Young And Sober Lyrics

In the year of '55 When I was but a child I felt the Lord settle on my shoulder Now through those childish days He will guide my guileless ways Where I was young and I was sober

And in the year of '65 A troubled life and troubled times And the Lord was standing on my shoulder And I wished that life was other Or that I could be another But I was me and I was young and sober

And in the year of '75 Was when I sang myself alive And the Lord sat whistling on my shoulder So I stood up and I said And that's when my life began And I was young and sober

And in the year of '85 We watched a million starve and die And the Lord perched like the vulture on my shoulder So we sent some bread and water Tried our best to stop the slaughter And we were young and sober

But in the year of '95 I loved my faithless wife And the Devil must have muttered on her shoulder For she left me for another Whom I once had thought my brother And I grew drunk and older

Set in the year of '05 With a beautiful new wife And the Lord just sat there smiling on our shoulders So we drank from lifer's cup Watched our children growing up For she had made me once again young and sober

For I was young and sober
