    Spud Webb

    [Verse 1]
    I'm flippin through a book of photos
    I found my birth certificate
    A treasure trove of polaroids
    My sister she was probably six
    In this one
    Look at mom and dad
    He was still in college
    Bagging groceries full time
    Spare time odd jobbin
    Mom's basketball pic
    State champ four times
    And who's that goofy cub scout
    We won't talk about mine
    That's my granddad's flatnose Chevy van
    He taught me how to work and cuss like a man
    We were all being taught something we don't understand
    Keep your eye on the ball
    And what's the proper stance
    And every day was sunny
    Even when it rained
    Hard to tell if it's funny
    Or if it's sad how things changed
    Look at that spiked mullet
    Lines cut in the side
    And that look on my face
    Man, that's nothin but pride
    And that's me
    Atlanta Hawks number four
    Slammin that Nerf on my bedroom floor

    [Chorus]
    And it goes on and on and on and on
    I know I got the rest of my life
    But that ain't long
    As it used to be
    My, my how time flies by
    And it goes on and on and on and on
    Next thing you know
    You wonder where the years have gone
    And trying to wish it back won't work
    Who'd have thought a good memory
    Could hurt so bad

    [Verse 2]
    Look at the kid in this picture
    Wearing that Oxford and khakis
    Them penny loafers with dimes in them
    My thoughts driftin; back
    I remember feeling invincible
    The future was mine
    Ready to take on the world
    But those were simpler times
    Never a straight "A" student
    I didn't make great grades
    Three sport athlete
    I made a few great plays
    I had this black Chevy Nova
    Jacked up in the back
    With a 350 sitting on some Cragar mags
    I was a bad boy
    Definitely not the baddest
    But my confidence level
    Was on rockstar status
    Spring break at the lake
    Better yet, Panama City
    No reservations or money
    Man, let's just go, come and get me
    Now, where were you
    When Spud Webb won the dunk contest?
    I was on cloud 9
    'Cause I was just a little guy
    And I watched his 5'7 slam 10 feet, so fresh
    And knew, I couldn't be denied

    [Chorus]
    And it goes on and on and on and on
    I know I got the rest of my life
    But that ain't long
    As it used to be
    My, my how time flies by
    And it goes on and on and on and on
    Next thing you know
    You wonder where the years have gone
    And trying to wish it back won't work
    Who'd have thought a good memory
    Could hurt so bad

    [Bridge]
    And I don't know what tomorrow holds
    But I know I can't live in the past
    And it's hard when all your childhood dreams
    Are the same ones you still have
    And it seems just like yesterday
    In a blur it all went by
    It's like I fell asleep at 16, and woke up 45

    [Chorus]
    And it goes on and on and on and on
    I know I got the rest of my life
    But that ain't long
    As it used to be
    My, my how time flies by
    And it goes on and on and on and on
    Next thing you know
    You wonder where the years have gone
    And trying to wish it back won't work
    Who'd have thought a good memory
    Could hurt so bad

    [Outro]
    (Where were you, wh- wh- where were you)
    (Where were you, wh- wh- where were you, you)
    (Where were you, wh- wh- where were you, you)
    (Where were you, wh- wh- where were you, you)
