Youth

youth

The easy road was easy

We took the easy road

We had no plan to harvest

Wild random oats we sowed

 

A ready bunch of lads we were

Friendship was our creed

Style was our only banner

A true heart and God speed.

 

But the road of life , it tears you

Rips innocence away

And leaves a scar of wisdom

By which our debts are paid

 

For the easy road ain’t easy

It’s a hard road in the end

No man passes by unscathed

Or a woman,  or a friend.

 

A curse then on this wisdom

Take me back unto that day

I heard an army laughing

Marching to the fray

 

And at the front the finest

The very best of men

And me not far behind them

How goes that song, again?
