about

This song id dedicated to my Daddy Earl. He spent 14 months in a German prison camp after being shot down and having to parachute from a B-24 in WWII. Before going overseas, he had met and fell in love with my mother Marie at a USO dance club. All he dreamed about in that lonely and desperate prison camp is in this song

lyrics

All I Ever Wanted By RLC Jan 14 2014

He was a simple man , with a loving wife
They didn't have much money to buy the finer things in life
He told me son the car that you drive and the clothes that you wear
don't make you who you are

His country Club membership was at the local Y
The family vacations were spent camping underneath the clear blue sky
He believed that the holidays didn't need a season and he had his reasons

I can still hear him say
don't get me anything for Christmas,
Iv'e got everything I need, every day is like Thanksgiving
with all the blessings that I've received

All I ever wanted was a house that I could call my Own
All I ever needed was a loving wife and you kids
so we could make , so we could make this house a home
You are all I Ever wanted Please listen when I say
You are all I ever wanted
For me it's like Christmas ever day

All I ever wanted was a house that I could call my Own
All I ever needed was a loving wife and you kids
so we could make , so we could make this house a home
You are all I Ever wanted Please listen when I say
You are all I ever wanted
For me it's like Christmas ever day
