Lyrics

We're not so old now
Compared to lots of things
The railroad's older
But I still hear those railroad songs a-ring

From the east coast
Out across the great divide
Pointing westward
To someplace where the ocean meets the sky

It's where I found you
Somewhere in that space
It's where we live now
Rolling town to town and place to place
Always moving, but never on the run
Raising our family
Chasing dreams that always chase the sun

So when you tell me, that we're no longer young
I say we're not so old now
We're not so old now

We have three children
We've learned all their games
We watched them take their first steps
We cried when we told them their names

They're so tall now
And they make me so proud
They know we love them
They know because we tell them right out loud

We've grown also
We're not who we were then
I watch our daughters
I see the girl I knew in them
I see their brother
Stubborn, and thick as hell
I once was sixteen
these things I still remember well

So when you tell, me, that we're no longer young
I say we're not so old now
We're not so old now

A touch of silver
Bright eyes dimmed by the sun
And all the miles
We've come together every one

I love you more now
Your love means more to me
Than all those years ago
Nothing worth having comes for free

And I still see you
Handsome as you were then
Not just a lover
Also a mother, and a friend
And you still stir me
You still drive my spirit wild
And there are still days
That I can make you laugh just like a child

So when you tell me, that we're no longer young
Yeah when you scold me, and tell me I'm no longer young
And when you tell me, that you don't feel so young
I say we're not so old now
We're not so old now
