7 Years - Lyrics

Once I was seven years old
My momma 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 thought we were bigger
Pushing each other to the limits
We were learning quicker
Buy eleven smoking herb
And drinking burning liquor
Never rich so we were right to make the 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 the glory
Just always seemed to bore me
Cause only those I really love
Will ever really know me

Once I was twenty years old
Story got told
Before the morning sun
When life was lonely
Once I was twenty years old

(Once I was seven)
(seven years old)
(seven years old)
(seven years old)

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
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
Some I had to leave behind
My brother I'm still sorry

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)
(seven years)
(seven years)
