I was coming to the end of a long, long walk
When a man crawled out of a cardboard box
Under the E. Street Bridge, followed me on to it

I went out halfway across
With that homeless shadow tagging along
So I dug for some change, wouldn't need it anyway

He took it lookin' just a bit ashamed
He said, You know, I haven't always been this way

I've had my moments, days in the sun
Moments, I was second to none
Moments when I knew I did what I thought I couldn't do

Like that plane ride, coming home from the war
That summer my son was born
And memories like a coat so warm, a cold wind can't get through
Lookin' at me now you might not know it but I've had my moments

Well, I stood there tryin' to find my nerve
Wondering if a single soul on Earth
Would care at all, miss me when I'm gone

That old man just kept hanging around
Lookin' at me, lookin' down
I think he recognized that look in my eyes

Standing with him there I felt ashamed
I said, You know, I haven't always been this way

I've had my moments, days in the sun
Moments, I was second to none
Moments when I knew I did what I thought I couldn't do

Like the day I walked away from the wine
For a woman who became my wife
And a love that, when it was right could always see me through
Lookin' at me now you might not know it but I've had my moments

I know somewhere 'round a trashcan fire tonight
That old man tells his story one more time, he says

I've had my moments, days in the sun
Moments I was second to none
Moments when I knew I did what I thought I couldn't do

Like that cool night on the E. Street Bridge
When a young man almost ended it
I was right there, wasn't scared a bit and I helped to pull him through

Lookin' at me now you might not know it
Oh, lookin' at me now you might not know it but I've had my moments
I've had my moments, I've had my moments, I've had my moments
