Story behind the song
Ken's niece, about 8 or 9-years old the first time, had asked him on several occasions, over a couple years, if he would write a song about her. He finally did. It has been one of the Livingroom Legends' most requested and well-known songs.
Lyrics
Time is like sand It can fall swiftly through your hands So just know that What you've lost you can't get back But, Whitney LaRue I'm glad I had some to spend with you Whatever you do Don't ever forget that I love you I hear that you've grown Your momma tells me on the phone Send her my love And give your daddy a big hug But, Whitney LaRue I'm glad I had time to spend with you Whatever you do Don't ever forget that we love you And wherever you may go And whatever you become Through all your highs and lows You'll always have this song to hum Yeah, yeah, yeah You wanted advice So here's me as one who's wise Just play your guitar Cause it can mend a broken heart And this much I know Jesus can heal a troubled soul But, Whitney LaRue This is to say that I miss you Whitney LaRue Don't ever forget that I love you Whitney LaRue This is to say that I miss you Whitney LaRue Don't ever forget that I love you
