Story

I was with someone long term who ended up leaving me for a much older man. While having coffee one morning on my front porch I came up with this little dittie based on the thought that I wished I was old, so that I could meet a younger woman like her. I couldn't help but laugh at myself and I knew at that moment that I was over her. . . The Players: Joe VanAcker - Upright Bass Mark "Huggy Bear" Lavengood - Dobro

Lyrics

I once was young and handsome too, But now I'm old and oh so blue. I once was happy when I had you, But now I've got the old mans broken hearted blues. I was just a kid, you was just a babe, I promised you I'd always stay. We made big plans for our wedding day, But just like that you went away. I didn't try to reprimand, No I just cried, cause you found a new man. And he's so old he could be your dad. I admit, I don't understand. I'm a little tired, a little older too. My hair is grayer, my eyes aren't so blue. And I was just wondering if there's anything that I could do, That would make me old, old enough for you. I once was young and handsome too, But now I'm old and oh so blue. I once was happy when I had you, But now I've got the old mans broken hearted blues.
