I met and old man on a gray hound, on my way down to New Orleans,
He started talking in the back seat, he pulled out a flask and passed it to me.
He said some day you'll be my age and start looking back at where you've been,
You'll get a little sad and just a little mad when it hits you you can't do it all again.
So order up the good wine soak up the sun shine
And don't forget to take time and try to love someone.
'Cause life is just a crazy ride on a run away train
You can't go back to what you missed so make it good make it last
'Cause it all flies by so fast and you only get 1 trip.
I got off in Jackson and I started thinking staring out the window at the rain and I been living like a man sleep walking there's a lot of things that I'm gonna change I'm gonna order up the good wine start soaking up the good times wont let another day go by with out loving someone.
Life's just a crazy ride on a run away train,
You can't go back for what you've missed,
So make it count hold on tight find a way to make it right,
You only get one trip, so make it good make it last
'Cause it all flies by so fast but you only get 1 trip.
