Billy Dean – Young Man lyrics

Mama cries Son, don't leave town
Find a girl and settle down
Well I hate to break her heart
But that's not in the cards while I'm a young man

She says I could find a job
In the fields or on the docks
But I've always had a dream
To see all I can see while I'm a young man

When I'm just an old man on a front porch in a chair
Rocking with the memories from my past
The lines you see on my face should tell a tale of no regrets
I want to look forward to looking back on the race I ran
When I was a young man

I want to see those seven seas
Climb the highest mountain peak
Make it my career
To make the most of every year while I'm a young man

Daddy says young man
I know you have to stand on your own you can't sit at home
He says I understand, once I had big plans like you
I was a young man too

(Repeat chorus)

Mama please understand
I'm just a young man
I'm just a young man
