Lyric "It's The Age That Makes The Difference"

When I was just a little boy and life was bright and new
Askin' foolish questions was all I could find to do
One day I asked my grandpa why he moved around so slow
He said listen son I'll tell you if you really wanna know
It's the age that makes the difference and the difference you can see
I'm runnin' out of what the doctors call vitality
I'm just like a dried up apple that keeps hangin' through a tree
It's the age that makes the difference and the difference tells on me

So when I started courtin' I was bashful and shy
It tore me all to pieces when a girl winked her eye
But when I started catchin' on I didn't learn to slow
Pretty soon they said I was a reckled Romeo
It's the age that makes the difference and the difference put me wise
That the time was right for lovin' and the limit was the skies
Pretty soon I found out what it took to not come cold
It was the age that made the difference and the difference made me bold

Not long ago I was a man that really got around
But here I've laid I've noticed that I started slowin' down
I find that ain't no trouble now to stay at home at night
I'm mild and mellowed now but I will soon be over right
It's the age that makes the difference and the difference makes me know
That my high speed days are over and I'll have to take it slow
I ain't really feeling older but I just don't feel the same
It's the age that makes the difference father time can make a change

Ernest Dale Tubb (February 9, 1914 – September 6, 1984), nicknamed the Texas Troubadour, was an American singer and songwriter and one of the pioneers of country music. His biggest career hit song, "Walking the Floor Over You" (1941), marked the rise of the honky tonk style of music. In 1948, he was the first singer to record a hit version of "Blue Christmas", a song more commonly associated with Elvis Presley and his mid-1950s version.
