Lyrics by Tom Sharp, 21 June 1979

When I was a younger man and hung around in Austin It was hot and humid and had nothing much to do Then I started listening to the tales my friends would tell me They would say how good it was to hang around with you Well, I grew up pretty fast once I found in Austin Everyone all wanted you to be in love with them And now I’m an older man I stay away from Austin Austin is a lonely place It’s lonely without you
