Bobby Bare I Was a Young Man Once Lyrics

sponsored links
I was a young man once
I ran fast, life was hit and run
I cursed the old men for what they had done
Yea, I was a young man once

Crazy love caught in the night
Left her with child by the morning light
I didn’t care what was wrong or right
Cause I was a young man once

Yea, I raised hell and I had big dreams
I made promises I could not keep
When I hurt love I cut deep
I was a young man once

I’m not a young man now
It ain’t been easy keeping vows
I still do things that ain’t allowed
But I’m not a young man now

I’m not an old man yet
But age is chasing me with much regret
I threw the dice and time won the bet
But I’m not an old man yet

Yea, I raised hell and I had big dreams
I made promises I could not keep
When I hurt love I cut deep
I was a young man once

You’re just an old man once
An old man dreams of what he wants
He wants the world to know that not too long ago
He was a young man once

I was a young man once
