troubadour lyrics – george strait

i still feel 25 most of the time.
i still raise a little cain with the boys.
honky tonks and pretty women,
but lord i’m still right there with ’em
singing above the crowd and the noise…

[chorus]
sometimes i feel like jesse james
still tryin’ to make a name.
knowing nothing’s gonna change what i am.
i was a young troubador
when i wrote in on a song.
and i’ll be an old troubador when i’m gone…

well the truth about a mirror…
is that a d*mn old mirror…
don’t really tell the whole truth.
it don’t show what’s deep inside.
or read between the lines.
and it’s really no reflextion of my youth…

[chorus]
sometimes i feel like jesse james
still tryin’ to make a name.
knowing nothing’s gonna change what i am.
i was a young troubador
when i wrote in on a song.
i’ll be an old troubador when i’m gone…

i was a young troubador
when i wrote in on a song.
and i’ll be an old troubador when i’m gone…
i’ll be an old troubador when i’m gone…
