  1. The Promise

From the recording John Dodge

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
