Lyrics

One day last spring when the weather was good
I was strolling though my neighborhood
Saw this old man setting up a yard sale sign
He said, "It's all stuff that I can't use
Make me an offer I can't refuse
On that Airstream sitting in the drive"
I said, "Mister, she's a beaut. Why let her go?"
He took a big deep breath and cleared his throat, said

We were gonna see the world, we were gonna do it all
Old Faithful out in Yellowstone, New England in the fall
We were gonna see the world, me and her in that old RV
Now I just can't bear to drive beside her empty seat
Aw, but she can see enough for both of us
And I bet the view is better from above

Well, he turned away, so I wouldn't see
The tears rolling down his cheeks
But I saw 'em and said, "I'm sorry for your loss"
He said, "We worked hard our whole lives
Waiting for the day we could retire
And then just like that, she was gone
So I'll give you a real good deal on that stack of maps
I ain't gonna need 'em, I can tell you that"

We were gonna see the world, we were gonna do it all
The Grand Canyon and the Great Salt Lake and Niagara Falls
We were gonna see the world, me and her in that old RV
Now I just can't bear to drive beside her empty seat
Aw, but she can see enough for both of us
And I bet the view is better from above

Then he smiled and said "Now don't go feeling sorry for me son
'Cause the good Lord has a plan, and my traveling days ain't done."

One day, we're gonna see the world, yeah, we're gonna see it all
Mt. Everest and the pyramids, the North Pole and that old Great Wall
Oh, we 're gonna see the world, me and her, we'll be hand in hand
And if you've traveled much, I'm sure you'll understand
It's sweeter when you're with the one you love
And I bet the view is better from above
