    Bruce Springsteen ~ Glory Days
    Lyrics

    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...

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

    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.

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

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

    To fade.

    The good ol' days were just as bad as today, we were just too dumb to realize it.

      Totally agree with that!

      However, yours truly is scheduled to be homeless soon. Kind of gives me a new slant...

        I'm biding my time and budget as well but I won't go down without a good fight. I still have a modecum of hope in 'something will turn up soon'.
