Same Old Man
written by John Hiatt

Truth is I never was young
Shot like a bullet from a rusty old gun
I could never find the straight and true
Honey, baby till I found you

I ain’t saying I ever grown up girl
Oh I’m the biggest baby in the world
I know you can say a lot about that
But you’re so sweet you keep it under your hat

Honey I’m still the same old man
That you married way back when
A few less brain cells a lot less hair
Honey tell me do you still care

I love you more than I ever did
I love you just like a little kid
Guess I’ll always be your biggest fan
Honey I’m still the same old man

We been down a rough road or two
This is another one we’ll get through
Don’t ask me how I know
I’m just saying baby please don’t go

Cause I can still sparkle up your eyes
You can still cut me down to size
Please take me as I am
Honey I’m still the same old man

Honey I’m still the same old man
That you married way back when
A few less brain a lot less hair
Honey tell me do you still care

I love you more than I ever did
I love you just like a little kid
I guess I’ll always be your biggest fan
Honey I’m still the same old man

You start out trying to change everything
You wind up dancing with who you bring
I loved you then and my love still stands
Honey I’m still the same old man
