Alan Jackson – The Firefly’s Song lyrics

I used to run in a young man’s boots

With a young man’s heart

And a young man’s roots

But now I stand where a young man stood before

I don’t run like I used to

This old man don’t run no more

You used to talk

And I used to nod

I don’t listen

But I hear a lot

Don’t believe for a second

That my key won’t fit your door

I don’t wantcha like I used to

This old man wants you more

Hey hidee ho

I used to go where the devil wouldn’t go

Where the river run still

And the water don’t flow

Heaven couldn’t stop me then

Hey

Hidee hi

Good lord willin

And the creek don’t rise

And life goes by

Like the fireflies

Where the devil sits with a grin

I used to sing with a young man’s voice

A young man’s heart

And a young man’s choice

Hope my song is what you’re longing for

I don’t sing like I used to

Sometimes less is more

Hey hidee ho

I used to go where the devil wouldn’t go

Where the river run still

And the water don’t flow

Heaven couldn’t stop me then

Hey

Hidee hi

Good lord willin

And the creek don’t rise

And life goes by

Like the fireflies

Where the devil sits with a grin

Well this crazy life is all we got

Like a shoestring tied in a beggar’s knot

In the end that’s what this story shows

I don’t love you like I used to

This old man loves you more

I don’t love ya like a used to

This old man loves you more
