Our House, Our Town

by Cynthia Carr & The Carrtunes

Genre: Folk/Acoustic


It will be a place for friends to rest from roaming
There’ll be hooks for their caps and coats to be hung
A place for our babies to start their growing
Wherever that time, Lullabies are sung
In our house

And in the evening, we’ll sit on our front porch dreaming
Letting our eyes grow heavy Watching the stars tumble down
In our house, In our town

We’ll build our house on dreams and love
And fill it with memories
Of song and laughter, Gentleness
And the hard times that every life brings
To our house

But every new day I see, I’m gonna thank the good Lord
For sending you to me, I can’t see growing older without you by my side
In our house, In our town

I want to live beside you, Grow beside you
Want to be your old woman, with you, my old man
I want the years to pass so slowly
Leaving their mark as soft as they can
In our house

And when our living days are done, I want to pass this old house Onto some younger ones
Who will feel the loving memories we have left behind
In our house, In our town
In our house, In our town
