When I Was A Young Boy
Savoy Brown Lyrics

When I was a young boy
Advice I would scorn
Now I'm gettin' a little older
I know I got a lot to learn

yesterday's illusions are tomorrow's smiles
I'll look back and laugh
Baby, sometimes, in a while

(repeat twice)

and it always seems the same
And who knows what to blame
If I knew then what I know now
The mistakes I wouldn't have made...
But you can't get a sneak preview
Over what you're gonna go through
And you have to rely on your body and mind
To see the light from shade

life's the same, but time does change
Perspective of your view
You're lookin' for a mystery
But you can't find a clue

some say a man makes his life
Some say that it's fate
But when you find out what to do
Ohhh, sometimes it's too late...

Another great song by one of the Best Blues - Bands from the UK with that unique voice of * Chris Youlden *
Best audio - quality, great orchestration too
Regards from Switzerland

Bill Badford

Love ya, Chris! Too much freaking soul!

Deborah Brown

This is a great timeless song, lyrics are as relevant today as they were back then. Listen to them, carefully. Chris was the best, his voice is so good. Sad when he left the band. Raw Sienna is one of their best LP's, IMO.πŸ€”πŸ™„πŸŽΆπŸŒŸπŸŽΆπŸ’ž

Just a great album, been listening for 50yrs and it sounds just as good as ever.
