lyrics

Used to be that I could smoke my cigarettes
Used to be that I would take what I could get
Used to be my drink would help me to forget
Used to be

Now there's mouths to feed and a song thats just not done
Just another father that doesn't spend time with his son and I've got
Responsibilities that gives me an excuse and I've got
Memories of walking in his shoes
Father and his son

Used to be that I could smoke my cigarettes
Used to be that I would take what I could get
Used to be my drink would help me to forget
Used to be

The way that he looks to me makes me feel I've done okay
Jimmy says “Papa, I wish that you would stay”
Now he's got his games to play and he's got his sister too
Used to be

Used to be that I could smoke my cigarettes
Used to be that I would take what I could get
Used to be my drink would help me to forget
Used to be
