Glory Days
Bruce Springsteen Lyrics


I had a friend was a big baseball player
Back in high school
He could throw that speedball by you
Make you look like a fool boy
Saw him the other night at this roadside bar
I was walking in, he was walking out
We went back inside sat down had a few drinks
But all he kept talking about was

Glory days well they'll pass you by
Glory days in the wink of a young girl's eye
Glory days, glory days

Well there's a girl that lives up the block
Back in school she could turn all the boy's heads
Sometimes on a Friday I'll stop by
And have a few drinks after she put her kids to bed
Her and her husband Bobby well they split up
I guess it's two years gone by now
We just sit around talking about the old times,
She says when she feels like crying
She starts laughing thinking about

Glory days well they'll pass you by
Glory days in the wink of a young girl's eye
Glory days, glory days

Think I'm going down to the well tonight
And I'm going to drink till I get my fill
And I hope when I get old I don't sit around thinking about it
But I probably will
Yeah, just sitting back trying to recapture
A little of the glory of, well time slips away
And leaves you with nothing mister but
Boring stories of

Glory days yeah they'll pass you by
Glory days in the wink of a young girl's eye
Glory days, glory days

Yeah they'll pass you by
Glory days in the wink of a young girl's eye
Glory days, glory days

I had a friend was a big baseball player
Back in high school

Make you look like a fool boy
Saw him the other night at this roadside bar
I was walking in, he was walking out
We went back inside sat down had a few drinks
But all he kept talking about was

Glory days well they'll pass you by
Glory days in the wink of a young girl's eye
Glory days, glory days

Well there's a girl that lives up the block
Back in school she could turn all the boys' heads
Sometimes on a Friday I'll stop by
And have a few drinks after she put her kids to bed
Her and her husband Bobby well they split up
I guess it's two years gone by now
We just sit around talking about the old times
She says when she feels like crying
She starts laughing thinking about

Glory days well they'll pass you by
Glory days in the wink of a young girl's eye
Glory days, glory days

Now I think I'm going down to the well tonight
And I'm going to drink till I get my fill
And I hope when I get old I don't sit around thinking about it
But I probably will
Yeah, just sitting back trying to recapture
A little of the glory of, well time slips away
And leaves you with nothing mister but
Boring stories of

Glory days well they'll pass you by
Glory days in the wink of a young girl's eye
Glory days, glory days

Well they'll pass you by
Glory days in the wink of a young girl's eye
Glory days, glory days

The older you get, this song just gets sadder and better all at the same time.

@Marvin De Bot
I am 41 this year & I can
100% relate to this song with my health being to bad this year.

Alan Fox

It's a very true song the world over
your glory day's are gone like a flash they are gone before you even realise your living through them.

You think the glory day's will go on forever but before you know it your old & the glory day's are history.

John S

Yup. Just crossed that threshold.

Martin Pratchett

I use this song as a reminder to make every day my glory days. I’m always learning new things, laughing about the old times, talking about things that are going on, and planning things we’re doing next. Every day is the best day of my life. Thanks Bruce. 😊

Jean Bacon

And ultimately more and more true....💯

I remember when I thought, “My days are just beginning”, when I would hear this song. I had so many hopes and dreams: most unrealistic, but a few that made it. When I hear this song, I remind myself that looking back doesn’t have to be sad. I’ve come a long way. And I thank God for artists like Bruce. If only he knew how he kept my spirit alive......

@John S I hope it helps 💗 and remember everything can change in an instant, you just gotta do your part to make new dreams come true. Wishing you many of Gods blessings.

@Sunni Valley I have actual tears in my eyes reading this

@John S you are still a young man, let go of the past, forgive yourself, your Ms right is just around the corner.
And if not, there are happy times that you can create on your own, you don't have to be married to be happy.
Its all in the attitude.
Be kind to yourself, smile at yourself in the mirror, tell yourself you are a good man.... and be one. Find a homeless person to "adopt" go visit that person now and then where he hangs out, bring him a sandwich and an ice cold bottle of water on a hot day along with a smile. I guarantee you will be blessed hugely by that dudes (or woman's, or childs) gratitude.
Its giving that gives us a good feeling about ourselves.
Now get busy😉.... find something that you enjoy and do it.
