Lyrics

It was only nineteen years ago
Sitting in the car with the radio
Crying to an AM station
That song was my salvation, yes

Something in the music spoke my pain
Something in the words I can’t explain
It was only nineteen years ago

It was only nineteen years ago
I remember walking out the door
I would see your face no more
It was only nineteen years ago

It was only nineteen sixty one
You were dreaming of your bride to come
And working in a foreign land
Though the words you would not understand

Must have been the strangest dream to dream
To live in a life of such extremes
It was only nineteen sixty one

It was only six years later on
You would hold her in your arms
Someone you could call your own
You’d no longer be alone

Just like the wind that sways the trees
When winter’s stealing every leaf
It was only nineteen years ago
When I had to let you go
