Those I've Loved

I remember waitin' by the curb with Mr. Murphy When daddy picked me up from school his eyes were red We drove to the hospital in a hurry Where my family gathered 'round my grandpa's bed He was my best friend, he taught me how to fish And I cried listenin' to my daddy pray For one of those I've loved along the way ♪ She had a ribbon in her hair the day I met her That whole next year we couldn't get enough After graduation she took off for Denver And for a while we both tried to keep in touch She was my best friend and it broke my heart But I don't regret the day that she became One of those I've loved along the way And I hope they know I never would've made it this far on my own 'Cause where would we all be without those Fathers and mothers, sisters and brothers The friends I've made, the long lost lovers I wouldn't be who I am today If not for those I've loved along the way, along the way ♪ Now I'm just a country boy with a guitar Lookin' back down this old road I've been travelin' on It was never about tryin' to be some big star For me it's always been about these songs You see they're my best friends, they're the life I live And I hope they've put a smile on the face Of those that I've loved along the way 'Cause I wouldn't be the man I am today If not for those I've loved along the way, along the way, along the way
