Lyrics

 One November day, they looked out on the highway

“Not your way, not my way, but together we’ll ride.”

Then they made a vow, “Now we’ll never be lonely.

And I love you only fr the rest of my life.”

 

When the night grows cold, when the rain washes down

When the hot wind blows, I will still be around

Welcome to the family, welcome to the guest of honor

The promise of Nancy and Henderson Gene

 

Wish that I’d been there when old tall dark and handsome

First stretched out his hand for Miss sunny and fair

But that was long ago, and I was only a twinkle

Just barely a ripple in my mother’s hair

 

Now the years have flown, how the time hurries by

All our babies grown in the blink of an eye

 

So we raise our glass and we toast the commitment

This special Thanksgiving we share in our hearts

If I had the chance to make everything different

It’s you I would marry and never to part

 

When the night grows cold, when the rain washes down

When we both grow old, I will still be around

Welcome to the family, welcome to the guest of honor

The promise of Nancy and Henderson Gene
