lyrics

Mary Gauthier / Abeni C. Scott

I gave you my heart when I was just a girl
I left home for you, to go and see the world
Twenty years together, now I’m moving on
Not sure where I’m going, not sure where I belong

Oh I grew up with you, and you held my hand
I went from girl to woman cause you believed in who I am
Then I raised your sons and daughters just like you raised me
Not sure where I’m headed now, but it’s time for me to leave

I fought for you I loved and I believed
Twenty years in service to your needs
I always knew that I could be replaced
But nothing could prepare me for that day

I’m happy that I met you, I leave with no regret
Thank you for the memories, stories I will not forget
I’ll carry you inside my heart, family friends and home
I’ll remember what you taught me, as I head out on my own

I fought for you I loved and I believed
Twenty years in service to your needs
I always knew I could be replaced
Oh but nothing could prepare me for that day
Oh nothing could prepare me for that day
