(D) Fifty-two years you have been devoted to (G) me
(D) You have accepted it all, with no (A) pay
(D) Now our time is shorter, I begin to (G) see
(D) You are the one who put us (A) where we are (D) today.
(D) My years on the road, making the (G) sales
(D) Wouldnt have happened...at (A) all
(D) Without your care,... keeping the kids between the (G) rails
(D) You raised them, balanced the books, (A) never dropped the (D) ball
(D) Now we are both over seventy and on our (G) way
(D )You are still keeping us steady, making your (A) lists
(D) So, where do we have to go and do (G) today?
(D) Giving me the time to (A) seek my inter(D ests
(D) Marty, Stu, and our pretty Lee (G) Ann
(D) Seven (count them) Grand Children, top it (A) all
(D) Never would have happened without God and your (G) ---plan
(D) I know I am very lucky, to be (A) your old (D) man.
