There Never Was A Time Lyrics

There Never Was A Time - Porter Wagoner & Dolly Parton

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

You 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

But 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

But there never was a time we didn't love

 

Now there's an easy chair for my back a satin pillow

For your 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 your prayers

We've thanked the man upstairs who led us through

The years of rearin' 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

 

No there never was a time

 

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