The Firefly's Song Lyrics

Artist: Alan Jackson
Album: Like Red on a Rose

The Firefly's Song

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 ol' man don't run no more

You used to talk and I used to not
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 want you like I used to
This ol' man wants you more

Chorus

Hey hidey-ho..., I used to go where the devil
Wouldn't go
Where the river runs still and the water don't flow
Heaven couldn't stop me then
Hey-ho... good Lord willin'
And the crick don't rise
Life goes by like the firefly's
When 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
I hope my song is what you're longing for
I don't sing like I used to
Sometimes less is more

Repeat Chorus

Hey hidey-ho..., I used to go where the devil
Wouldn't go
Where the river runs still and the water don't flow
Heaven couldn't stop me then
Hey-ho... good Lord willin'
And the crick don't rise
Life goes by like the firefly's
When 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
I hope my song is what you're longing for
I don't sing like I used to
Sometimes less is more

This crazy life is all we got
Like a shoestring tied in a beggar's knot
And in the end that's what this story shows
I don't love you like I used to...
This ol' man loves you more
I don't love you like I used to...
This ol' man loves you more.
