There Never Was A Time Lyrics

There was a time we'd sit in the backyard
'Cause the house would get so-o hot
From the summer sun there was no way of sleepin'
And you'd play your old guitar
We'd fight mosquitos and enjoy
Your backyard concert for we had no television

We'd just begun our life as man and wife
And hardships then
Could scaresely scare us into quittin'
Things were far from bein' fine
We often dined upon a dime
But there never was a time we didn't love

And that Christmas brought our saddest day
When your pride gave way as you told the kids
There'd be no gifts 'cause we were broke
And though their little tears of grief
Were so hard to see, it didn't hurt me
Like the lump I knew was in your throat

It was then with arms entwined
We both broke down and cried
For it seemed like nothin' good would ever come
The doctor bills we couldn't pay
They came and took our car away
But there never was a time we didn't love

Now there's an easy chair for my back
A satin pillo' for my head
And the kids are wild about their brand new cars
Dad and I can order steak
With all the trimmin's and not worry
If we've spent a dollar more than we can spare

No wonder in our prayers
We thank the man upstairs who led us through
The years of rearin' kids and payin' bills
And I think he guided us
Not because we were smart
But just because there never was a time we didn't love

No there never was a time, never was a time
There never was a time we didn't love
Oh there never was a time, never was a time
There never was a time we didn't love (fade)
