Well he gave her a diamond ring,  she said I’m not ready yet,
He had to ask her three more times, she finally said yes. 
She put it on in 68 and then he shipped out overseas. 
At 12 years and nine months later she had me,
And it’s been fifty years today and I said Dad, how ya doin?
 
And he said, it feels like six months, I know it’s been longer
But after fifty years, we just keep gettin stronger.
Son I just wish for you a love like your mama and a
Lifetime of laughter and tears, one day it’ll feel like six
Months after fifty years.
 
Well, I said Dad, what’s it take to make it, there must be a secret,
He said the truth is son, when you’ve got love, you don’t need a
Reason, but a little good dirt and a little good luck and a whole
Lotta Jesus. And one thing you’ll never get enough of, that’s time.

When it feels like six months, I know it’s been longer,
But after fifty years, we just keep gettin stronger.
Son, I just wish for you a love like your mama and a
Lifetime of laughter and tears, one day it’ll feel like six
Months after fifty years. Ah, it’s a lifetime, but man it’ll fly by.

It feels like six months, I know it’s been a little longer,
But after fifty years, we just keep gettin stronger.
Son I just wish for you, a love like your mama and a
Lifetime of laughter and tears and one day it’ll feel like
Six months after fifty years. Ah, has it been fifty years,
It’s been fifty good years
