Don't Let the Old Man In

Album: First Rose of Spring (2020)
  • Don't let the old man in
    I wanna live me some more
    Can't leave it up to him
    He's knocking on my door
    I knew all of my life
    That someday it would end
    Get up and go outside
    Don't let the old man in

    Many moons I have lived
    My body's weathered and worn
    Ask yourself how old you'd be
    If you didn't know the day you were born

    Try to love on your wife
    And stay close to your friends
    Toast each sundown with wine
    And don't let the old man in

    Many moons I have lived
    My body's weathered and worn
    Ask yourself how old you'd be
    If you didn't know the day you were born

    When he rides up on his horse
    And you feel that cold bitter wind
    Look out your window and smile
    And don't let the old man in

    Look out your window and smile
    And don't let the old man in Writer/s: Toby Keith
