Old Times Good Times

  • When I was young and needed my time alone
    Jump in the Pirogue, pole down the Bayou
    Bogue Falaya River was dark and cold
    Seven years old, I couldn't find my way home

    Old times, good times
    Old times, good times

    When I was twelve, I learned how to play the guitar
    Got myself a job in a jax beer bar
    Got myself together, went to New Orleans
    Found myself workin' for rice and beans
    And it was good times

    Old times, good times
    Old times, good times

    New York city was so damned cold
    I had to get out of that town before I got old
    California and rock and roll dream
    Got too high and we blew our whole scene
    But we had a good time

    Old times, good times
    Old times, good times

    Old times, good times
    Old times, good times Writer/s: Stephen Stills
