I Wish I Could Have Been There Lyrics

When our baby Kate was born it was the biggest day of my life
Lying there, little bows in her hair in the loving arms of my wife
I was the proudest papa in the U.S.A.
Makin' a living on the road somewhere a thousand miles away

It was a happy day but kinda sad
I wish I could have been there
I wish I could have been there
I wish I could have been there, for that

Little Bobby hit his first home run
He was the hero of the home town crowd
Two to one, it was a winning run, everybody was cheering loud
And momma she was smilin' saying he's a chip off of the old block
But I was on the road somewhere between Memphis and Little Rock

It was a happy day but kinda sad
I wish I could have been there
I wish I could have been there
I wish I could have been there, for that

Now Bobby and Kate are all grown up and moved away
They stay in touch, we're proud of the two good kids we raised
And it's hard to believe we're celebrating our twenty fifth year today
This party's nice but the kids aren't here, at least they called to say
"Congratulations mom and dad"

I wish we could have been there
I wish we could have been there
I wish we could have been there, for that

It was a happy day but kinda sad
I wish they could have been there
I wish they could have been there
I wish they could have been there, for that
