Saw him sittin' on a sidewalk in Fresno
Braided hair and a tye-dyed t-shirt on
Talkin' to himself about Vietnam
'Bout the tour he did and the deal he got
He said, This world ain’t the same if you ask me.
If I could be somewhere else, I’d tell you where I’d be.

I’d be rollin' on a river with Creedance
Stealin' kisses from Peggy Sue
I’d be knee-deep in sand on a Panama beach
In the spring of '72
I’d be wastin' away on the dock of the bay
Watchin' the tide roll in
He said, What I wouldn’t give just to live those songs, again.

Saw him workin' the counter at Walgreens
With a new haircut and a Bachelor’s Degree
Talkin' to himself about his raw deal
Cussin' Uncle Sam and the GI bill
He said, This world ain’t the same if you ask me
If I could be somewhere else, I’d tell you where I’d be.

I’d be rollin' on a river with Creedance
Stealin' kisses from Peggy Sue
I’d be knee-deep in sand on a Panama beach
In the spring of '72
I’d be wastin' away on the dock of the bay
Watchin' the tide roll in
He said, What I wouldn’t give just to live those songs, again.

He said, This world ain’t the same if you ask me
If I could be somewhere else, I’d tell you where I’d be.

I’d be rollin' on a river with Creedance
Stealin' kisses from Peggy Sue
I’d be knee-deep in sand on a Panama beach
In the spring of '72
I’d be wastin' away on the dock of the bay
Watchin' the tide roll in
He said, What I wouldn’t give just to live those songs, again.
Oh, again…
