The Allman Brothers Band Old Before My Time Lyrics

Last updated: 08/27/2009 12:00:00 PM


There is a long hard Road that winds so far behind me,
Its so cold I’m about to die,
Chasing a dream around the world
Has got me feeling down
Though it use to make me high
Looking for answers searching for the truth,
In an ocean of lies.
trying to find a reason to make the whole thing rhyme,
will make you old before your time

When I was younger,
I thought I ruled the world ,
It was an oyster at my feet,
Dancing to my own drum,
fishing out the pearl
wish I could have been much more discreet
I've lived a lifetime,
acting out a part,
Its been a long uphill climb,
now all the things that use to mean so much to me
Have made me old before my time,
Wondering aimlessly,wondering aloud,
could it ever be much different now,
Remind me of the past,
I slip into a dream,
funny things ain`t never what they seem,


Living like children,
never doing what we are told ,
Would not hesitate to take a chance,
That Road behind me now was paved with fool’s gold,
Its almost time for the victory dance,
No more feeling guilty,
for things I never did,
feeling nothing for my crime ,
Living like a gypsy ,
dreaming like a kid,
Has made me old before my time…

There is a long hard Road, it lies so far behind me…
