"Wishing All These Old Things Were New" Lyrics

Merle Haggard

Watching while some old friends do a line
Holding back the want to end my own addicted mind
Wishin' it was still the thing even I could do
Wishin' all these old things were new.

Watching while some young men go to jail
And they show it all on TV just to see somebody fail
And I guess there's not a single thing a man like me can do
Wishin' all these old things were new.

Wishin' all these old things were new
Good times like the roaring 20's and the roaring 80's too
Thinking about the good old days before it all fell through
Wishin' all these old things were new.

--- Instrumental ---

The kids don't want my cigarettes around
They say it's time that dad should lay tobacco down
But if I could start all over guess I'd still do what I do
Wishin' all these old things were new.

Wishin' all these old things were new
Good times like the roaring 20's and the roaring 80's too
Thinking about the good old days before it all fell through
Wishin' all these old things were new.

Wishin' all these old things were new...
