That nods and bends in the breezes
And my heart is as light as the wind that blows
The leaves from off the treeses

As days passed on and we became
Like friends of olden times
I thought the question I would pop
And ask her to be mine
But the answer I received next day
How could she treat me so?
Instead of being mine for life
She simply answered "No"


I went next day dressed in my best
This young girl for to see
To ask her if she would explain
Why she had shaken me
She said she really felt quite sad
To cause me such distress
And when I said "Won't you be mine?"
Of course she answered "Yes"


From By the Shores of Silver Lake
