Just a Guy in a Band

Music & Lyrics Paul Dougherty

I made my way home the other night, after a long day at work
She had been going through some old things, had on my old T-shirt
Who is that guy, what was the name of the band, where did you guys play
It was a long time ago I said, there’s not much to say

Just a guy in a band that I once knew
Just a guy in a band that I once knew
Just a guy in a band or two

Remember the night that we first met, at that famous hole in the wall
You were young and wearing a new tattoo, strutting like the cock of walk, now
Yeah and I remember all your friends, and you looking so fine
Whatever happened to that girl, who kept saying I wasn’t the right kind

Just a guy in a band, no that won’t do
Just a guy in a band, no that won’t do
Just a guy in a band without a clue

Say hello next time you see him live
And tell him I’m alright, how time flies

Let’s get the kids in bed, goddamn I’m tired
Tomorrow’s another long day
Well let me light some candles she said, and throw in that old mix tape
I never asked you about that boy, in that refrigerator photo
But don’t he look a lot like me from all those years ago

Just a guy in a band that I once knew
Just a guy in a band that I once knew
Just a guy in a band, just like you
