Lyrics: Suds in the Bucket

She was in the backyard they say it was a little past nine
When her prince pulled up, a white pickup truck
Her folks should of seen it comin' it was only just a matter of time
Plenty old enough, and you can't stop love
She stuck a note on the screen door "sorry but I got to go"
That was all she wrote, her mamma's heart was broke
That was all she wrote, so the story goes

(Chorus) Now her daddy's in the kitchen starin' out the window, scratchin' and a rackin' his brains
How could 18 years just up and walk away?
Our little pony-tailed girl grown up to be a woman
Now shes gone in the blink of an eye
She left the suds in the bucket and the clothes hangin' out on the line

Now don't you wonder what the preacher's gonna preach about sunday mornin' Nothing quite like this has happened here before
Well he must have been a looker, smooth talkin' son of gun
For such a grounded girl to just up and run
Course you can't fence time, and you can't stop love

(2nd Chorus) Now all the bitties in the beauty shop gossip goin' non stop Sippin on pink lemonade
How could 18 years just up and walk away?
Our little pony-tailed girl grown up to be a woman
Now shes gone in the blink of an eye
She left the suds in the bucket and the clothes hangin' out on the line

(3rd chorus) She's got her pretty little bare feet hangin' out the window And they're headed up to Vegas tonight
How could 18 years just up and walk away
Our little pony tailed girl growed up to be a woman
Now she's gone in the blink of an eye
She left the suds in the bucket and the clothes hangin' out on the line
She left the suds in the bucket and the clothes hangin' out on the line

She was in the backyard they say it was a little past nine
When her prince pulled up, a white pick up truck
Plenty old enough, and you can't stop love
No you can't fence time, and you can't stop love
