  1. once i was seven years old, my mama told me,
    "go make yourself some friends or you'll be lonely."
    once i was seven years old

    it was a big big world, but we thought we were bigger
    pushing each other to the limits, we were learning quicker
    by eleven smoking herb and drinking burning liquor
    never rich so we were out to make that steady figure

    once i was eleven years old. my daddy told me,
    "go get yourself a wife or you'll be lonely."
    once i was eleven years old

    i always had that dream like my daddy before me
    so i started writing songs, i started writing stories
    something about that glory,
    just always seemed to bore me
    'cause only those i really love will ever really know me

    once i was twenty years old.
    my story got told
    before the morning sun, when life was lonely
    once i was twenty years old

    (lukas graham!)

    i only see my goals, i don't believe in failure
    'cause i know the smallest voices. they can make it major
    i got my boys with me at least those in favor
    and if we don't meet before i leave, i hope i'll see you later

    once i was twenty years old.
    my story got told
    i was writing about everything i saw before me
    once i was twenty years old

    soon we'll be thirty years old,
    our songs have been sold
    we've traveled around the world and we're still roaming
    soon we'll be thirty years old

    i'm still learning about life
    my woman brought children for me
    so i can sing them all my songs
    and i can tell them stories
    most of my boys are with me
    some are still out seeking glory
    and some i had to leave behind
    my brother i'm still sorry

    soon i'll be sixty years old, my daddy got sixty-one
    remember life and then your life becomes a better one
    i made a man so happy when i wrote a letter once
    i hope my children come and visit once or twice a month

    [2x]
    soon i'll be sixty years old,
    will i think the world is cold
    or will i have a lot of children who can warm me?
    soon i'll be sixty years old

    once i was seven years old, my mama told me,
    "go make yourself some friends or you'll be lonely."
