Brad Sondahl Propinquity (13) Propinquity 04 May 99


I learned Propinquity from the folk process, not quite sure of its origins. ASCAP says a couple of brothers wrote it, and I think The Earl Scruggs Revue did it. Since I didn't find it in the db, I'm entering the lyrics as I remember them. If you can fill in with origins, groups performing it, or missing lyrics, please do.

I've known for a long time, the kind of girl you are, The smiles that cover teardrops, the way your head yields to your heart, The things you've kept inside of you, that most girls couldn't bear, Well I've known you for a long time, but I've just begun to care.

Ref: I know I've been blind, not to have loved you all of this time, But the image of you wasn't clear, I guess I've been standing too near,

It's taken me a while, but I have finally found, What you are to me, my love, and that's what really counts. And what you are to me my love, is something that we can share, Cause I've known you for a long time, but I've just begun to care.

There's also a verse about I've seen you make a look of love, from just an icy stare.

And I think I wrote this verse: I've seen you in the summer, I've seen you in the fall, Then days and weeks and months went by when I never saw you at all, But now the time has come, my love, when I want to see you more, Cause I've known you for a long time, but I've just begun to care.
