BRUCE SPRINGSTEEN lyrics : "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 $$#embly 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

[Chorus (repeat twice)]
