I wake up one morning and it's passed you by
You don't know when and you don't know why
I feel like an old memory hangin' round
And man, we've got to face it, it's a young man's town

I knew this day was comin' all along
Some why ***** an' moan and say they done you wrong
Just teach 'em what you know and pass it on down
'Cause man, you gotta face it, it's a young man's town

It's a young man's town
Full of young man's dreams
And all God's children gotta learn to spread their wings
And sometimes you gotta stand back
And watch 'em burn it to the ground
Even though you built it, it's a young man's town

You always seem to be the last to know
Man, that's just the way that the story goes
There's nothin' you can do when the fields have turned brown
An' man, you gotta face it, it's a young man's town

It's a young man's town
Full of young man's dreams
And all God's children gotta learn to spread their wings
And sometimes you gotta stand back
And watch 'em burn it to the ground
Even though you built it, it's a young man's town

Sometimes you gotta stand back
And watch 'em burn it to the ground
Even though you built it, it's a young man's town

It's a young man's town
