    "Old Before My Time" Lyrics

    The Allman Brothers Band

    There is a long hard road follows for behind me
    It's so cold I'm about to die
    Chasing a dream around the world it's got me feeling down
    Though it use to make me high

    Looking for answers searching for the truth
    In an ocean of lies
    Trying to find a reason to make the hole thing right
    Will make you old before your time

    When I was younger, I thought I ruled the world
    It was an oyster at my feet

    Dancing to my own drum, fishing out the pearl
    Yes I would have been much more discreet

    I've lived a lifetime, acting out apart
    It's been a long uphill climb
    now all the things that use to mean so much to me
    Has made me old before my time

    Wondering aimlessly, wondering down
    Would it ever be much different now
    Remind me of the past, I slip into a dream
    Funny things ain't never what they seem

    Living like children, never doing what we are told
    Would not hesitate to take to take a chance
    That road behind me now was paved with fool's gold
    It's almost time for the victory dance

    No more feeling guilty, for things I never did
    Feeling nothing for my crime
    Living like a gypsy, dreaming like a kid
    It makes me old before my time

    There is a long hard road, it lies so far behind me
