Them Days

from The Lost Album by Donny Brazile




Superman and Batman Elvis Presley and the president
Anything seemed possible with possible exception of disappointment
Mama always told me I can do what I set my mind to
Now mama doesn’t lie but I don’t know why she never told me the truth

I guess I had my fun
I had to let it end
Them days are gone
Never find ‘em again

Dreamin’ of the day and schemin’ up a way I could try to make a dime
So I broke up the band and loaded up the van and headed out for the state line
Now the livin’ is grand in Hollywoodland with a guitar in my hand
But I’ll be damned and I can’t understand why it didn’t turn out like I planned

Indian summer and the leaves on the trees
Orange and red and they fall to the ground
Every time I see that ol’ house on your street
My ol’ heart starts to pound

Well I never really thought about givin’ it up but I’m a-thinkin’ about it now
25 years gone by and I still haven’t figured it out
Did I invest too much or not ingest enough will I ever shut-up me and my big mouth
Now I’m beggin’ for forgiveness for too much monkey business but I can’t get off of the couch

Them days
