Looking for song title for county lyrics, I only know some.?

I'm looking for a song, I used to sing it to my son Michael all the time but only this one line and now I cant find it.

It goes something like this:

I knew this boy his name was Michael, and he was 4 years old, he sat down on a rock beside me and taught me things I didnt know.

Its sung by a female country artist. I hope someone can help, now that hes older I want to burn it to cd for him.

Update:

I dont know how to thank you enough!!!!! Thank you so much.

    It's by Lee Ann Womack - it's called "Forever Everyday" - on her "Something Worth Leaving Behind" album

    I knew this kid, his name was Michael

    He was only four years old

    We sat on a rock and started talkin'

    And he told me things I didn't know

    He said yesterday he was an Indian

    And how he played with buffalo

    Well, I got a sense that he had been there

    And he made me really wanna go

    Remember waitin' all year for December

    Thought God was cryin' when it rained

    And that the stars were fireflies

    Dreams were real and big as life

    It was forever everyday

    I was tuckin' in my little girl

    She held my hand and we said a prayer

    I prayed, "Bless Grandma with the angels."

    And she said, "Hey Mom, she's standin' over there."

    Well, I couldn't see her but I don't doubt it

    Maybe 'cause I'm older and less wise

    What if Heaven’s all around us

    But only seen through children’s eyes

    Remember waitin' all year for December

    Thought God was cryin' when it rained

    And that the stars were fireflies

    Dreams were real and big as life

    It was forever everyday

    They say when you're old you're a child again

    But do we have to wait 'till then

    Remember waitin' all year for December

    Thought God was cryin' when it rained

    And that the stars were fireflies

    Dreams were real and big as life

    It was forever everyday

    Forever

    I knew this kid his name was Michael
