You'll Never Be This Young Again - Written by Ellis Paul Recorded Live September 11, 2021 McGonigel's Mucky Duck | Home of the Livest Music in Texas™ Become a supporting member at: https://livefromnorfolkstreet.com/ Lyrics: I met a walkin’ man His life fit in his pockets His thumb was in mid-air On a road in Millinocket A six string guitar And his girlfriend’s locket Going my way, My way For a dream He left the mills, He left the bricks He left the mortar I told him I could take him To the Massachusetts’ border He sang like a jukebox On an endless roll of quarters Down the highway On a bright, lit, Summer day (Chorus) Oh, You’ll never be this young again The train conductor’s Calling your ticket And If it ain’t now, Then when? The mountain top Ain’t gonna wait forever Fill your lungs with oxygen And take your first step Breathe out, Breathe in, You’ll never be this young again An old friend said, “Ellis, I’ve been living in a cubicle Making cold calls Popping pharmaceuticals I thought my whole my life Would read more like a musical” So write your own West Side Story Shake off the shackles Buy a tackle box a boat A cabin on Sebago To think, To float When the typewriter’s clackin’ The novel gets wrote I’m telling you now No risk, No glory You only get so many heartbeats You only get so many first kisses So sweet Dreams don’t come easy And they don’t come cheap Don’t let the haters Kick them out of you, Out of you
