White Picket Fence

Written By: Don Telford

WHITE PICKET FENCE

She climbed on his knee and whispered in his ear
When I'm a big girl and I live around here
Gonna buy me a cottage where the pretty maids grow
With a white picket fence, and flowers in a row.

When she met him she was only thirteen
They both fell in love and she told him of her dream
To live in a cottage where the pretty maids grow
With a white picket fence, and flowers in a row.

The choir sang, the church bells rang
And he held her hand and prayed
That the love they found in this fairy tale
Would never fade away

They both moved in to a place down the road
It was such a big house as houses go
But she found sometimes she was on her own
She didn't want a house, just a home

Late at night in a lonely room
Her heart cried out, would he be home soon?
But she wore this feelin' deep inside
Somethings wrong and it won't hide

When he left town a friend came around
And she cried the night away
The love she'd found in this fairy-tale
Had finally gone away

Over the years the love grew stale
And she lost her way in the fairy tale
And longed for a cottage where the pretty maids grow
With a white picket fence, and flowers in a row
