Dickey Lee - Rocky Lyrics

 

Alone until my eighteenth year, we met four springs ago

She was shy and had a fear, of things she did not know

But we got it on together in such a super way

We held each other close at night, and traded dreams each day

She said Rocky I've never been in love before, don't know if I can do it

But if you let me lean on you take my hand I might get through it, through it

I said baby, oh sweet baby it's love that sets us free

And God knows if the world should end your love is safe with me

We found an old gray house, and you would not believe the way

We worked at night to fix it up, took classes in the day

Painting walls and sipping wine, sleeping on the floor

With so much love with just two, soon we found there'd be one more

And she said Rocky I've never had a baby before, don't know if I can do it

But if you let me lean on you, take my hand I might get through it, through it

I said baby, oh sweet baby it's love that sets us free, 

and God knows if the word should end your love is safe with me.

We had lots of problems then, but we had lots of fun

Like the birthday party, when our baby girl turned one

I was proud and satisfied, life had so much to give

Till the day they told me that she didn't have long to live

She said Rocky I never had to die before don't know if I can do it

Now it's back to two again my little girl and I

Who looks so much like her sweet mother, sometimes that makes me cry

I sleep alone at nights again, I walk alone each day

And sometimes when I'm about to give in, I hear her sweet voice say to me

Rocky you know you've been alone before, you know that you can do it

But if you'd like to lean on me, take my hand I'll help you through it, through it.

I said baby, oh sweet baby it's love that sets us free

And God knows if the world should end, your love is safe with me

She said Rocky you know you've been alone before...
