Many tales of love have been told upon the stage
Found and lost year to year, age to age
Boy meets girl, girl falls in love
Then the boy goes away

Let the lights go down
Children gather round
And let me tell you of the tale of lonely Sarah Brown


Little miss Brown was born in a town not far from here
Her beauty and grace grew and grew with every year
She dreamed of men she’d read in fairy tales
But all of her pursuits had failed

She didn’t understand that finding a man to take her hand
Meant she’d have to pack her bags, travel on to foreign lands
So she booked a trip, kissed her sorry town goodbye
kissed her momma on the cheek, said “Oh now don’tcha cry”


Sarah traveled on through the rain and the snow
To find a love that she could call her own
That would never let her bed grow cold
Stay with her even when she’s old
A love that would surpass all of the stories she’d been told

Then one day, she found herself a man
That took her hopes and dreams and bundled them up inside his hands
That held her, and kissed her, made a body feel right
And made love all through the night to lonely little Sarah Brown


They married on a Sunday
Had a baby on a Friday
He left her on a Tuesday....

And she cried
Oh she cried
