Subject: Lyr Add: I WISH I WAS EIGHTEEN AGAIN (Throckmorton
From: Jim Dixon
Date: 23 Apr 10 - 12:56 AM

I WISH I WAS EIGHTEEN AGAIN
(Sonny Throckmorton)

At a bar down in Dallas an old man chimed in
And I thought he was out of his head.
Just being a young man, I just laughed it off
When I heard what that old man had said.

He said, "I'll never again turn the young ladies heads
Or go running off into the wind.
I'm three-quarters home from the start to the end,
And I wish I was eighteen again.

"I wish I was eighteen again,
And going where I've never been,
But old folks and old oaks
Standing tall just pretend.
I wish I was eighteen again.

"Now time turns the pages and, oh, life goes so fast.
The years turn the black hair all grey.
I talked to some young folks. Hey, they don't understand
The words this old man's got to say.

"I wish I was eighteen again,
And going where I've never been,
But old folks and old oaks
Standing tall, just pretend.
I wish I was eighteen again.

"Lord, I wish I was eighteen again!"

[Recorded by George Burns, Tom Jones, Jerry Lee Lewis, and a few others.]
