about

This is an introspective rock song about looking back on all the times I visited Gettysburg: Once as a child with my father, once as a young man with my fiancee, and once as a father with my own son. Tear.

lyrics

Tennessee's fine but Kentucky's preferred
A double straight up and not to be
Disturbed
When I first came here I was
Was just a lad
Down In Gettysburg just me
Me and my dad

Then the days didn't seem short
No problems or bills to sort
And the nights lasted all day
A man of the ages would say

Some years had passed when I
I had returned
With my fiancée to old Gettysburg
Walked passed the toy shop I
I used to go
No longer the boy that I
I used to know

But the days, weren't that short
Minimal problems to sort
And the nights lasted all day
A man of the ages would say

That the days, they're growing short
Filled with more problems to sort
And the nights feel like the days
A man of the ages would say

Now I'm a Dad with 2 kids of my own
Made some money bought a house and took a loan
I brought my son back to old Gettysburg
Swallowed two bourbons and Wrote down these words

That the days, they're growing short
Filled with more problems to sort
And the nights feel like the days
A man of the ages would say
