Suds In The Bucket Lyrics – Sara Evans

She was in the backyard – they say it was a little past nine

When her prince pulled up – a white pickup truck

Her folks shoulda 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 mama’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 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 morn

Nothin’ quite like this has happened here before

Well he must have been a looker – smooth talkin’ son of a 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 biddy’s 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

[Instrumental]

[3rd Chorus]

She’s got her pretty little bare feet hangin’ out the window

And they’re headin’ up to Vegas tonight

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
