SAME OLD SONGS (Kris Kristofferson) Kris Kristofferson - 1974 I was just a young man workin' steady in a goodtime band Pickin' every single little lick I could, just to please the man Harlan sang the lead for half and we split up the rest Hangin' on through the heavy times and hopin' for the best I can't recall the names of all them places that we played in All them squirrely party girls and pills we used to pop Hardly ever sleepin' in them cheap motels we stayed in Hopin' we could take it till we'd make it to the top And them nights got a little bit brighter And them bars got a little bit better And the sweet (In the sweet by and by) just a little bit sweeter But them blues, well it's still the same old song Now we're stars a-shinin' on them prime time TV shows Every stranger knows our name in every-little-where we go Findin' out the bottom ain't so diffrent from the top Just a few more friends that you'll be losin' when you drop And I left some of my soul on every sweaty sheet that I could sleep on Gettin' just as close to anybody as I could I don't regret a single bed I've laid my body down on Ever since the first I had, the worst I had was good And them nights get a little bit brighter And them bars get a little bit better And the sweet (In the sweet by and by) just a little bit sweeter But them blues, well it's still the same old song (Transcribed by Mel Priddle - May 2012)
