      About "Those Were The Days"

      Lyrics for Dolly Parton - "Those Were The Days"

      Once upon a time there was a tavern
      Where we used to raise a glass or two
      Remember how we laughed away the hours
      And dreamed of all the great things we would do

      [Chorus]
      Those were the days my friend
      We thought they'd never end
      We'd sing and dance forever and a day
      We'd live the life we choose
      We'd fight and never lose
      For we were young and sure to have our way.
      La la la la,
      Those were the days, oh yes those were the days

      Then the busy years went rushing by us
      We lost our starry notions on the way
      If by chance I'd see you in the tavern
      We'd smile at one another and we'd say

      [Chorus]

      Just tonight I stood before the tavern
      Nothing seemed the way it used to be
      In the glass I saw a strange reflection
      Was that lonely woman really me

      [Chorus]

      Through the door there came familiar laughter
      I saw your face and heard you call my name
      Oh my friend we're older but no wiser
      For in our hearts the dreams are still the same

      [Chorus]
