Greatest Days of All lyrics
(Dolly Parton)

A dirt dobber built its nest on my only Sunday dress
And the roof leaked in my shoes and when they dried they were too small
And the rats chewed a great big hole in my only winter coat
And at night I'd hear them gnaw the paper on my bedroom wall.

But I still say those were the greatest days of all
Some happy and some sad some good and some bad
But I still say those were the greatest days of all.

I used to wait by the garden gate where the hummingbirds came ev'ry day
To kiss the yellow roses growing up the garden wall
And in the tall grass I would lie til evening shadows brought the night
Through the window of my room I'd hear the whippoorwill's sad call.

And I still say those were the greatest days of all
Some happy and some sad some good and some bad
But I still say those were the greatest days of all.

Now as I make my way along the busy city sidewalks
My head arouring from the deafening city sound
You can't hear a whipporwill in this noisy city
And tall green grass don't grow along the sidewalks of this town.

And hummingbirds don't fly around these artificial roses
Like they did around the garden wall
And oh so often in my mind I'll go back to another time
And I still say those were the greatest days of all I still say
Those were the greatest days of all...
