I Wish I Could Have Been There

In the style of

John Anderson

Lyrics

when our baby
kate was born
it was the biggest
day of my life

lyin' there
little bows
in her hair
in the lovin' arms
of my wife

i was the proudest
papa in the u.s.a.
makin' a livin' on
the road somewhere
a thousand
miles away

it was a happy day
but kinda sad
i wish i could've
been there
i wish i could've
been there
i wish i could've
been there for that

little bobby hit
his first home run
he was the hero of
the hometown crowd
two to one
it was the winnin' run
everybody was
cheerin' loud

and mama
she was smilin' sayin'
he's a chip off
of the old block
but i was on the
road somewhere
between memphis
and little rock

it was a happy day
but kinda sad
i wish i could've
been there
i wish i could've
been there
i wish i could've
been there for that

now bobby and kate
are all grown up
and moved away
they stay in touch
we're proud of the
two good kids
we raised

and it's hard
to believe
we're celebratin'
our twenty-fifth
year today

this party's nice
but the kids
aren't here
at least they called
to say

congratulations
mom and dad
i wish we could've
been there
i wish we could've
been there
i wish we could've
been there for that

it was a happy day
but kinda sad
i wish they could've
been there
i wish they could've
been there
i wish they could've
been there for that
