WILLIE NELSON lyrics - A Couple More Years
WILLIE NELSON
"A Couple More Years"
(Shel Silverstein - Dennis Locorriere)

I've got a couple more years on you baby that's all
I've had more chances to fly and more places to fall
That's not that I'm wiser it's just that I've spent
More time with my back to the wall.

And I've picked up a couple more years on you baby that's all
I've walked a couple more roads than you baby that's all
And I'm tired of running while you're only learning to crawl
And you're going somewhere but I've been to somewhere
And found it was nowhere at all.

And I've picked up a couple more years on you baby that's all.

[Instrumental]

Saying goodbye girl don't ever come easy at all
But you've got to fly cause you're hearin' them young eagles call
Someday when you're older you'll smile at a man strong and tall
And say I've got a couple more years on you baby that's all.

You'll say I've got a couple more years on you baby that's all
I've had more chances to fly and more places to fall
That's not that I'm wiser it's just that I've spent
More time with my back to the wall...
