Glory Days

Bruce Springsteen

I had a friend was a big baseball player back in high school
He could throw that speedball by ya, 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

   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 that 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, 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

Repeat Chorus


Think I’m going down to the well tonight and I’m going to drink till I get my fill
I hope when I get old I don’t sit around thinking about it, but I probably will

Yeah, just sitting back trying to recapture a little of the glory of
Well time slips away and leaves you with nothing mister but boring stories of

Repeat Chorus    2x
