  • Neil Young - Old Man

    "Old Man"


    Old man look at my life,
    I'm a lot like you were.
    Old man look at my life,
    I'm a lot like you were.

    Old man look at my life,
    Twenty four
    and there's so much more
    Live alone in a paradise
    That makes me think of two.

    Love lost, such a cost,
    Give me things
    that don't get lost.
    Like a coin that won't get tossed
    Rolling home to you.

    Old man take a look at my life
    I'm a lot like you
    I need someone to love me
    the whole day through
    Ah, one look in my eyes
    and you can tell that's true.

    Lullabies, look in your eyes,
    Run around the same old town.
    Doesn't mean that much to me
    To mean that much to you.

    I've been first and last
    Look at how the time goes past.
    But I'm all alone at last.
    Rolling home to you.

    Old man take a look at my life
    I'm a lot like you
    I need someone to love me
    the whole day through
    Ah, one look in my eyes
    and you can tell that's true.

    Old man look at my life,
    I'm a lot like you were.
    Old man look at my life,
    I'm a lot like you were.

      yes, everything he does seems to resonate with me, or at least his soulful stuff.

        was watching a docu on BBC 4 last night called When Rock Goes Acoustic, and the voice over guy started talking about how a simple acoustic guitar + signing can express most innermost emotions etc. and voice-over guy was really talking it up, while we were looking at Neil Young, and i just couldn't help but thing; 'yeah, it also helps if you're one of the greatest singer - songwriters ever too...'

        i really don't think the man necessarily receives the praise he deserves tbh
        a bit like Ry Cooder, never gets praised quite enough

          I love Ry Cooder, and some country and western writer/singers like Lambert too.
