GLORY DAYS

Live 12 Jul 1984 version


[Spoken intro:] And then, and then... Let's rock! Take it easy now, boys! Alright. Is there a guy named Carl out there tonight? I don't know, the guy with the sign that says "Are you loose?" on it. There it is. I got your letter, it's upside down now (chuckles). I got your letter.. This is for all the old-timers. Anybody who seen us when we played at the bomb scare (chuckles) show. What a wonderful night (chuckles). Oh man, this is especially for anybody who's, who's, who's over 30 out there? (cheers) Woah! Anybody over 40 out there? (cheers) Oh man! Alright. That's old (chuckles). Almost as old as Clarence. But Clarence still looks good (cheers).

Well now,
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 his

Glory days
Yeah they'll pass you by, glory days
In the wink of a young girl's eye, glory days
Glory days

Now there's this girl, well she lives up the block, back in school she could turn all the boys' heads
Sometimes on a Friday I'll stop by, have a few drinks but after she put her kids to bed
Well her and her husband Bobby, well, they split up, I, 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

Glory days
Yeah they'll pass you by, glory days
In the wink of a young girl's eye, glory days
Glory days

Alright, let's rock it now boys!
Whoa!

Think I'm going down to the well tonight and I'm gonna drink till I get my fill
Well I hope when I get old I don't sit around thinking about it, yeah but I probably will
I'm just sitting back trying to recapture a little of the glory of
Well but time slips away and leaves you with nothing mister but boring stories of

Glory days
Yeah they'll pass you by, glory days
In the wink of a young girl's eye, glory days
Glory days
Yeah they'll pass you by, glory days
In the wink of a young girl's eye, glory days
Glory days

Alright!
Alright!
Oh yeah!
Alright!

Come on now!
(Oh yeah)
Alright!
(Alright)
Come on boys! (Oh yeah)
Oh keep on rockin' now! (Oh yeah)

Oh yeah! (Oh yeah)

Ah everybody's gonna get old
