WILLIE NELSON
"Old Timer"
(Donnie Fritz, Lenny LeBlanc)

You had your run and it's been a good one
Seems like the world is passing you by
Oh Father Time, he just keeps on ticking
Still got a lot of life and a song to sing

You fell in love back in the day
Can't forget her face, can't remember her name
She was a beauty, a shining star
Just when you weren't looking she broke your heart

You've been down on every highway
Burned your share of bridges, you found forgiveness
You think that you're still a young bull rider
Till you look in the mirror and see an old timer

One by one your friends have crossed over
You pray for mercy and a few more days
Still got dreams inside your head
Someday it's a struggle just to get out of bed

You've been down on every highway
Burned your share of bridges, you found forgiveness
You think you're still a young bull rider
Till you look in the mirror and see an old timer
An old, old timer
