lyrics

All I did was go to war, sleep and work and eat
She was raising babies on her own
I was trained to deal with everything That came my way
You know there ain’t no manual
For trying to raise a family all alone

I am thankful, ever thankful
For each and every day
And everything she did back at the start
The fact is she still holds us all together in her hands
How can I begin show her
All the gratitude I owe her in my heart

Through the tough times
All the hard work
Not knowing if you’re ever coming home
To the good times
On the back porch
Where the kids have all room they need to roam
I want to be there for the ball game
Or when my daughter comes home with a broken heart
We’re gonna get there
At the right time, you can bet
No regrets

I just want to give my children
All the love my parents gave to me
And that’s a real high order
When I think back on that happy family
All the moves we made before
Were harder than the move we’re planning still
I can’t wait to watch the sunset
On the porch swing of our cabin on the hill

Chorus:
We’ve known tough times and hard work
Not knowing if I’d ever get back home
To the good times on the back porch
Where the kids have all the room they need to roam
I want to be there for the ball game
And when my daughter comes home with a broken heart
We’re gonna get there at the right time
No matter what we’ll have a good time
…Baby you just ain’t seen nothing yet
No regrets
