"Go Be Young" as written by and Edwin Cole Mc Cain....
Perfumed and smoky
She swears that she knows me
She's falling down drunk again
I say she's mistaken
She's visibly shaken
Emotions all drowned in gin
She said I used to be beautiful
But now it's all gone
I let my dreams slip away from me
That's where it went wrong

Go be young, go be free
Follow your heart where it leads you
Don't end up like me

The Indian in the guardhouse used to spin me yarns
Stories of canyons and Boston in winter
And losing his family's farms
He said I've outlived my three sons, they died in three wars
I laughed and I cried while they lived and they died
And I know that they deserve more

Go be young, go be free
Follow your heart where it leads you
Don't end up like me

Perfumed and smoky
I'm falling down drunk again
I say she's mistaken
She's visibly shaken
Emotions all drowned in gin
I say I used to be powerful
But now it's all gone
I let my dreams take control of me
That's where it went wrong

Go be young, go be free
Follow your heart where it leads you
Don't end up like me

    General CommentAnother great song by Edwin.

    To me this song basically means enjoy your youth and don't grow up quicker than you have to, You're only young once--go out and have some fun in your life.

    General Commentagree with wallflower, but again, this song is written around a personal experience of edwin's. he was on tour
    and he struck up conversation with a parking lot attendant. The verses are the stories that this parking lot
    attendant shared with edwin during their conversation.
