Charlie Daniels Band, The - Me And The Boys Lyrics




Remember back when we were young
And all the crazy things that we have done
Me and the Boys out skipping school
Back on the hill acting a fool
Yes its so easy to remember when
Everything was so simple then
We never worried about the money we spent
When you ain''t got no money
You don't care where it went

[Chorus:]
Feel the wind running through our hair as we ride
Running so fast not even time could hold us
Young and free we had nothing to hide
And we were doing all the things that nobody told us

Summer days when there weren't any courses
Down at the creek riding make believe horses
Acting out westerns that they had seen
Down at the picture show movie screen
One year later feeling 5 years older
Still scared of the girls but we were acting much bolder
And in the evening when the sun went down
Back street, make out, fooling around

[Bridge:]
Me and the Boys [x4]

Cruising around in a '57 dodge
Boys all checking out the noisy ride
Backyard mechanics each and every one
It was greasy work but damn it was fun

[Bridge]

  1. Fraero

    me and the boys when we find this song

  2. Lawrence Powell

    This song was written by Matt Minglewood of Cape Breton, Nova Scotia. Matt opened for Charlie back in the late 1970s and Charlie loved this song so much he recorded it and named this album after it.

    Darryl Reed

    Yes that's so true. We opened for Matt Minglewood in 1986 in Alberta, Canada @ Kelly's Bar. I always loved this song and this album. Very cool to know that Matt had written this song. It fits CDB so well. I love Tom Crain on Class of 63 also.

  3. Arlene Miller

    Charlie is one of my favorite artists. A great Musician, A great American, A great Christian, I seen him live in concert last summer 2015 and he makes that fiddle sing just like years ago! God Bless him

  4. Rob Peters

    Great song

  5. Δημήτριος Διρχαλίδης

    Remember back when we were young
    And all the crazy things that we have done
    Me and the Boys out skipping school
    Back on the hill acting a fool
    Yes its so easy to remember when
    Everything was so simple then
    We never worried about the money we spent
    When you ain’t got no money
    You don’t care where it went
    Feel the wind running through our hair as we ride
    Running so fast not even time could hold us
    Young and free we had nothing to hi
    And we were doing all the things that nobody told us
    Summer days when there weren’t any courses
    Down at the creek riding make believe horses
    Acting out westerns that they had seen
    Down at the picture show movie screen
    One year later feeling 5 years older
    Still scared of the girls but we were acting much bolder
    And in the evening when the sun went down
    Back street, make out, fooling around
    Me and the Boys
    Cheers from Athens!!!

    no cell phones, no smart phones, very little money yet we fished, hunted, rode our bikes out going everywhere in the country. I really feel blessed growing up then than now

  7. John Cody

    I was doing Country Radio at KHSL when I noticed this song on the album. I played it and it made me think even though I grew up in Lowell, Mass. that's how we were. We didn't have money or special clothes  or anything like that. We just went out at enjoyed being young.

  8. phyllis tipton

    Charlie Daniels was the first concert I went to as a teenager and at 54 I still love him!

  9. Nathan LaMarche

    WOW!! What wonderful childhood memories. I used to listen to this album as a cassette tape when I was a kid. It's like the 1980's all over again.
