[VERSE 1]

A different time in a far away place
Born into bad news, a smile on my face
Was wild an crazy like a caged dog freed
Ain’t nothing like being young, broke and naive

I was driving my Chevy, steady, my foot feeling heavy
Ready for whatever life goes and throws my way
In motels I was sleeping, eating in diners and leaving
Little ladies with broken hearts all down the highway

And it’s hazy baby I can’t remember the names
Ah man it’s crazy baby when you think about the good old days
(Days, days)

[Chorus]

I was free and I was young
But It’s been a long road from 21
Tryna survive here in the U.S.A
Till them good ol’ boys come and take me away

I said, no I won’t
Go and settle down
I said, no I won’t
I don’t think that I can settle down

[VERSE 2]

In a Charleston bar I met an angry old man
He sang the blues and told me all about Vietnam
He said, “Hey son, you’re lucky just to be alive”
“Cuz these days there really ain’t no place to hide”

So I’m running, I’m riding, I’m rocking, rolling, I’m flying
I’m making up for lost timin’ and I’m just finding myself
I was young and in love and I didn’t know who to trust
Hopped on that greyhound bus, man it was hotter than hell

And it’s crazy baby to think about the things we can’t change
Ah man it’s hazy baby, when you think about the good old days
(Days, days)

[Chorus]

I was free and I was young
But It’s been a long road from 21
Tryna survive here in the U.S.A
Till them good ol’ boys come and take me away

I said, no I won’t
Go and settle down
I said, no I won’t
I don’t think that I can settle down

[Chorus]

I was free and I was young
But It’s been a long road from 21
Tryna survive here in the U.S.A
Till them good ol’ boys come and take me away

I said, no I won’t
Go and settle down
I said, no momma I won’t
I don’t think that I can settle down
