Behind The Times - Riley Green

The bill on his old ball cap is bent like an A-frame house
Sittin' on a park bench with some Beech-Nut in his mouth
Said 'No one reads the paper, these days it's all online.'
There he was, behind the times

He looked up from his front page, said 'This world's done gone to hell
Usually don't talk politics, but as far as I can tell
We could use another Reagan, boy, he was one of a kind.'
He shook his head, behind the times

He said 'Son, you're still young, save half of what you make
Trust the Lord, go buy a Ford or at least a Chevrolet
When you find a good girl keep her, cause they don't grow on vines'
Yeah, a man can learn a lot from a man behind the times

Said 'I've only loved one woman, went to church on our first date
Held the door, held her hand back when free love was the rage
Waited till the honeymoon, that suited me just fine
I guess I was behind the times.'

He said 'Son, you're still young, but trust me when I say
Go hug your mama 'cause, boy, I promise: you'll wish you could someday
When you find a good girl keep her, cause they don't grow on vines'
Yeah, a man can learn a lot from a man behind the times

He folded up that paper, said 'I better get on home
I don't wanna keep her waitin' she's got supper on
When you find a good girl keep her, just like I did mine.'
Yeah, a man can learn a lot from a man behind the times
Yeah, man, I learned a lot from that man behind the times
