Kris Kristofferson - Same Old Song Lyrics




I was just a young man
Working steady in a good time band
Pickin' every single little lick I could
Just to please the man
Harlan sang the lead for half
And we split up the rest
Hangin' on through the heavy times
And hopin' for the best

And I can't recall the names of all
Them places that we played in
All them squirrely party girls
And pills we used to pop
Hardly ever sleepin' in
Those cheap motels we stayed in
Hopin' we could take it 'til we'd make it to the top

[Chorus:]
And them nights, get a little bit brighter
And them bars just a little bit better
And the sweet, just a little bit sweeter
But them blues, well it's still the same old song

Now we're stars and shining on
Them prime time t.v. shows
Every stranger knows our name
And every little where we go
Findin' out the bottom ain't so different
From the top
Just a few more friends that you'll be losin'
When you drop

And I've left some of my soul on
Every sweaty sheet that I could sleep on
Gettin' just as close to any body as I could
I don't regret a single bed I've laid my body down on
Ever since the first I had
The worst I had was good

[Chorus:]
And them nights, get a little bit brighter
And them bars just a little bit better
And the sweet, just a little bit sweeter
But them blues, well it's still the same old song

  1. Francis Morgan

    Listen to the words in every song and you'll realize that he is one of the greatest philosophers that ever lived

  2. Charlie Wallace

    "Ever since the first I had, the worst I had was good." Man, Kris was a hell of a wordsmith.

  3. Grant Parisian

    This was his first commercial failure and ironically his best album.

  4. Glenda Whiteside

    Thanks for sharing. I liked it. I'm a huge Kris fan. Going to see him in concert in Oct. Seeing him for the third time. I just love this man.
