Merle Haggard - Wishing All These Old Things Were New Lyrics

Watching while some old friends do a line
Holding back the want to end my own addicted mind
Wishin’ it was still the thing even I could do
Wishin’ all these old things were new

Watching while some young men go to jail
And they show it all on TV
Just to see somebody fail
And I guess there’s not a single thing a man like me can do
Wishin’ all these old things were new

Wishin’ all these old things were new
Good times like the roaring 20’s and
The roaring 80’s too
Thinking about the good old days
Before it all fell through
Wishin’ all these old things were new

The kids don’t want my cigarettes around
They say it’s time that dad should lay tobacco down
But if I could start all over guess I’d still do what I do
Wishin’ all these old things were new

Wishin’ all these old things were new
Good times like the roaring 20’s and
The roaring 80’s too
Thinking about the good old days
Before it all fell through
Wishin’ all these old things were new
Wishin’ all these old things were new
