Little Brother Donovan Tucker (c) 2017 BMI

You were two years younger than me
Sometimes we'd fight about stupid things
Like that's my glove , that's my ball
And no, you can't play with them all

But you were more than just my brother
You were more than just a friend
You taught me things I never learned from any others
till you were ashes in the wind
Till you were ashes in the wind

verse 2

We built a treehouse in the backyard
Where we played cards and other games
We followed girls up and down our street
You always did better than me

We spent our summers playing baseball
Wore our uniforms with pride
What I'd give to have a catch with you today
Hear your laugh and see your smile

life for you was way too fleeting
But I thank the Lord for memories


cause you were more than just my brother
sometimes a thorn stuck in my side
I never told you that I love you little brother
so Im telling you tonite
Im telling you tonite

you were two years younger than me...
