I WISH I WAS EIGHTEEN AGAIN (Sonny Throckmorton) Jerry Lee Lewis - 1979 George Burns - 1980 Slim Whitman - 1991 Flat Duo Jets - 1995 Ray Price - 1999 Also recorded by: Tom Jones; Frankie Yankovic. At a bar down in Dallas an old man chimed in And I thought he was out of his his head Just being a young man, I just laughed it off When I heard what that old man had said He said I'll never again turn the young ladies heads Or go running off into the wind I'm three quarters home from the start to the end And I wish I was eighteen again I wish I was eighteen again And going where I've never been But old folks and old oaks Standing tall just pretend I wish I was eighteen again Now time turns the pages and oh, life goes so fast The years turn the black hair all grey I talked to some young folks, hey they don't understand The words this old man's got to say I wish I was eighteen again And going where I've never been But old folks and old oaks Standing tall just pretend I wish I was eighteen again Lord, I wish I was eighteen again! **************************** As recorded by SLIM WHITMAN: In a park down in Dallas an old man chimed in And I thought he was out of his his head And being a young guy, I just laughed it off When I heard what that old man had said He said I'll never again turn the young ladies heads Or go running off into the wind I'm three quarters home from the start to the end And I wish I was eighteen again Oh, I wish I was eighteen again 'Cause I'm going where I've never been Old folks and old oaks standing tall just pretend And I wish I was eighteen again Time turns the pages, the years how they fly The dark hair has all turned to grey I talk to some kids, but they don't understand The words that I've got to say I wish I was eighteen again 'Cause I'm going where I've never been Old folks and old oaks standing tall just pretend And I wish I was eighteen again I'm three quarters home from the start to the end And I wish I was eighteen again (Transcribed by Mel Priddle - March 2006) *****************************
