"Glory Days"

I had a friend was a big baseball player 
back in high school 
He could throw that speedball by you 
Make you look like a fool boy 
Saw him the other night at this roadside bar 
I was walking in, he was walking out 
We went back inside sat down had a few drinks 
but all he kept talking about was 

Glory days well they'll pass you by 
Glory days in the wink of a young girl's eye 
Glory days, glory days 

Well there's a girl that lives up the block 
back in school she could turn all the boy's heads 
Sometimes on a Friday I'll stop by 
and have a few drinks after she put her kids to bed 
Her and her husband Bobby well they split up 
I guess it's two years gone by now 
We just sit around talking about the old times, 
she says when she feels like crying 
she starts laughing thinking about 

My old man worked 20 years on the line 
and they let him go 
Now everywhere he goes out looking for work 
they just tell him that he's too old 
I was 9 nine years old and he was working at the 
Metuchen Ford plant assembly line 
Now he just sits on a stool down at the Legion hall 
but I can tell what's on his mind 

Glory days yeah goin back 
Glory days aw he ain't never had 
Glory days, glory days 

Now I think I'm going down to the well tonight 
and I'm going to drink till I get my fill 
And I hope when I get old I don't sit around thinking about it 
but I probably will 
Yeah, just sitting back trying to recapture 
a little of the glory of, well time slips away 
and leaves you with nothing mister but 
boring stories of glory days 



boring stories of glory days
