Tattoos & Scars

(Tony Lane)



A young kid stepped in from the cold

And he ordered up a drink

He said don't look surprised old man I'm older than you think

If I was the talkin' kind I could tell you a thing or two

And since you didn't ask, let me show you my tattoos



He said I got this rose in Memphis in some back old alley dump

Picked this eagle up in Dallas, man I sure was good and drunk

And you know the way I see it, if it gets any worse out there

A guy like me hasn't got a prayer



The old man poured some coffee

He said this one's on me

Sat down his cigarette and rolled up his sleeve

Said take a good look here my friend

You see what these are

Just my ragged old and jagged ordinary scars

He said I got this one in Paris in a war 'fore you were born

And this one when I was half your age workin' on my daddy's farm

And you know the way I see it, son you ain't seen what I've seen

Cause tattoos and scars are different things



He said I've been here for all these years

And what I know is this

If you look and listen close

A man will show you what he is

You know the way I see it, you've been 'round but you're still green

Cause tattoos and scars are different things



A young kid stepped in from the cold

And he ordered up a drink

He said don't look surprised old man

I'm older than you think
