Always In The Band Lyrics
(Richie McDonald/Ron Harbin/Jerry Vandiver)

High school half-time Friday night
Standing on the fifty-yard line
With a big ol' red and gold tuba in my hands
I could see Katie Anne in the popcorn line
Couldn't see how to make her mine
I was always in the band.

At eighteen I found a cheap guitar
Became Seger and Willie in a smokey bar
Bared my soul behind a rusty old mike stand
I'd get her name and number on my second break
Watch someone dance my chance away
I was always in the band.

Sometimes this dream demands more than I can give it
But even still I don't regret a single minute, oh
To hear you laugh, to feel your pain
To see a thousand waving flames
It's just a part of me, that's who I am
I was always in the band.

Met her backstage before a show, Las Vegas rodeo
Three months later I asked her for her hand
We tied the knot on the sixth of June
Would have had a honeymoon
But I was always in the band.

Left Dallas on the way to Omaha
Around Topeka when I got the call
Baby's coming, honey get here when you can
Yeah I guess I should have turned that bus around
But I'd a let thirty thousand people down
I was always in the band.

Sometimes this dream demands more than I can give it
But even still I don't regret a single minute, oh
To hear you laugh, to feel your pain
To see a thousand waving flames
It's just a part of me, thank God she understands
I was always in the band.

I was always in the band...
