Jim Croce – Careful Man lyrics

I don't gamble, I don't fight
I don't be hangin' in the bars at night

Yeah I used to be a fighter but

Now I am a wiser man

I don't drink much, I don't smoke

I don't be hardly mess around with no dope

Yeah I used to be a problem but

Now I am a careful man

Chorus:
But if you used to want to see a commotion

You shoulda seen the man that I used to be
I was trouble in perpetual motion

Trouble with a capital "T"

Stayin' out late, havin' fun
And shot off every single shot in my gun

Yeah I used to be a lover but
Now I'm an older man

Chorus

But if you used to want to see a commotion
You shoulda seen the man that I used to be

I was trouble in perpetual motion

Trouble with a capital "T"
Stayin' out late, havin' fun

And shot off every single shot in my gun
Yeah I used to be a terror but

Now I am a tired man

Yeah I used to be a terror but

Now I am a tired man
