  • 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
