The Statler Brothers – I Was There lyrics

When she bought her first heels I was there
When she combed those last pigtails from her hair
When she wore her sister's dress to the prom I must confess
When the last dance was danced I was there
When I first fell in love she was there I can still remember when and where
But life gives and takes and we all have our breaks
When she broke her first heart I was there

When she walked down the aisle I was there
When she took the vows to always love and care
With dignity and grace I quietly took my place
With the friends of the bride I was there
When they had their first fight and she called in the night
Though I knew it wasn't right I was there
And when he left her again and she needed a friend
Like a fool I've always been I was there
The last time we met he was there and whatever he thinks I don't care
I loved her first and he loved her worst I know she told me so when I was there
I know she told me so when I was there
