Skeeter Davis - There Never Was a Time Lyrics

(Myra Smith - Margaret Lewis)

There was a time we'd sit in the backyard cause the house would get so hot
From the summer sun there was no way of sleepin'
And you'd play your old guitar we'd fight mosquitos and enjoyed
Your backyard concerts for we had no television.

We'd just begun our life as man and wife and hard ships then
Could scaresly scare us into quittin'
Things were far from bein' fine we often dined upon a dime
There never was a time we didn't love.

The Christmas brought us saddest days when your pride gave a way you told the kids
There'd be no gifts cause we were broke
Though their little tears of grief was so hard to see it didn't hurt me
Like the love I knew was in your throat.

It was then with arms entwined we both broke down and cried
For it seemed ike nothing good would ever come
The doctor bills we couldn't pay they came and took our car away
There never was a time we didn't love.

Now there's an easy chair for my back and satin pillows for your head
And the kids are wild about the brand new cars
You and I can order steak with all the trimmings and not worry
If we've spent a dollar more than we could spare.

No wonder in your prayers we've thanked the man upstairs who led us through
The years of ragin' kids and payin' bills
And I think he guied us not because we were smart but just because
There never was a time we didn't love.

There never was a time never was a time never was a time we didn't love
Never was a time never was a time never was a time we didn't love...
