The old stuff Lyrics

The old stuff by Garth Brooks  

CD  ·  DVD  ·  Sheet music


The old stuff Oh I said a little prayer tonight 
Before I came on stage 
As I came walkin' past the drivers and the locals on the union wage 
I asked the dear Lord up in heaven 
Let me treat the music right 
Then I prayed that Detroit 
Goes wild tonight 

Seven pickers and all our gear in a rental van 
Playin' music never sleepin' and workin' on a neon tan 
We played The Barn down in Sanford Florida 
For Bev Roberts out in Camden Park 
We plugged it in up east at Bull Run and the place went dark 

Back when the old stuff was new 
Back before the buses and the hard workin' boys in the crew 
It was one big party 
But the business called it payin' our dues 
Back when the old stuff was new 

Oh the stories we could tell 
If it weren't for the code of the road 
About The Buckboard, Bear Creek, Cowboys, and the Grizzly Rose 
You know the weather turned bad in Scottsdale 
A tornado nearly stole the show 
We just danced in the rain and listened to the thunder roll 

Back when the old stuff was new 
Hats off to the K.C. Opry and ella GURU'S 
It was one big party 
Uncle Joe you know we owe it to you 
Back when the old stuff was new 

No rules young fools comin' from the old school 
Takin' on the world alone 
Next date can't wait tearin' up the interstate 
Every place we played was home 
Balls out no doubt this is what it's all about 
Beggin' for a place to play 
Swingin' with our old friends 
Prayin' that it never ends 
Wouldn't trade a single day 

Back when the old stuff was new 
Back before the buses and the hard workin' boys in the crew 
It was one big party 
But the paper's called it payin' our dues 
Back when the old stuff was new 

Hey it's still one big party 
You can call it whatever you choose 
You make me feel like the old stuff is new
