Old Town Blues
Boy & Bear Lyrics

To my aching glow
You got a hold of me now
How you rendered slow
But harder than hell to my ground

I'm looking for my old mans' shoes
I'm kicking off these old town blues

Just don't leave me here
Cos' I just won't survive
There's a raven hovering
But he's keeping me alive

I've known him all my life
He's the spirit of a young man mourning
But like the shadow of a carving knife
He's not the danger but the warning sign
And we're kicking off easy

I can't seem to move
I'm paralysed
I'm chocking on my holy mood

Cos I wanna be an old man too
I wanna be a role model to my kids
I wanna teach them how to love
But you gotta show me how to live
And we're kicking off easy

I NEVER tire of this song! I have it on repeat and it takes many repeats before I go on to something else!


I've had the album on repeat since it came out and this might be my favorite song.

Old town blue's.....is an excellent tune and the album Harlequin dream is just brilliant.....but just how many album's need to be re- recorded with the same track's ?...... okay so why not just use the exact same album cover as was used on the last album.....nobody will ever notice
