Looking back, he sees it all.
It was her first day, the night he came to call.
Her dad said said "Son, have her home on time
And promise me you'll never leave her side."
He took her to a show in town.
He was 10 feet off the ground,

As he was walking her home, holding her hand.
All the way she smiled and stole the breath right out of him.
Down that old road, with the stars up above.
He remembers where he was the night he fell in love.
He was walking her home.

10 more years in a waiting room at half-past-one,
So when the doctor said "come in and meet your son"
His knees went weak when he saw his wife.
She was smiling and she said "he's got your eyes."
As she slept, he held her tight.
His mind went back to that first night.

He was walking her home and holding her hand.
All the way she smiled and stole the breath right out of him.
Down that old road, with the stars up above.
He remembers where he was the night he fell in love.
He was walking her home.

He wandered through the best days of her life.
60 years together and he never left her side.
A nursing home at 85 and the doctor said
"It could be her last night" and the nurse said
"Should we tell him now?
Or should he wait until the morning to find out?"
When they checked her room that night,
He was laying by her side.

He was walking her home and holding her hand.
All the way she smiled when he said "this is nothing yet."
Just for a while, they were 18.
She was still more beautiful to him than anything.

He was walking her home.
He was walking her home.

Looking back he sees it all.
It was her first date, the night he came to call.
