LYRICS

Forty years by her side
To have and to hold 
All their lives
They raised up the kids 
The best they knew how
Buried the youngest
And carried on somehow

Now he works in the yard
The children are grown
‘Till the day that she died
He was never alone
He keeps himself busy 
The best he knows how
Buries the past
And carries on somehow

In the wind that blows west
In a loved one’s last breath
In a moment
Lives change forever
Oh with fire or a fist
Or a lover’s last kiss
Changed forever

He tells stories of war
And of hard lessons learned
When his friends flew without him
And never returned
Of the day that they met
And the night he came home
With his lifetime of memories
He carries on alone

He turns down the bed
He turns out the light
He talks to his daughter
And he talks to his wife
He says “I’m gettin’ along
The best I know how
I feel you there with me
And carry on somehow”
