Story

July 10th of this year, 2015, my wife and I celebrated our thirty-ninth wedding anniversary at our home on San Juan Island. As I was in the process of writing songs for a new album of things that are important to me in my life, I wrote a song about being our life together for 39 years. I wrote the song in July, recorded it in October and my wife didn't hear the song until I played it for her on her birthday while in New York mixing the album in November. Her response..."cute, why'd it have to be country." I guess she's a little bit rock and roll.

 

Lyrics

Thirty-Nine Years

Words and Music by Michael Stosic © 2015

 

When I got out of school my life was pretty scary till

I met a pretty girl and she said why don’t we marry.

I thought about it saying are you sure that’s necessary.

Now we’ve been married thirty-nine years.

 

Thirty-nine years of fussing and a fighting.

Thirty-nine years of wronging and a righting.

Thirty-nine years of loving and delighting.

We’ve been married thirty-nine years.

 

We lost our first baby but we had three others.

Blessed with a son and two lovely daughters.

Raised them best we could like fish out of water.

We’ve been married thirty-nine years.

 

Thirty-nine years of fussing and a fighting.

Thirty-nine years of wronging and a righting.

Thirty-nine years of loving and delighting.

We’ve been married thirty-nine years.

 

Well we sit by our pond drink coffee every morning.

Share the newspaper read a story that is boring.

Say a few words get up and leave without a warning.

We’ve been married thirty-nine years.

 

Thirty-nine years of fussing and a fighting.

Thirty-nine years of wronging and a righting.

Thirty-nine years of loving and delighting.

We’ve been married thirty-nine years.

 

As I look back now life’s been good I have to say.

We have a house in Reno and one on Mitchell Bay.

Two grandbabies and maybe more someday.

We’ve been married thirty-nine years.

 

Thirty-nine years of fussing and a fighting.

Thirty-nine years of wronging and a righting.

Thirty-nine years of loving and delighting.

We’ve been married thirty-nine years.
