Billy Joe Shaver – Long In The Tooth lyrics

Long in the tooth, long in the tooth
Tryna tell ya I'm long in the tooth
Well, you still do all night what
It takes all night to do

But the whipping folk don't complain
Cause they still have the younger man's brain
I still do more than most men do
I'm telling you winners I'm long in the tooth

(Chorus)
Long in the tooth
Long in the tooth
I'm telling you folks I'm long in the tooth
I used to go barehunh with a switch
Sleep all week while staying a-witch
I put that grip lil ova my knee
And I'm not the man I used to be

(Verse 2)
Long in the tooth, long in the tooth
I'm telling you telling I'm long in the tooth
I had an alligator kiss my ass
It's mostly luck he's runnin' that fast

Show not behaving a tooth
I'm on an alligator I eat an alligator
Yes you

(Chorus)
Long in the tooth
Long in the tooth
I'm telling you children I'm long in the tooth
Throwin' that football across the mall
We've all led it with a certified smile
I used to be so wild and free
Sometimes I wonder what happened to me

(Interlude)
Long in the tooth, long in the tooth
I'm telling you children I'm long in the tooth
Long in the tooth, long in the tooth
I'm telling you woman I'm long in the tooth

(Instrumental break)

(Verse 3)
Time did a number on me, I ain't the man I used to be
Running at speed but I'm little at motion
Live up to all them stories been told

(Interlude x2)
Long in the tooth, long in the tooth
I'm telling you children I'm long in the tooth
Long in the tooth, long in the tooth
I'm telling you woman I'm long in the tooth
Long in the tooth, long in the tooth
I'm telling you children I'm long in the tooth
Long in the tooth, long in the tooth
I'm telling you folk I'm long in the tooth
Long in the tooth, long in the tooth
Long in the tooth, long in the tooth
Long in the tooth, long in the tooth
Long in the tooth, long in the tooth
