My wife was complaining that she didn't look like she did when we first were married. That was the inspiration for this song. It came together quickly, and I was able to record it in time to give it to her for Christmas. Hope you enjoy.

I used Country 90's Ballad at a tempo of 72 with live guitar and vocal added.

And by the time you get to 46 years, like us, the sentiment will remain. She's still the beauty I met in 1965 and wed in '66.
Wonderful sentiment - every word is true.
I hope your wife enjoyed the Song - WE did!
cheers
Ian

Brian...

This is the first time we've listened to you. What a great song! I'll bet your wife loved it...we sure did. Nice chord arrangement, particularly on the chorus. That was a great listen!

We're working on one with a similar theme called "Not A Day Past Lovely". It's been on the back burner for a couple of months but might bring to the front after listening to this fabulous song.

Very, very nice...we truly enjoyed it! Best to you...

Al & Di

Thanks to everyone for your kind comments! I'm particularly happy with this song because it came together so rapidly. Song writing doesn't come easily to me. I usually struggle months between songs. I wrote this in less than a day, had the BIAB tracks together in a few days, and the final mix done within two weeks of the inspiration.
