There Comes a Time

In the house that my daddy built
Just south of the bridge in 1969
Where I grew up and he grew old
So many memories
So many stories untold

There comes a time
To ride off into the sunset
But we’ll never forget
Where it is that we come from
There comes a time
To bury all of our regrets
They say the lighter the load
The higher we climb
Singin shalala-lalala-lalalala

We were married on the Fourth of July
In the Red Rock Canyon
The desert sun in our eyes
We had a baby and for that I am grateful
But the odds were stacked against us
In the city of sin
