about

With the rodeo finals that my grandson & I had recently attended together, and memories of the our (my precious wife & I) rural lifestyle flooding my mind, and with our 35th anniversary coming up, the following song just seemed to flood my being; so I wrote it down.
As Paul Harvey would say, the following song is the "rest of the story."

lyrics

WE STARTED OUT SO MANY YEARS AGO, AND FAR AWAY
NEITHER OF US KNEW MUCH ABOUT LOVE
BUT FAITH IN GOD PROVIDED TO BE ALL WE'D EVER NEED
TO HELP US WALK THIS LIFE WE'VE COME TO LIVE

IT'S BEEN THE RIDE OF A LIFETIME, NO EIGHT SECOND RODEO
THERE'S BEEN NO ONE ON EARTH I'D RATHER RIDE WITH
WE'VE SHARED THIS AWESOME JOURNEY ALL TOGETHER ALL THE WAY
HATS ON TIGHT, MEASURE RIGHT
THE RIDE OF A LIFETIME TO BE SURE

AT TIMES I THOUGHT WE'D LOST IT ALL
I WONDERED WHAT WE'D DONE
AT TIMES WE RODE THE SADDLE, FLYIN HIGH
BUT NOW I LOOK BACK ON THE LIFE WE CHOSE TO LIVE EACH DAY
I WOULDN'T HAVE IT ANY OTHER WAY

(Chorus)

STORY AFTER STORY COULD BE TOLD OF WHERE WE'VE BEEN
STILL MORE COULD BE TOLD, HOW FAR WE'VE COME
STILL THE GREATEST STORY IS ABOUT TO BE REVEALED
I CAN'T WAIT TO SEE IT COME ABOUT

(Chorus)

I SIGNED UP FOR THIS RIDE THROUGH LIFE
DOWN THIS NARROW TRAIL
I MEANT EVERY WORD THAT I HAD VOWED
WE'VE FACED A COUPLE OF UPS AND DOWNS
ALONG THE NARROW WAY
BUT THE TROPHY IS THIS LOVE WE SHARE TODAY

(Chorus)

WHEN I LOOK BACK ON THE LIFE WE CHOSE TO LIVE EACH DAY
I WOULDN'T HAVE IT ANY OTHER WAY
NO, I WOULDN'T HAVE IT ANY OTHER WAY

about

Trevor Toews Edmonton, Alberta

I was raised in the beautiful town of Virden, Manitoba.
I love Jesus and pretty much everything country.
It is my prayer that these songs will draw you closer to Jesus. :)
I am always looking forward to opportunities to minister in music as well.
If you would be so kind, please consider giving a 1 - 10 indicator here or on Facebook to help me decide which songs I should consider for an album.
