Better Part Of Life Lyrics

Artist: Dolly Parton
Album: My Tennessee Mountain Home

We're all together once again
For the first time in I don't know when
We were so close once upon a time
There were five of us kids at home
Two girls, three boys and Dad and Mom
But that was in the better part
Of life we left behind
Remember that old swimming hole
Where we would swim so long ago
And all them possum grapes and muskedines
And do you recall the time
We all got drunk on homemade wine
That was in the better part
Of life we left behind

Life was simple for us then
If only it could be again
How I wish we could go back in time
But time moves on and nothin' lasts
Except the memories from the past
Memories from the better part
Of life we left behind

Remember how we talked as kids
Of what we'd be when we got big
And all the dreams that we held in our minds
I wanted to be a singin' star
And you all said that I'd go far
But that was in the better part
Of life we left behind

Remember all the fun we had
Back when they say times were bad
And life was good to us and things were fine
We had fun and we had love
And a mom and dad to care for us
But that was is the better part
Of life we left behind

Life was simple for us then
If only it could be again
How I wish we could go back in time
But time moves on and nothin' lasts
Except the memories from the past
Memories from the better part
Of life we left behind
Sweet memories from the better part
Of life we left behind
