Once I was just a boy!
Grew up with second
Hand toys,and for me ,
Only brought me joy
Once I was just a boy.I

Those days are now gone,
bye / so long ago it was,I
Walked along the main road ,
Collecting all the five cent
Bottles, and tin cans ,that
I could fine, to redeem at
The Conner store, for my
Momma needed flower,to
Feed kinfolk at home.
Back when I was a boy!.
Once I was just,a boy.
