Have you ever thought that your life hasn't turned out the way you expected it would when you were young?


Old Man
By Ted Lehman (ASCAP) Copyright ©2011
Intro [F-C-D][F-C-G] F-C-G-D][(C-D-G-F-C-G(G-D)][(Bm-Am-G)C-D] or G-D)

When I talk to the younger generation
and their eyes grow wide with fascination
it's so tough to tell them the truth
about the world we imagine in our youth

Many roads lead to many places
no way to know what road your heart graces
flying blind through life, there is no other way
find something sweet, make the most of every day

when we're young we dream of fortune and fame
finding someone to share our life and name
we struggle with our passions and our fears
as the days slowly turn into years

When he was young
my son wanted to be like daddy
I told him "be the best man you can be"
"make time every day to be happy"
"and don't grow up to be a lonely old man like me"
"and don't grow up to be a lonely old man like me"

lonely old man
I'm just another guy
lonely old man
looking to get by
lonely old man
I wound up in a place
lonely old man
I thought I'd never face
