Same Old Song
I was just a young man Working steady in a good time band Pickin' every single little lick I could Just to please the man Harlan sang the lead for half And we split up the rest Hangin' on through the heavy times And hopin' for the best And I can't recall the names of all Them places that we played in All them squirrely party girls And pills we used to pop Hardly ever sleepin' in Those cheap motels we stayed in Hopin' we could take it 'til we'd make it to the top [Chorus:] And them nights, get a little bit brighter And them bars just a little bit better And the sweet, just a little bit sweeter But them blues, well it's still the same old song Now we're stars and shining on Them prime time T.V. shows Every stranger knows our name And every little where we go Findin' out the bottom ain't so different From the top Just a few more friends that you'll be losin' When you drop And I've left some of my soul on Every sweaty sheet that I could sleep on Gettin' just as close to any body as I could I don't regret a single bed I've laid my body down on Ever since the first I had The worst I had was good [Chorus]
