When our baby Kate was born it was the biggest day of my life Lying there little bows in her hair in the loving arms of my wife I was the proudest papa in the U.S.A. Making a living on the road somewhere a thousand miles away It was a happy day, but kinda sad. I wish I coulda been there I wish I coulda been there, I wish I coulda been there for that. Little Bobby hit his first home run he was the hero of the hometowncrowd Two to one it was the winning run, everybody was cheering loud And mama she was smiling saying, he's a chip off of 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 coulda been there I wish I coulda been there, I wish I coulda been there for that. Now Bobby and Kate are all grown up and moved away They stay in touch, we're proud of the two good kids we raised And it's hard to believe we're celebrating our 25th year today This party's nice, but the kids aren't here, at least they called to say Congradulations Mom and Dad. I wish we coulda been there I wish we coulda been there, I wish we coulda been there for that. It was a happy day, but kinda sad. I wish they coulda been there I wish they coulda been there, I wish they coulda been there for that.
