I saw you out with another man. I was livid--Lord, I was livid
To think that another could give you love how I could give it,
Oh, I could give it.
I went cursing up and down all around this town
And I passed out down in the long weeds
By the river and dreamed of days long gone
When I was you and you were me.

Oh the fiddle did play and the crowd did sway, they took all it was givin,
Oh, it was so long ago but I still see your face just as vivid, just as vivid.
You were dancing all around with your long hair down
And you slipped and fell onto your knees,
And you took my hand, oh, that's how it all began
When I was you and you were me.

Oh, I wish you well and you just can't ever tell what a new day will be bringing,
But I know quite well its about our days I'll be singing--oh, I'll be singing,
And I hope that you rise like a red-tail flying,
Hugging up high on a warm breeze,
And I'll bury those promises that I could never keep
When I was you and you were me.
Yeah, I'll bury those days in the dirt so deep...
When I was you and you were me.

His songs are lyrical, but he knows a good hook. ... more
