GLORY DAYS

Live 24 Jun 1993 version


[P][Spoken intro:] Joe Ely, he's got a record out now called "Love And Danger". Enough people ain't heard it, he's great, if you can, pick it up, alright. We got a cast of thousands tonight, uh... Who's back there? (cheers) Who's back there? (cheers, Steve comes onstage) Oh, my Lord! (cheers) Alright, come on, let's do it.

Rock that thing!

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, all he kept talking about was

Glory days
They'll pass you by, glory days
In the wink of a young girl's eye, glory days
Glory days (Steven: Yeah yeah)

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 after she put her kids to bed
Her and her husband Bobby, well they split up must be, 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 (Steven: Oh yeah)

Go on Stevy!

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, Shit! I know I will
Yeah just sitting back trying to recapture a little of the glory of
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 (Steven: Oh yeah)
They'll pass you by, glory days

The 24 Jun 1993 show at Brendan Byrne Arena in East Rutherford, NJ, was the second-to-last of the World Tour 1992-1993. Billed as "A Concert To Fight Hunger", it raised money for several food banks and relief organisations in New Jersey and New York.
