Yesterday’s Wine Lyrics

Miracles appear in the strangest of places
Fancy me finding you here
The last time I saw you was just out of Houston
Let me sit down and buy you a beer
Your presence is welcome with me and my friend here
‘Cause this is a hangout of mine
We come here quite often to listen to music
And to taste yesterday’s wine
Yesterday’s wine, yesterday’s wine
Agin’ with time like yesterday’s wine
Yesterday’s wine, yesterday’s wine
We’re agin’ with time like yesterday’s wine
You give the appearance of one widely traveled
But lord, I’ll bet you’ve seen things in your time
Come sit down here with us and tell us your story
If it’s true you like yesterday’s wine
Yesterday’s wine, yesterday’s wine
We’re agin’ with time like yesterday’s wine
Yesterday’s wine, yesterday’s wine
We’re agin’ with time like yesterday’s wine
