That's the Way It Was
by Richard Harris



That’s the way it was

There once was a town where a boy could have a dog
There weren’t any subways and there wasn’t any smog
And the green things grow as green things will
You could hear the grass grow if you stood real still
And the honey bees would buzz
You may not believe it
But that’s the way it was

There once was a town where I grew to be a man
And when I grew I grew just as tall as I could stand
The green things grew on my own good land
They’d called me by my name and they always shook my hand
And the honey bees would buzz
You may not believe it
But that’s the way it was

There once was a town in the one I’m thinking of
A man could find a woman and a man could fall in love
And a man could have a boy and a boy could have a dog
Where there weren’t any subways and there wasn’t any smog
You may not believe it
But that’s the way it was
