LYRICS:

When your favorite shoe no longer fits
And your favorite chair ceases to sit
Quite right
A family dream continues to swell
All hopes and fears, a big fairy tale
Burns bright
Still the glass slipper just doesn’t fit
Her seat on the throne ceases to sit
Quite right, quite right

Last Words by the Pea Pickin' Hearts was recorded at Sound Biscuit Productions!Sweet Dumplin’ Rose spent all her life
Collecting hearts in Sugar Grove
Sweet as pie, oh Sugar, my
Oh darlin’, don’t you go
Or will she roam beyond the grove
Taking her heart, Sweet Dumplin’ Rose

The wedding dress will never fit
Borrowed & blue ceases to sit–quite right
A town holds its breath, hoping to sell
Their favorite daughter on reasons to quell–her flight
Every pew is packed. Will they all fit?
The bride is due. Where do we sit—the left or right?

Sweet Dumplin’ Rose spent all her life
Collecting hearts in Sugar Grove
Sweet as pie, oh Sugar, my
Oh darlin’, don’t you go
Or will she roam beyond the grove
Taking her heart, Sweet Dumplin’ Rose

Out the back, through the door
Across the Grove, see you no more
Keep the dress & favorite shoes
The throne is yours, borrowed & blue
Toes IN the grass, shoes in hand
Suitcase packed, taking a stand
Fairy tale aside on the road leaving Sugar Grove

Sweet Dumplin’ Rose spent all her life
Collecting hearts in Sugar Grove
Sweet as pie, oh Sugar, my
Oh darlin’, there she goes.
And now she roams past Sugar Grove
Taking our hearts Sweet Dumplin’ Rose
