Dean Brody - Trail In Life Lyrics

It was a May full moon
We parked the car
And I sang you a song I wrote on my guitar
Oh I have kissed
Many times since then
But that first one is special
One you don't forget
If I had asked you then you probably took my ring
But time and distance have a way
Of changing things

And sometimes I wonder
What it would have been like
If we had wandered
The same path in life
Tonight if you're out there
Looking up at the same moon
Girl I hope
That your trail in life
Has been good to you

College days
Frat house nights
You were more than just a bunch of rowdy friends of mine
You made leaving home
Not as hard to bare
Yeah we swore we'd stick together
Till we were in rocking chairs
But we all kind of scattered
Getting our lives in gear
The phone calls went from weeks to months
To I ain't heard in years

And sometimes I wonder
What it would have been like
If we had wandered
The same paths in life
Would we still smoke cigars?
Yeah when the wild cats beat OU
Oh friend I hope that your trail in life
Has been good to you

The day I was born
They said you cried
When you signed those papers
And kissed me good-bye
To young to know
How to raise me up
So you let me go and start this world in a house of love
I was 12 years old when daddy sat me down
And told me of a brave young girl
That I should know about

And sometimes I wonder
What it would have been like
If we had wondered
The same path in life
I think I would make you proud
Of the boy you never knew
God I hope
That your trail in life
Has been good to you
And some day I know
This old trail in life
Will wind back to you

  12. Tabea McGrath

    Why he doesn't have more listeners and fans is surprising to me. Such a beautiful voice and thoughtful lyrics.

    Salma official

    Tabea McGrath I’m Best Dean Brody listener...

  13. JoeDoakes1015

    Country radio needs more songs like this and less crap like anything by Florida Georgia Line.  Dean Brody is such an amazing artist.

  14. Laura Anker

    Being adopted myself.... this song brought me to tears the first time and still does ...Thank you for capturing it so beautifully Dean .... Wawa

  15. Janet Shutt

    Today is my son's 12th birthday. This song brought tears to my eyes...gratitude for the trails in my life that lead us to him 11.5 years ago all the way from Korea. Touching song for those who have been blessed by adoption.

  16. matthew osterhoudt

    such a great heart touching song

  17. lilgirlfrumhicktown

    haha i was just about to dislike ur comment, then i saw brothers, and was like...:) k, they aren't crazy! :O

  18. CantStayAway

    This is my favorite Dean Brody song...I don't really like any of his other ones, except for "Brothers".:)

  19. Holly

    Can't wait to see him live with my boyfriend in February <3

  20. Emiasis

    I dont even listen to country music and i stumbled upon this song at my shop a while ago and i found it to be one of the most beautiful songs ive ever heard. Thanks Dean :)

  21. tayorpound14

    i have to say i absolutely adore dean, his song Wildflower pretty much changed my entire perspective on myself.

  22. Gary Linger

    America is not the be all to end all to country music though it is treated as such. We may have started the genre but I find that both Canada and Australia have some better artist than we do. Of coarse an artist is not really said to have truly made it until they get air play here in the states. That is a joke. Nashville is a joke and far too many deserving of getting noticed here in the US are overlooked. Such a shame. You Canadians have some artist to be very proud of.

  23. cowgirlinup

    me too =(

  24. Craving Crashy

    <3 Dean Brody can explain so much within his music.

  25. Aria Hale

  31. punkerella45

    Being a birth parent and having given my son up for adoption was the hardest choice to have made. Once I heard this song I had to actually pull my car over and break down in tears, knowing his brithday has come and passed again I can only hope his trail is happy. Thank you Dean
