I remember it all started in 1929
When me and Diana came to Alaska
To homestead some of this free government land

Forty miles from the nearest gravel road
We cut our life in the Ponderosa pines
We sweated hard to beat the winter snow
But the cabin's up and we've got lots of times

What have you got planned tonight, Diana
Would you consider laying in my arms
I love you more than ever now, Diana
I'm sure you're the reason I was born

Jim was born the first year we were here
Look at him, my God he's almost grown
And the baby's in the cradle fast asleep
Just think in no time they'll be up and gone

What have you got planned tonight, Diana
Would you consider laying in my arms
I love you more than ever now, Diana
I'm sure you're the reason I was born

Well, time sure does fly, doesn't it Diana
It's been almost two years now since, since you've been gone
Speaking of time, I guess you know that mines about up
I'm gonna see you tonight, just another breath or two
And I'll be home

By the way
What have you got planned tonight, Diana
Would you consider laying in my arms
I love you more than ever now, Diana
I'm sure you're the reason I was born
