Older than I once was

Oh, the wonderfulness of Paul Simon. Ken Bruce (whom I've now switched off) played The Boxer sung by Simon & Garfunkel. I found myself singing along, note and word perfect and transported to a better place (Brighton 1969, actually). No doubt this was amusing for the builders downstairs. Query for Paul Simon buffs and I'm looking hard at huskyteer, here. I'll swear the version just played on the radio left out the 'I'm older than I once was...After changes etc' verse. Can this be so?
