      About "Way Back Then"

      Lyrics for John Prine - "Way Back Then"

      Night is falling
      We're doing the things we do
      You are acting just like me
      I'm acting just like you
      Do you remember
      When you were my friend?
      That's the way I'd like things
      Just like way back then

      Baby's sleeping
      Brother is on the run
      I am out undoing
      All the good I've done
      If you loved me
      Tell you what I would do
      Wrap the world in silver foil
      Bring it home to you

      Lately, I feel
      That I can't pretend
      I may never, ever see
      The likes of you again
      I take a walk, I come back home
      Then I sit a spell
      Watch the ponies dance around
      The empty wishing well

      Night has fallen
      I've said the things I did
      The only baby sleeping
      Is when I was a kid
      Do you remember
      When you were my friend?
      That's the way I'd like things
      Just like way back then
