Old 97's - Longer than you've been alive

We’ve been doin’ this longer
Than you’ve been alive
Propelled by some mysterious dry
And they still let me do it as weird as it seems

And I do it most nights
Then again in my dreams
Entering always giant hotels
Dressing not as good as it smells

Bottles of whisky
Bottles of beer
There’s a bottle of medecin
Somewhere round here

And we’be been in nightclubs
And we’ve been in bars…
Most of our shows were a triumph of rock
Although in some nights I might have to check in the clock

I’m only human
Though I’m super at times
I would jump up a…
I should not climb

But save me dad
Cause that’s what he does
We got our shares and we pass
Somewhere the last

It must be hard to get partner with me
Love is a marathon
Sometimes with puke


Speaking of witch
That was alcohol
Now is the weed
A hand full of pills

And a heart struck that kills
We’ve been longer than
You’ve been alive
Twenty good years,for about 25

The open roads is the only place I wanna be
Rockin’ roll is very good for me
The open roads is the only place I wanna be

Both this stuff should be kept confidential
You should know the truth
Before the blast and the core

Oh,you know you do it
'Cause it’s money you do
And I pay my living and shaking my ass
And if you offer me an office
I have to pass

I love what I do
And I got a pretty good luck

Get on the bar
And try

Rockin’ roll is very good for me
The open roads is the only place I wanna be
Rockin’ roll is very good for me
The open roads is the only place I wanna be
Rockin’ roll is very good for me
The open roads is the only place I wanna be
I said : The open roads is the only place I wanna be
