The Old Stuff
Perf. Garth Brooks
Album: Fresh Horses

Words and Music: Bryan Kennedy, Dan Roberts and Garth Brooks


Oh, I said a little prayer tonight 'fore I came on stage
As I came walking past the drivers and the locals on the union wage
I asked the dear lord up in heaven
Let me treat the music right,
And I preyed that Detroit goes wild tonight.

Seven pickers and all our gear in a rental van,
Playin' music, never sleepin' and a-workin' on a neon tan.
We played The Bam down in Stanford, Florida
For Bev Roberts up from Camden Park
We plugged it in up east at Bull Run and the place went dark.

Back when the old stuff was new
Back before the busses and the hard working boys in the crew
Well it was one big party but the papers called it paying our dues,
Back when the old stuff was new.

Oh, the stories we could tell if it wern't for code of the road
About the Buckboard, Bear Creek, Cowboys and the Grizzly Rose.
You know the weather turned bad in Scottsdale;
A tornado nearly stole the show,
We just danced in the rain and listened to the thunder roll.

Back when the old stuff was new
Hats off to the K. C. Opry and ellA Garu's
It was one big party; Uncle Joe you know we owe it to you.
Back when the old stuff was new.

(instrumental)

No rules, young fools
comming from the Old School
taking on the world of love.
Next date, cannot wait
tearin' up the interstate
Every place we played was home.
Balls's out, no doubt
This is what its all about
Beggin' for a place to play
Swingin' with our old friends
Prayin' that it never ends
Wouldn't trade a single day.

Back when the old stuff was new,
Back before the busses and the hard working boys in the crew,
It was one big party but the papers called it paying our due:
Back when the old stuff was new.

Hey yes there's one big party
You can come in whenever you choose,
You made me feel like the old stuff was new.
