  1. Chance He Had by Korah Winn

Lyrics

Verse 1:

He spent his whole life workin’ in a factory
It wasn’t clean or easy
He did it anyway.
His daddy taught him how to work real hard
He raised a family and got a union card
He did it all the way

Chorus 1:

Now I ain’t sayin’ you can’t lose your dreams
Workin’ up in tall buildings
But that wasn’t a choice that he ever had.
So he, put in lots of overtime
Saved… all his nickels and all his dimes
And he… remained a husband and a dad.

Verse 2:

Now after workin’ hard for over 23 years
It’s hard to rest, or even change gears
It happened this a way.
His high school love said “It’s time to part.”
He watched his son grow distant... his daughter depart
He nearly lost his way.

Chorus 2:

Now I ain’t sayin’ you can’t lose your dreams
Workin’ up in tall buildings
But that wasn’t a choice that he ever had.
So he… put in less overtime
Spent… all his nickels and all his dimes
And… wept for the wife that he once had.

Verse 3:

Just like the river life keeps rollin’ on
It causes changes and keeps us pushin’ on
He found a new way.
He met a nice gal and he started to heal
He showed his kids that he loved them for real
He made a new way.

Chorus 3:

Now I ain’t sayin’ you can’t lose your dreams
Workin’ up in tall buildings
But that isn’t a choice that he has.
So he… puts in a little overtime
Spends… a couple nickels and all his dimes
And he… thanks God for this life and all he has.
