GLORY DAYS

Live 10 May 1988 version


[Spoken intro:] Alright now! This is for all you old suckers out there.

Whoa!

Well
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
Yeah 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, she lives up the block, back in school she could turn all the boys' heads
Sometimes on a Friday I'll stop by and have a few drinks with her after she put her kids to bed
Her and her husband Bobby, well they split up, must be, twenty 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

Somebody ??? so rich, get wild out there!

Well I think I'm going down to the well tonight and I'm gonna drink till I get my fill
Hope when I get old I don't sit around thinking about it, but I know that I will
Yeah 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
They'll pass you by, glory days
In the wink of a young girl's eye, glory days
Glory days
They'll pass you by, glory days
In the wink of a young girl's eye, glory days
Glory days

Well alright!
Oh yeah!
Well alright!
Come on now!
Well alright!
Oh yeah!
??? everybody?
Is the people ready?
You suckers in the dam seats there
Get that ??? down there, you guys ??? in the back over here man
Now here we go!
Whoa oh o-oh! (crowd: Whoa oh o-oh)
Whoa oh o-oh! (crowd: Whoa oh o-oh)
Whoa oh o-oh! (crowd: Whoa oh o-oh)
Whoa oh o-oh! (crowd: Whoa oh o-oh)
Blow that thing!
