Song Meaning
Verse 1
He was born a William
But he goes by Bill
He's had some big dreams
And he has them still
Verse 2
Well her name's Samantha
Only he calls her Sam
They grew up together
Right outside Birmingham
Verse 3
'Bout halfway through college
With their heads in a whirl
He asked her will you love me always?
She said I always will
Verse 4
And they started building a house
She's still livin' there now
Verse 5
With her half-painted porch
And rusty gold ring
He only likes the beginning of things
He only likes the beginning of things
Verse 6
Now Bill's gettin' older
He ain't settled down still
He's got a daughter out of college
And she calls him Bill
Verse 7
She goes to visit her mother
Well there's good days and bad
She only recognizes her half the time
But she's always glad
Verse 8
She still recalls building a house
As if it's happenin' then
Verse 9
With her half-painted porch
And rusty gold ring
He only likes the beginning of things
He only likes the beginning of things, mm
Verse 10
Soon after daughter's last visit
Samantha passes away
The whole family surrounded her
Just the other day
Verse 11
He was the third one to get there
Just mother and daughter and Bill
She said, "Mother never blamed you
But I always will"
Verse 12
He grabs his coat and his hat
She's surprised by that
Verse 13
He's a half-painted porch
A rusty gold ring
He only likes the beginning of things
He only likes the beginning of things, ooh
Ooh
