Suds in the Bucket 🎸

Suds in the BucketOne of my Dad’s favorite pastimes was playing the electric guitar.  He used to spend hours practicing in the “radio room” downstairs in the house on 64th Avenue  and he was pretty good at it too!  Well … back in 2004, Sara Evans released a tune that went to #1 on the country charts called Suds In The Bucket.  It’s definitely one my favorite songs and to this day, every time I hear it, I think of my Dad!  I smile as I picture him up on a stage, playing lead guitar in a country band performing Suds in the Bucket ( twang, twang, dadang, dadang, dadangle, lang, lang  …).  Yup, I think Wally may have missed his calling … he should’ve been country musician!  (Lucky for me I guess that he kept his day job! ).  Anyway, here’s a link to Sara Evans’ video on youtube –> Suds in the Bucket.  Enjoy!

Suds In The Bucket

By:  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
