"Always in the Band" as written by Richie Mcdonald, Jerry Vandiver and Ron Harbin....
High school halftime Friday night
Standing on the fifty yard line
Big old blue and gold tuba in my hand

I could see Katie Ann in the popcorn line
Couldn't see how to make her mine
I was always in the band

At eighteen I found a cheap guitar
Became Seeger and Willie in a smokey bar
And bared my soul beneath a rusty old mic stand

I get her name and number on a second break
Watch someone dance my chance away
I was always in the band

Sometimes this dream demands more than I can give it
But even still I don't regret a single minute
Oh, to hear you laugh, to feel your pain
To see a thousand waving flames
It's just a part of me, that's who I am
I was always in the band

Met her backstage before a show Las Vegas rodeo
Three months later I asked her for her hand

We tied the knot on the Sixth of June
Woulda had a honeymoon
But I was always in the band

Left Dallas on the way to Omaha
Round Tapeeka when I got the call
Baby's coming, honey, get here when you can

Yeah, I guess I shoulda turned that bus around
I'da let 30,000 people down I was always in the band

Sometimes this dream demands more than I can give it
But even still I don't regret a single minute
Oh, to hear you laugh, to feel your pain
To see a thousand waving flames
It's just a part of me
Thank God she understands
I was always in the band

I was always in the band
