lyrics

Once You Were A Man

Once you were a man
A man of the world
You had pretty girls
In the palm of your hands
Now you look sad
So sad and alone

Once you were a man
A man of the world
You had so many things
But you gave them all away
Now you look sad
So sad and alone

Don't know what you're trying to do
Don't know what you're trying to say
There are so many people there
That have never heard you play

Once you were a man
A man of the world
You had some pretty girls
In the palm of your hands
Now you look sad
Sad and alone
