Building forts on Willow Creek, ten years old playing hide and seek.
Finding ways to pass the time
A hammer, nail some two by fours. Couldn’t wait ‘til we done our chores
Then out the door we would fly

Just some kids being kids, doing what mom and daddy did
Not twenty years before
Only living for the day, the only way we knew
Wild eyed, fast and free.
Ride your bike to the corner store, check the flyer on the front door
That old dog is lost again
Through the fence around the back, put your pennies on the tracks
And watch the trains roll on

Then came gasoline and girls, four wheels to take you ‘round the world
‘til you dug those pockets clean
Swing by to pick her up at eight, home by ten. Don’t’ be late.
Her old man would always say
