Everything To Me

 

My all-time buddy finally made it home

Made it home from war

He bought a banjo of his very own

At the music store

            It didn't matter that he couldn't play

            He stood on the corner and sang for days

            Told everybody that passed his way

 

 

                                    This means everything to me

                                    Everything to me

                                    Don't mean a thing to no one else

                                    But it's everything to me

 

 

I've thought about it and I don't know why

But it breaks my heart

Every time that I hear “Night by Night”

Well I fall apart

            To everybody it's just a line

            To this somebody it's a world gone by

            I'd try to tell you but I don't know why

           

 

 

                                    But it means everything to me

                                    Everything to me

                                    Don't mean a thing to no one else

                                    But it's everything to me
