I'm an old man now, I can't do nothing
Young folks don't pay me no mind
But in my day I sure was something
Before I felt the heavy hand of time
I'm an old man now, I'm bound for glory
Time to lay these burdens down
Had enough of this old world
Of worry
Gonna trade my troubles for a crown
I will make my way across the fields of cotton
And wade through muddy waters one last time
And in my dreams I come out clean
When I reach the other side
Waste away the sunsets
Where rainbows never die
I've got on last thing to do
One more mile before I'm through
Casting off these earthly chains
Going where there's no more pain
I will make my way across the fields of cotton
And wade through muddy waters one last time
And in my dreams I come out clean
When I reach the other side
Waste away the sunsets
Where rainbows never die
I'm an old man now, can't do nothing
Young folks don't pay me no mind

Interesting.
I found it a mix of new age, jazz and James Bond theme.
I’m not much on the new age stuff, but there are parts of that which i really enjoyed.

Another shamelss plug for my nephew’s other band.
VERY cool!!! Not at all the same type of music.

I believe there are two types of song listeners.
1) musical (me).
2) lyrical (the rest of my family).

They’ve really got the sound needed to make it and they play very well together…..or, at least this piece was put together expertly. The singer has a good and unique voice too.
I’ll be looking for this one on iTunes, so i can enjoy it at volume. If it still gets me, I’ll be sharing it with friends and family.

Now, I need the lyrics.

A poor girl wants to marry
And a rich girl wants to flirt
A rich man goes to college
And a poor man goes to work
A drunkard wants another drink of wine
And a politician wants a vote
I don't want much of nothin' at all
But I will take another toke

I cast no stones
I build no walls
And I tell the truth
The truth comes to call
And I try to walk
That narrow way
Sometimes I go over the lines
And I won’t make it back till the next day
But I cast no stones
What gives you the right
To tell me my business
Good God man your out of your mind
So put up your Bible
Or let me get mine
I’m not draggin’ the whole world to hell
You’re wasting my time
I don’t talk with Jesus
As much as I should
I don’t read that good book
Everyday like I could
But I like to stop
At the end of the day
I pray that I hurt nobody
And somebody new found their way

It'a a lyrics kinda night :D

I got a half a six pack of Old Milwaukee
And a half a bag of weed
I can't do it like I did when I was a kid
This is all I'm going to need
Because I know you always worry about me drinking my dinner
But I don't do that anymore
I got me a sweet girl at home
She's keeping food on the table
Every night she keeps me warm
So I've got me this piece of paper
And I got my favorite pen
I know it's been a little while
And talking's not my style
So I just had to write my friend
Hey I'm doing alright mamma
I'm okay, I know your late night talks with Jesus
Have helped me on my way
I know it wasn't always easy
Raising my father's son
And your son will be alright
If the shows keep coming
This old guitar and me are still strumming
I know you always knew I always took it way too far
But I'm doing alright now mamma
I'm doing alright now mamma
I'm doing alright now mamma
I'm doing okay
You remember the time I was stuck in L.A.?
And I didn't have a job
And I didn't have a way to pay the bills that I racked up
Yeah, you kept me from losing my truck
Yeah, I'm a little better off now
Than I was then but it's sure nice to see you calling me when
I'm out there on the road
Yeah, you calling to say "have a good show"
Hey I'm doing alright mamma
I'm okay, I know your late night talks with Jesus
Have helped me on my way
I know it wasn't always easy
Raising my father's son
And your son will be alright
If the shows keep coming
This old guitar and me are still strumming
I know you always knew I always took it way too far
But I'm doing alright now mamma
I'm doing alright now mamma
I'm doing alright now mamma
I'm doing okay

Am I the only one here tonight
Shakin' my head and thinkin' somethin' ain't right
Is it just me? Am I losin' my mind?
Am I standin' on the edge of the end of time?
Am I the only one? Tell me I'm not
Who thinks they're takin' all the good we got
And turnin' it bad, hell, I'll be damned
I think I'm turnin' into my old man
Am I the only one, willin' to bleed
Or take a bullet for bein' free
Screamin', "What the fuck" at my TV
For tellin' me, yeah, are you tellin' me?
That I'm the only one, willin' to fight
For my love of the red and white
And the blue, burnin' on the ground
Another statue comin' down in a town near you
Watchin' the threads of Old Glory come undone
Am I the only one not brainwashed?
Makin' my way through the land of the lost
Who still gives a shit and worries 'bout his kids
As they try to undo all the things he did?
Am I the only one who can't take no more
Screamin', "If you don't like it, there's the fuckin' door"
This ain't the freedom we've been fightin' for
It was somethin' more, yeah, it was somethin' more
Am I the only one, willin' to fight
For my love of the red and white
And the blue, burnin' on the ground
Another statue comin' down in a town near you
Watchin' the threads of Old Glory come undone
I'm not the only one
I can't be the only one
Am I the only one who quits singin' along
Every time they play a Springsteen song?
Am I the only one sittin' here
Still holdin' on, holdin' back my tears
For the ones who paid with the lives they gave
God bless the U.S.A
I'm not the only one, willin' to fight
For my love of the red and white
And the blue, burnin' on the ground
Another statue comin' down in a town near you
Watchin' the threads of Old Glory come undone
I'm not the only one
I can't be the only one

Recently realised this makes me smile some. Used to be into different music but am happy with this genre now.
Love me some C.S. somewhat surprised you like this
