“The Gaither Vocal Band is an American southern gospel vocal group, named after its founder and leader Bill Gaither. Founded in the early ’80s, Gaither Vocal Band is one of America’s leading faith-based vocal groups. While Gaither remained the only original member of the ensemble, many well-regarded CCM/gospel singers have passed through the band’s ranks, including Russ Taff, Guy Penrod, Wes Hampton, Michael English, Mark Lowry, and David Phelps. On March 1, 2017, it was announced that the Gaither Vocal Band lineup consisted of Reggie Smith, Wes Hampton, Adam Crabb, Todd Suttles, and Bill Gaither. Although the group started out recording contemporary Christian music in the 1980s, it became known for southern gospel after the popularity of the Gaither Homecoming videos.” (Source: Wikipedia)

Thought Gettin’ Older Lyrics

Gaither Vocal Band

I thought gettin’ older would take a lot longer than it did
It seems like the day before
Yesterday i was just a little snotty-nosed kid
That shock of hair that i had back there went away and hid
Yeah, it did
But i thought gettin’ older would take a lot longer than it did


Well i’d have thought for sure jesus would’ve come back by now
(thought he would, thought he would)
I still believe someday i’ll see him
Riding that big white horse through the clouds
I believe it even more right now than i did when i was a kid
Still i thought gettin’ older would take a lot longer than it did
(they thought gettin’ older would take a lot longer than it did)


And i hope i have a few more years before they close that lid
Ah, come on, larry
We’ve had more fun already than i’d really like to admit
Still i thought gettin’ older would take a lot longer
(he thought gettin’ older would take a lot longer)
Still i thought gettin’ older would take a lot longer than it did
Oh, come on, kevin, show us your stuff


I’d thought by now i’d have more money than i do
(thought he would, thought he would)
Oh, but god knows best, we’ve all been blessed
(with more than enough to see us through)
And i wouldn’t trade places with anyone else, heaven and god forbid
Still i thought gettin’ older would take a lot longer than it did


Now this simple song is just two minutes long
Come on, larry, who we trying to kid?
But it sure seems like it took a lot longer than it did
(thank the lord)
