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.
