I heard that awful song from 1968 on the radio today. Bobby Goldsboro had everyone in tears or on the edge of a toilet; there was no in between.
See the tree
How big it's grown
But it hasn't been that long
It wasn't big.
Since Goldsboro wrote a lot of his other hits, such as "See the Funny Little Clown," many assumed that he also wrote Honey. Wrong.
The songwriter was Bobby Russell. Russell also wrote "Little Green Apples" for O.C. Smith as well as "The Night That the Lights Went Out in Georgia." Either of these beats the hell out of Honey.
Honey, I miss you
And I'm being good.
