** "Cat's in the Cradle." The narrator's son goes from young childhood, through college years, then to his own adulthood, over the various verses. An [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TibB_VWa9uA alternative interpretation]] of the song uses UsefulNotes/TheTroubles as a backdrop. Hard-hitting, but it [[SomeAnvilsNeedToBeDropped makes its point]].
** Also "Dreams Go By". A [[LyricalDissonance happy little tune]] about the narrator and his SO always putting off their dreams until they feel they're too old to dream anymore.
** Also "She's Always Seventeen" (The story of a woman who lives through 1961-1975, but retains the spirit of a 17 year old), "The Rock" (The story of a man who spends his whole life trying to avert a disaster), "Basic Protest Song" (13, 20, 30) and "I Don't Want To Be President" (baby, child, college grad, congressman, president)

* "The War Was in Color" by Carbon Leaf is a gut-wrenching example/possible subversion. The song covers the narrator from his time in the war as a teenager, to adulthood then old age, as told to his grandson (who found an old photo, hence the reason for the telling of the story). Turns out [[spoiler:it's all a hallucination, as the narrator is dying on the battlefield, which means neither [[CriticalExistenceFailure he, the photo, nor the grandson actually exist]] at the time the story would be getting told.]]

* Bryan White's "Rebecca Lynn" (2nd grade, high school, young adult)

to:

* Bryan White's "Rebecca Lynn" (2nd (second grade, high school, young adult)adult)
* Leroy Van Dyke's classic "Auctioneer." Originally a hit in 1957 [[note]]with just simple instrumentation (the original Dot Records version is forgotten; virtually all classic country stations that play "Auctioneer" play one of his 1960s or 1970s re-recordings)[[/note]], the song is about a man's progression from school-aged boy to master auctioneer. It begins with him as that young boy, spending his school days traveling to farm auctions and the local sale barn; he is mesmerized by the auctioneer's prattle, engagement of the audience, quickness in raising bids and other skills. Resolved to be just like the auctioneers he's heard, he spends his days and nights practicing the auction chant and calling skills, continuing as he grows into his teen-aged years and near adulthood. Not wanting him to be mediocre, but sensing tremendous potential in the lad, his father agrees to send him to auctioneering school ... where the boy eventually becomes the best in all the land and becomes wealthy from his engagements; in fact, he has to buy a private plane to get around because he is in such high demand.
* Music/GeorgeStrait: "Check Yes Or No," his 1995 No. 1 hit that begins with an elementary school classroom crush on a girl named Emmylou, his resolving to marry her one day, and their marriage and 20 years of being together.
