Allman, Gregg - These Days Lyrics

Well I've been out walking
I don't do that much talking these days
These days, these days I seem to think a lot
About the things I forgot to do, for you
And all the times I had a chance to

Well I've had a lover
I don't think I'll risk another these days
These days, these days I seem to be afraid
Live the life that I've made in song
But it's just that I have been losing, so long

These days I sit on the corner stone
Count the time in quarter tones of ten, my friend
And now I believe I want to see myself again

These days I sit on the corner stone
Count the time in quarter tones till ten, my friend
Please don't confront me with my failure
I'm aware of them

    Carl Walker

    I really hope so.

  16. drlepper72

    A piece of a lot of childhoods passed when he left us. The fact that we have the music to admire for all time is proof there is a benevolent god up in heaven.

    David Gaskin

    He's still a part of those childhoods. You listen to this song.. there he is.

  17. Roger Wilson

  29. Vicky Wheeler

    Love Greg Allman! Thanks!

  30. icscsuma10 02

    I can't decide between Greg Allman
    Jackson Browne or glen Campbell
    They versions all make me bawl like a wee kiddie
    Go well Gregory

  31. Sherry Woodruff

    With deepest Gratitude for your music. I feel it in my Soul. Rest in Paradise.

  32. Alma Texier

    It’s my mantra

  33. Micah Gourley

    Beautiful tribute :') 👍👍 Great reflection on what matters most in the trek of life. Personally, I think of Micah 6:8 which, in summary, poses the question of what God wants from us, and it's that we " justice [doing what is right], desire mercy..." (that we not "confront [them] with [their] failures" but see people with redemptive eyes, if necessary, only calling out those blind spots they can't realize they have in order to better them), and "...walk humbly WITH God." -for He is the perfect manifestation of humility, though many may misrepresent Him. 🙏👍

    "He has told you, O man, what is good;
    And what does the Lord require of you
    Except to be just, and to love [and to diligently practice] kindness (compassion),
    And to walk humbly with your God [setting aside any overblown sense of importance or self-righteousness]?" Micah 6:8 Amplified Bible (AMP)

  34. Elaine

    Greg you are sorely missed.😎

  45. Helen Johns

    😔😢😭😇🙏. This man influenced my life so much. Had older brothers to lead me to the classics that stand the test of time. Even tho they were brand new. Best band ever. Love and respect

  46. Madeleine

    Have to thank Jackson Browne, a fellow military brat for writing this song when he was 16. That said, I don't think his version can best Greggs.

  47. nobody, the

    He didn't write it but he still owns it.

  48. Kesley Cottrell

    God l miss The Allman Brothers Band concerts. Doesn't seem like summer. RIP Gregg. Thanks for the awesome music.

  49. col-t-walters

    The last line is..... PLEASE DONT CONFRONT ME WITH MY FAILURES, IAM AWARE OF THEM...… in other words don't tell me were I am going... "rong"... I know the problem tell me the SOLUTION and stand by me, that is a true friend not just a complainer... LOVE LIFE LOVE PEOPLE

  50. col-t-walters

    Jackson Brown may have wrote this song and at the time would have had no idea he wrote it for Greg to sing, but its "Greg's song" he makes us believe the heart break, the reality and the emotion of our own life. THANK YOU JACKSON THANK YOU GREG.

  51. mark price

    I think Laid Back was the best music collectively Gregg put out. Great writing, great backing band--everything just clicked.

  52. Charlie Sochko

    For me.... there will never be another voice that Comforts my soul the way Gregg Allman did !!

  53. Carol Taylor

    Jackson Browne wrote this when he was 17 years old. How is this even possible!? Such great insights from someone so young is beyond remarkable.

  54. Conner Autry

    RIP Gregg. We miss you

  55. Cheryl Nave

    what a gift he was to the world

    Well I've been out walking
    I don't do that much talking these days
    These days
    These days I seem to think a lot
    About the things that I forgot to do
    For you
    And all the times I had the chance to
    Well I had a lover
    I don't think I'll risk another these days
    These days
    These days I seem to be afraid
    To live the life that I have made in song
    But it's just that I have been losing
    For so long
    These days I sit on cornerstones
    Count the time in quarter tones 'till ten
    My friend
    And now I believe I've come
    To see myself again
    These days I sit on cornerstones 
    Count the time in quarter tones 'till ten
    My friend
    Please don't confront me with my failure
    I'm aware of it

    I wish it would have been me

  92. Fran Andrews

    I was fortunate enough to see him in Concert a couple of years ago. He left us too soon. One of my favorites.

    Tracy Porter

    I lived in Nashville and got to meet with and hang out with him. One of the best nights ever, he walked in this bar that was popular for it's live music and he came in, played and hung out. Pretty awesome.
