Paycheck, Johnny - I Grow Old Too Fast (And Smart Too Slow) Lyrics



Well I grew old too fast and smart way too slow
Woke up this morning had nowhere left to go
I know every rock and every curve in life's old road
'Cause I grew old too fast and smart way too slow

Yes I woke up this morning what did I see
Nothing but a shell of what I used to be
Now comes the harvest of seeds old Jolly Stone
I let my age slip upon me but if I'd been looking Lord I'da known

I'd grow old too fast and smart too slow
Woke up this morning had nowhere left to go
I know every curve every rock in life's old road
'Cause I grew old too fast and smart too damn slow

I grew old too fast and smart way too slow
Woke up this morning had nowhere left to go
I know every rock and every curve in life's old road
'Cause I grew old too fast and smart way too slow
Yes, I grew old too fast and smart way too slow
