My darling, come to me, sit you down easily,
And rest awhile near the soft fire light,
cold is the night;
But warm is my heart with pride,
having you by my side,
You're still my guiding light after a-all these years.

Your soft assuring ways, the rock I lean on,
Saw me through my darkest days,
when all hope had go-o-one;
You're still the only one I'll ever hold near,
And I love you, after a-all these years.

Time from me passes on, and I'm growing old,
A lifetime nearly gone,
I cannot unfold nights dark and cold;
But warm is your hand in mine,
feeble with aimless time,
The light of love still shines, after a-all these years.

Your soft assuring ways, the rock I lean on,
Saw me through my darkest days,
when all hope had go-o-one;
You're still the only one, I'll ever hold near,
And I love you, after a-all these years.
I love you, after a-all these years.

From About Ollie Kennedy by Danny Murray ©2004: In 1982, Ollie joined Foster and Allen as part of their backing group and toured extensively with them. Indeed, this was a union which was beneficial to all parties as Ollie co-wrote one of their biggest hits - After All These Years. This song has been recorded by a number of other artists including Charley Pride.
