Larry Joe Taylor - The Older I Get lyrics

The crack of the bat, the crowd cheers
I close my eyes, lean back in my chair
Pretending that the man waving at the fans is me

I circle the bases as the credits roll
Drift off in a dream 'til the next thing I know
I'm out on the field and it's nineteen seventy-three

With my uniform on I was the happiest kid
Diving head first whenever I slid
I played with a passion that was somthin' else to see

Now with one big break, I know I could'a made it
Players these days are so overrated
Yeah, the older I get the better I used to be

(Chorus)
I played center field, I was number three
Hey, I bet they're still talkin' 'bout me
'Cause I could hit and I could throw
When the lights came on I was a one man show
Funny how it seems
The older I get the better I used to be

Now did I ever tell ya about the big play
When I hit a triple and saved the day
Man, my dad was so proud of me

And I don't tell just anyone this
But my senior year, I was one of the best
Yeah, the older I get the better I used to be

(Chorus)

Now in a couple of years I'll be havin' to explain
Why my jersey's not hanging in the hall of fame
'Cause the older I get the better I used to be
