lyrics

This old dog ain't seen his day
but I seen a lot of dreams fade away
walked a lot of miles to get on home
now I'm in the backyard digging up some bones

Late at night when I'm drinking wine
I let the stars release my mind
I think about the days when we was young
I think about the days we used to run

And the thing I recall the most
was hitching a ride up the coast
living on the beach all summer long
riding the waves and singing songs

And we ran hand in hand
we never had no special plans
and we never found our promised land
but we were diggin' the sand
and we were diggin' the sun
and we were diggin' our times
and we were diggin' on love

There was a place we used to hang
just a little shack where we'd meet the gang
if there was a band we'd get up and dance
if there was a girl I'd take a chance

You were a child, just running wild
two bare feet, a big ol' smile
you had your whole life yet to live
with all your love to give

And we ran hand in hand
we never had no special plans
and we never found our promised land
but we were diggin' the sand
and we were diggin' the sun
and we were diggin' our times
and we were diggin' on love
