• How did I catch your brown eyes?
    How did I get your heart beating with mine?
    It's something I never quite understood
    Well I guess I must've tricked you good
    Well must've done something in another life, right

    When I'm gone, my name carved in stone
    And that dash between the years, is all I left here
    It won't be songs and stages I sang on
    Girl, as hall of fame as I wanna be
    A lifetime you loving me, hell that's a legacy

    You're in everything coming off these strings
    Baby you're the lead, I'm just the harmony
    Behind every great man they say
    There's a woman that made him that way
    Looking at you girl it ain't hard to see, that

    When I'm gone, my name carved in stone
    And that dash between the years, is all I left here
    It won't be songs and stages I sang on
    Girl, as hall of fame as I wanna be
    A lifetime you loving me, hell that's a legacy

    When I'm gone, my name carved in stone
    Over husband, friend and father
    Survived by son, wife and daughter
    It won't be songs that keep me living on
    Girl, as hall of fame as I wanna be
    It's a lot of love and a little family tree
    Hell that's, a legacy Writer/s: JAREN JOHNSTON, LAURA VELTZ, BEN BURGESS
