Lyrics

I pondered on those days long gone as I sat beside the mill
And gazed upon the setting sun as it sank behind the hill
I gazed on it once more me boys was the very best of things
Sure it is the same now as it was when we were sweet sixteen

Oh how I long for the good old days to come again once more
But come again they never will for now I'm sixty-four

The little fish down in the brook and the valleys down below
They swam upon the rippling rill as they did long long ago
The little meadows by the brook they’re still as fresh and green
They’re still as fresh now as they were when we were sweet sixteen

The past is past and she is gone no more on earth to roam
But when we meet in heaven above on that eternal shore
But when we meet no more to part sure we both will reign supreme
No more we’ll sing of bygone days when we were sweet sixteen

Oh how I long for the good old days to come again once more
But come again they never will for now I'm sixty-four
But come again they never will for now I'm sixty-four
