A MUSICAL RETROSPECTIVE (bootleg 3cd box, T-719)

rehearsal, Rundown Studios, Santa Monica CA - 18.sep.1980  
Live, Portland OR - 3.dec.1980  

I've got a couple more years on you babe, that's all
I've had more chances to fly and more places to fall
Well, it ain't that I'm wiser, I've just spent more time with my back to the wall
And I've got a couple more years on you babe and that's all.

I've been down a couple more roads than you babe and that's all
Now I'm tired of runnin' while you're only learnin' to crawl
You're headin' somewhere, I've been that somewhere and found that it's nowhere at all
And I've picked up a couple more years on you babe and that's all.

Well saying goodbye [ don't ever come easy at all / girl, never is easy at all ]
But you're gonna fly because you [heard / you're hearin'] those youth voices call
Someday when you're older you'll smile at a man strong and tall
You say I got a couple more years on you babe, that's all.

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
Well, it ain't that I'm wiser, I've just spent more time with my back to the wall
And I've picked up a couple more years on you babe and that's all.
