03. The Kids

1919: The Ballad of Rexford
by Mark Lee Townsend



 

Honey, you better sit down
she said, the day has finally
come,
A child is on the way
And he will be everything
we couldn’t be ourselves
He could be president; you
know it’s true
You wanted a boy, and even
though we haven’t got a lot,
Provision is made this day
And he could be the one to
care for us in our old age
You can be sure your
name will carry through
These are better days,
and it will remain this way
Now the family is completed
The joy we’ll know outweighs
the
freedom that we’ll give away
We have everything we’ve
needed
And then came the girls,
though
maybe a bit later down the
line
but still we will carry on
‘cause soon we’ll catch our
breath,
and we’ll look up and they’ll
be
gone and we will wonder
where
the years all went
These are better days, and
it will remain this way
Now the family is completed
The joy we’ll know outweighs
the
freedom that we’ll give away
We have everything we’ve
needed

MLT- piano, guitars, harmonium, mellotron, vocals JR McNeely-bass Chris Cooke-drums
