Ringo Starr – After All These Years lyrics

By Richard Starkey and Johnny Warman


WE DIDN'T HAVE THE TIME TO THINK THINGS OVER,
WE HAD A LOT OF FUN, WE HAD SOME TEARS.
STEPPING OUT OF LONELINESS,
NOW THE ROAD DON'T SEEM SO LONG,
AFTER ALL THESE YEARS.

ROCK AND ROLL HAS GOT A REPUTATION,
BAD BOYS CAUSE A LOT OF FEAR.
BUT I NEVER MEANT TO REALLY HURT YOU, OH NO, NO,
AFTER ALL THESE YEARS.

TRAVELLING THE WORLD IN A ROCK AND ROLL BAND,
IT'S IN MY BLOOD, IT'S IN MY BLOOD.
OOH, BUT YOU KNOW, IT'S GOOD TO BE BACK HOME.
DANCING WITH YOUR SISTER ON A SATURDAY NIGHT,
IT'S UNDERSTOOD, IT'S UNDERSTOOD.
WHEN EV'RY BOY AND GIRL,
OOH, WAS ROCKING ALL OVER THE WORLD.

AFTER ALL THESE YEARS.

TRAVELLING THE WORLD IN A ROCK AND ROLL BAND,
IT'S IN MY BLOOD, IT'S IN MY BLOOD.
OOH, BUT YOU KNOW, IT'S GOOD TO BE BACK HOME.
DANCING WITH YOUR SISTER ON A SATURDAY NIGHT,
IT'S UNDERSTOOD, IT'S UNDERSTOOD.
WHEN EV'RY BOY AND GIRL,
OOH, WAS ROCKING ALL OVER THE WORLD.

WE DIDN'T HAVE THE TIME TO THINK THINGS OVER,
WE HAD A LOT OF FUN, WE HAD SOME TEARS.
STEPPING OUT OF LONELINESS,
NOW THE ROAD DON'T SEEM SO LONG, LONG, LONG, LONG, LONG,
AFTER ALL THESE YEARS,
AFTER ALL THESE YEARS,
AFTER ALL THESE YEARS,
AFTER ALL THESE YEARS.
