You Just Aint Lived

By Country Lyrics Store
Well have you ever seen the early buds of spring
Or heard the distant peels of country church bells ring
Have you ever seen a double rainbow…what a sight
Or myriad stars twinkling in the black of night
Have you ever seen a mother’s doting smile
As she cradles in her arms her newborn child.

If you can’t say yes to all these wondrous things
Well you ain’t lived…You just ain’t lived.

Well have you ever seen a swallow way up high
As it swoops across the early summer sky.
Have you ever heard the birdsong in the trees
Or seen the busyness of blossom’s honey bees.
Have you ever seen a newborn baby’s smile
Or heard the first words of that infant child.

If you can’t say yes to all these wondrous things
Well you ain’t lived…You just ain’t lived.

Well have you ever seen the dying leaves in fall
With many copper shades…too beautiful to call
Have you ever heard the birds’ migration tune
Or seen their silhouette upon the harvest moon
Have you ever seen a daughter’s lovely smile
As she sets off for her first date dressed in style.

If you can’t say yes to all these wondrous things
Well you ain’t lived…You just ain’t lived.

Well have you ever seen a winter’s snow white layer
Or heard a congregation’s holy midnight prayer
Have you ever heard the young ones shriek with glee
As they scatter wrappings underneath the Christmas tree
Have you ever seen a grandma’s knowing smile
As she looks back on a lifetime so worthwhile.

If you can’t say yes to all these wondrous things
Well you ain’t lived…You just ain’t lived.

Have you ever had such beauty by your side
Or ever been a man like me…so full of pride
Have you ever heard such words of love expressed
As she rests her weary head upon your chest
Have you ever had a loving wife like this
Who still bestows on me a tender daily kiss.

If you can’t say yes to all these wondrous things
Well you ain’t lived…You just ain’t lived.

When you have reached the twilight of your years
Can you look back upon a lifetime without tears.
Are you a man who’s known true love’s eternal flame
Will loved ones smile at the mention of your name
Can you face the pearly gates without regret
Knowing those you’ve left behind will not forget.

If you can’t say yes to all these wondrous things
Well you ain’t lived…You just ain’t lived.

If you can’t say yes to all these wondrous things
Well you ain’t lived…You just ain’t lived.
