Tom T. Hall — I'm Forty Now lyrics

There were barefoot dreams of catching outlaws
There were school dreams of catching footballs
There were young dreams of finding great romance
There were armies and I took the chance
There were avenues of glory and some deep despair
That put subtle shapes of silver in my hair
Well I'm forty now and I'm a man but I can't resist the urge to put dreams in my plans
So many hopeless dreams and I broke some vows
Maybe life begins for me I'm forty now

There were summer nights and there were good days life was water and I made waves
Oh I was crazy then so I made some breaks maybe God can look the other way
Either good outweighs the bad or we forget the bad
I'm thankful for a few friends that I've had
Cause I'm forty now and I'm a man...
Well I'm forty now
