7. When My Years Are Stacked (3:27)
Words & music by Loretta Hagen
I bore no children
Just never had them
And I am too dang old
To plan on any now
I've been thinking
About my golden years
And who will be there
To help me get around

When my years are stacked to the heavens
I'm afraid that I'll be alone
No goodbyes,no tear drops in someone's eyes
When mine forever close

I have a husband
But he is older
I don't know if he is going to outlive me
And if he's here still,
He'll be no help
As it is I do
Everything for him

I have a family, sisters and brother
But they have other responsibilities
Some have children, even grand ones
They were thinking right
When they were married
