lyrics

I used to be an older man
Oh god when did i get so young
I had a tremor in both hands
and ashes in my lungs

Is that my daughter speaking
I’d like to talk to my son
They tell me i’ve been dreaming
My life has just begun

But i once was a man
I once was a father
And i could cook you dinner like no other

In our house in the country
With a pocket full of dollars
And you couldn’t have been a better mother

I was older then
Back when i was your man

I caught myself looking for
Those old boots beside my door
That you gave me
In a place so far away

They were all worn in
The sole was getting thin
And full of holes
But i loved them anyway

Where are you now my darling
Do the children know i’m gone
Can you hear my singing
Or did i only know you in a song

But I once was a man
I once was a father
And i could cook you dinner like no other

In our house in the country
With a pocket full of dollars
And you couldn’t have been a better mother

I was older then
Back when i was your man

(interlude)

I once was a man
I once was a father
And i could cook you dinner like no other

In our house in the country
With a pocket full of dollars
And you couldn’t have been a better mother

I was older then
Back when i was your man
