When our baby Kate was born
It was the biggest day of my life
Lying there with bows in her hair
In the loving arms of my wife
I was the proudest papa in the usa
Making a livin' on the road somewhere a thousand miles away

It was a happy day but kinda sad
I wish I could've been there
I wish I could've been there
I wish I could've been there for that

Little Bobby hit his first homerun
He was the hero of the hometown crowd
2 to 1 it was a winning run
Everybody was cheering loud
And mama she was smiling
Saying hes a chip off, off the old block
But I was on the road somewhere
Between Memphis and Little Rock

It was a happy day but kinda sad
I wish I could've been there
I wish I could've been there
I wish I could've been there for that

Now Bobby and Kate are all grown up
And moved away
They stayed in touch
We're proud of the two good kids we raised
And its hard to believe we are celebrating our 25th year today
"this party's nice, but the kids arent here"
At least they called to say
Congratulations mom and dad

I wish we could've been there
I wish we could've been there
I wish we could've been there for that

It was a happy day but kinda sad
I wish they could've been there
I wish they could've been there
I wish they could've been there for that
