I put down my razor
Toweled off my face
Thought I saw a new wrinkle
And another strand of gray
That one little scar
Kept catching my eye
Reminding me how time does fly
I was only a kid
When I had that first fight
But I still dont give in
When I believe that Im right
And at least I can stand here
And like what I see
In the man that kid turned out to be

Lookin back at myself
Its plain to see
That the cold hands of time
Aint had much mercy on me
But I played a straight game
With the cards that were dealt
And I can look straight ahead
Lookin back at myself

Now I aint been no angel
But I learned right from wrong
Thanks to mamma and a hickory
And a love so strong
Yes she taught the rule
That life is lived by
I aint forgot what you get
For getting out of line
Now this old world throws some punches
And Ive taken a few
Now my skins tough as leather
But Ive grown strong with the truth
Theres been so many times I couldve just stepped aside
Ah but then I couldnt stand here with this peace of mind

Lookin back at myself
Its plain to see
That the cold hands of time
Aint had much mercy on me
But I played a straight game
With the cards that were dealt
And I can look straight ahead
Lookin back at myself

Still look straight ahead
Lookin back at myself
