Tom T. Hall — Back When We Were Young lyrics

Back when we were young everybody came to see us
Everybody wanted to be us back when we were young
We loved each other so all our friends told one another
And we even told each other back when we were young

It was laughin' it was dancin' it was cigarettes and bourbon play with kisses
It was alligator shoes and new blue suits and anything that money wishes
It was sittin' up all night and waitin' for the dawn to bring another wondrous day
It was holding hands and thinking that tomorrow is a million years away
Back when we were young...

It was rolling seventh of a time and thinking it was never ever gonna end
Back then we even thought of time itself as being something as a passing friend
It was buyin' one another things we didn't need and birthdays were so corny
Back then we even had some friends live as far away as California
Back when we were young
