This recording was done in July 2010 at the Sound Farm outside of Nixa MO. for use as a backing track for our first video to put up on YouTube. 

Lyrics

 

Thought we were old enough,

thought we were all grown up

back in the fall of sixty-two

Stuck in a steel town,

I pushed the ore around

You were sixteen, I was twenty-two

 

We talked for days and days,

we planned our getaway

I put a ring on your left hand

Your daddy disapproved,

your momma cried for you

There was no way they’d understand

 

     We felt we had the right

     so we took off one night

     No other choice was left to choose

     Back in those younger years

     we lived without those fears

     We thought there’s nothing we can lose

 

          Younger Years,

          we knew what we wanted then

          Younger Years,

          we reached out and took it in

          Younger Years, Younger Years

 

A job was hard to find,

long unemployment lines

when we got down to our last dime

With rent due on the first,

it went from hard to worse

Don’t know how we got through those times

 

     We could have given up

     Said that we’d had enough

     Somehow we put up a good fight

     Back in those Younger Years

     we brushed away the tears

     and just held on to you and I

 

          Younger Years,

          we knew what we wanted then

          Younger Years,

          we reached out and took it in

          Younger Years, Younger Years

 

               Times are still tough and we just get by

               It’s harder now to get up and try

 

     But in those Younger Years

     before we had these fears

     Our love could always get us by

 

          Younger Years,

          we knew what we wanted then

          Younger Years,

          we reached out and took it in

          Younger Years,

          Younger Years,

          we knew what we wanted then

          Younger Years,

          we reached out and took it in

          Younger Years, Younger Years
