Golden Days (I've Been Down)

from by Union Duke





Built this old cabin, it was the summer of ‘75
Figured I would settle down
Find a woman to call my own
See how it worked out

When I was young I never got sad when the chips were down
Never missed my turn for another bump
When the bottle came around
Old habits die hard

and I said (ooh) I miss you ‘round here
(ooh) Those words left unsaid

Now my dreams are of the past
(I’ve been down)
Friends have come and gone
(I’ve been down)
Golden days won’t last forever
So find a heart and hold it fast now

This hard luck livin’ takes a toll on the eyes
Draw a man and twist his frame
Leave no room for compromise
That’s what I’ve learned

So we beat on forward ‘gainst the wind
We were born back to the past
Another season takes its turn
And the years go by


With no rock bottom there ain’t no mountaintop
There ain’t no riverbeds to ride on
I was yours and damn sure you were mine
We never took the time to work it out
