listen video  "Proud Of The House We Built" by Brooks & Dunn (Ronnie Dunn/Marv Green/Terry McBride)

1st Verse

I dropped to my knees
In that field on your daddy's farm
Asked you to marry me
All I had to give was my heart
While other kids were divin' in the swimmin' holes
You and me dove off into the great unknown

2nd Verse

We were barely gettin' by
Takin' care of each other
When I became a daddy
You became a mother
Was an uphill battle nearly every day
Lookin' back I wouldn't have it any other way


I'm proud of the house we built
It's stronger than sticks, stones, and steel
(It's) not a big place
Sittin' up high on some hill
A lotta things'll come and go
But love never will
(Oh) I'm proud
(Oh) (Yeah) I'm proud of the house we built

3rd Verse

Still workin' our way
Through the land of milk and honey
At the end of the day
There's always more bills than money
I close my eyes at night and I still feel
The same fire in my heart I felt out in that field

(Repeat Chorus)


Oh, look at us today
Whoa, we've come such a long, long way

(Chorus Out)
