Song Meaning
Verse 1
I had a friend was a big baseball player
Back in high school
He could throw that speedball by you
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 was
Verse 2
Glory days well they'll pass you by
Glory days in the wink of a young girl's eye
Glory days, glory days
Verse 3
Well there's a girl that lives up the block
Back in school she could turn all the boy's 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
Verse 4
Glory days well they'll pass you by
Glory days in the wink of a young girl's eye
Glory days, glory days
Verse 5
Think I'm going down to the well tonight
And I'm going to drink till I get my fill
And 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
Verse 6
Glory days yeah they'll pass you by
Glory days in the wink of a young girl's eye
Glory days, glory days
Verse 7
Yeah they'll pass you by
Glory days in the wink of a young girl's eye
Glory days, glory days
