"Old Before My Time" as written by and Gregory Lenoir Allman Warren Haynes....
There is a long hard road follows for behind me
It's so cold I’m about to die
Chasing a dream around the world it's got me feeling down
Though it use to make me high

Looking for answers searching for the truth
In an ocean of lies
Trying to find a reason to make the hole thing right
Will make you old before your time

When I was younger, I thought I ruled the world
It was an oyster at my feet
Dancing to my own drum, fishing out the pearl
Yes I would have been much more discreet

I've lived a lifetime, acting out apart
It's been a long uphill climb
now all the things that use to mean so much to me
Has made me old before my time

Wondering aimlessly, wondering down
Would it ever be much different now
Remind me of the past, I slip into a dream
Funny things ain't never what they seem

Living like children, never doing what we are told
Would not hesitate to take to take a chance
That road behind me now was paved with fool’s gold
It's almost time for the victory dance

No more feeling guilty, for things I never did
Feeling nothing for my crime
Living like a gypsy, dreaming like a kid
It makes me old before my time

There is a long hard road, it lies so far behind me

    General CommentThere is a long hard road that winds so far behind me,
    Its so cold I’m about to die,
    Chasing a dream around the world
    Has got me feeling down
    Though it use to make me high
    Looking for answers searching for the truth,
    In an ocean of lies.
    trying to find a reason to make the whole thing rhyme,
    will make you old before your time


    When I was younger,
    I thought I ruled the world ,
    It was an oyster at my feet,
    *Dancing to my own drum,*
    fishing out the pearl
    wish I could have been much more discreet
    I've lived a lifetime,
    *acting out a part,
    Its been a long uphill climb,
    now all the things that use to mean so much to me
    Have made me old before my time,*
    Chorus:
    Wondering aimlessly,wondering aloud,
    could it ever be much different now,
    Remind me of the past,
    I slip into a dream,
    *funny things ain`t never what they seem,*

    Solo:

    Living like children,
    never doing what we are told ,
    Would not hesitate to take a chance,
    That Road behind me now was paved with fool’s gold,
    Its almost time for the victory dance,
    *No more feeling guilty,
    for things I never did,
    feeling nothing for my crime,*
    Living like a gypsy,
    *dreaming like a kid,
    Has made me old before my time…*

    There is a long hard Road, it lies so far behind me…
