Ricky Van Shelton & Dolly Parton – Rockin’ Years Lyrics

I’ll do everything I can
To make you proud to be my man
And I’ll fulfill all you fantasies
I guess we’re promising a lot
But for now it’s all we’ve got
And I’ll stand by you through our rockin’ years

1st Chorus:
Rockin’ chairs, rockin’ babies, rock-a-bye, rock of ages
Side by side we’ll be together always
And if you’ll hold me tight when you love me
That’s all I’ll ask of you
And I’ll stand by you through our rockin’ years

I’ll be your friend, I’ll be your lover
Until the end, there’ll be no other
‘Cause my heart has only room for one
Yes, I’ll always love you
And I’ll always be here for you
And I’ll stand by you through our rockin’ years

Rockin’ chairs, rockin’ babies, rock-a-bye, rock of ages
Side by side we’ll be together always
And if you’ll hold me tight when you love me
That’s all I’ll ask of you
And I’ll stand by you through our rockin’ years

Rockin’ chairs, rockin’ babies, rock-a-bye, rock of ages
Side by side, we’ll be together always
And, yes, I’ll always love you and I’ll always be here for you
And I’ll stand by you through our rockin’ years, and I’ll be here
And I’ll stand by you through our rockin’ years

Through our rockin’ years
