Back to Trail In Life lyrics

Trail In Life

It was a May full moon
We parked the car
And I sang you a song
I wrote on my guitar

Oh, I have kissed
Many times since then
But that first one is special
One you don't forget

If I had asked you
Then you probably took my ring
But time and distance have a way
Of changing things

And sometimes I wonder
What it would have been like
If we had wandered
The same path in life

Tonight if you're out there
Looking up at the same moon
Girl, I hope that your trail in life
Has been good to you

College days
Frat house nights
You were more than
Just a bunch of rowdy friends of mine

You made leaving home
Not as hard to bear
Yeah, we swore we'd stick together
'Til we were in rocking chairs

But we all kind of scattered
Getting our lives in gear
The phone calls went from weeks to months
To I ain't heard in years

And sometimes I wonder
What it would have been like
If we had wandered
The same paths in life

Would we still smoke cigars?
Yeah, when the wild cats beat you
Oh friend, I hope that your trail in life
Has been good to you

The day I was born
They said you cried
When you signed those papers
And kissed me goodbye

Too young to know
How to raise me up
So you let me go and start
This world in a house of love

I was twelve years old
When daddy sat me down
And told me of a brave young girl
That I should know about

And sometimes I wonder
What it would have been like
If we had wandered
The same path in life

I think I would make you proud
Of the boy you never knew
God, I hope that your trail in life
Has been good to you

And some day I know
This old trail in life
Will wind back to you
