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 enjoy You backyard concerts for we had no television We'd just begun our life as man and wife and hardships then Could scarcely 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 days When your pride gave way when you told the kids There'd be no gifts cause we were broke 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 nothing 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 pillow for my head And the kids are wild about the brand new car You and I can order steak with all the trimmings and not worry If we've spent a dollar more than we can spare No wonder in our prayers we've thanked the man upstairs who led us through The years of raisin' 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 timethere never was a time we didn't love
