Sara Evans Suds In the Bucket Lyrics

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 have 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

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 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

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

Now all the biddies 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 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’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
