Someday When I'm Old

Album: Easton Corbin (2010)
  • Someday when I'm old
    I'll pull up to the store
    And park wherever the hell I want to
    I'll buy a box of Moon Pies
    And flirt with the cashier
    Yeah, like I was still twenty-two

    I'll bitch about eighteen dollars for a
    Gallon of gas
    Down at the Texaco
    Someday when I'm old

    Yeah, someday when I'm old
    I'll keep chewing gum in my front pocket
    And cold Dr. Pepper in the fridge
    I'll let my daughter get mad
    Say I'm ruining their supper
    When I give that stuff to my grandkids

    And I realize that some things,
    They just don't matter
    And how fast it all goes
    Someday when I'm old

    That clock just starts ticking
    Oh, the day that you're born
    And no matter how much time you get
    You always want more

    Someday when I'm old
    I'll be the only one
    Who remembers you young and beautiful
    Your dark hair falling on that pillowcase
    All the secrets we shared, all the
    Love that we made

    And I'll hold onto those precious moments
    Like pieces of gold
