When I was a boy, I had everything
I had silver and gold
I sailed ships with the cowboys
And I'd never grow old

And my father was strong
And my mother was young
Fell asleep in the backseat
'Till we got home

(chorus)
Pick me up take me back where I belong
'Cause I don't know, anymore
I want to go home

And the sea was my country
And the fields were my den
And I'd sail a thousand ships
To get back again

Tell me when did I grow old
Tell me where can I go
To run in the tall grass
And lay in the snow

(repeat chorus)

Where are the railroad tracks
Where are the summers I used to know

When I was a boy, I had everything
I had silver and gold
