Lyrics
New Year's Day
© 2014 Greg Lambert

He arrived early Saturday
On a stormy night
By the light of a flashing neon sign
Amid the fireworks and pouring rain
New Year's Day

His dad was recovering, mostly stayed in bed
Momma found some part time work as a maid
Hopes were high as they dreamed about what lay ahead
New Year's Day
New Year's Day

Chorus
He was born on New Year's Day
In the back seat of a car
The nearest hospital was too far
Tears of joy and cries of pain in that old Chevrolet
New Year's Day
New Year's Day

Bridge

All the diamonds and all the gold
People stash away
Can't compare to what the future holds
On this New Year's Day

He arrived early Saturday
On a stormy night
Mom and Dad thanked God for their new life
So much joy and happiness in this tiny gift of faith
New Year's Day
