    Lyrics

    young kid steps in from the cold
    he ordered up a drink
    he says don't look surprised old man
    I'm older than you think
    if I was the talking kind
    I could tell you a thing or two
    and since you didn't ask
    let me show you my tattoos

    he said I got this rose in memphis
    in some back old alley dump
    picked this eagle up in dallas
    man I sure was good and drunk
    and you know the way I see it
    if it gets any worse out there
    a guy like me hasn't got a prayer

    the old man poured some coffee
    he said this one's on me
    set down his cigarette
    and rolled up his sleeve
    said take a good look here my friend
    do you see what these are
    just my ragged old and jagged old and faded scars

    he said I got this one in paris
    in a war 'fore you were born
    and this one when I was half your age
    working on my daddy's farm
    and u know the way I see it
    son you ain't what I seen
    'cause tattoos and scars are different things

    he said I've been here for all these years
    and what I know is this
    if you look and listen close a man will show you what he is
    and you know the way i see it
    you've been 'round, but you're still green
    'cause tattoos and scars are different things

    young kid steps in from the cold
    orders up a drink
    he said don't look surprised old man
    i'm older than you think
