Old Man
Neil Young Lyrics


Old man, look at my life
I'm a lot like you were
Old man, look at my life
I'm a lot like you were

Old man, look at my life
Twenty-four and there's so much more
Live alone in a paradise
That makes me think of two
Love lost, such a cost
Give me things that don't get lost
Like a coin that won't get tossed
Rolling home to you

Old man, take a look at my life, I'm a lot like you
I need someone to love me the whole day through
Ah, one look in my eyes and you can tell that's true

Lullabies, look in your eyes
Run around the same old town
Doesn't mean that much to me
To mean that much to you

I've been first and last
Look at how the time goes past
But I'm all alone at last
Rolling home to you

Old man, take a look at my life, I'm a lot like you
I need someone to love me the whole day through
Ah, one look in my eyes and you can tell that's true

Old man, look at my life
I'm a lot like you were
Old man, look at my life
I'm a lot like you were

يَا أَيُّهَا الَّذِينَ آمَنُوا اتَّقُوا اللَّهَ وَلْتَنْظُرْ نَفْسٌ مَا قَدَّمَتْ لِغَدٍ ۖ وَاتَّقُوا اللَّهَ ۚ إِنَّ اللَّهَ خَبِيرٌ بِمَا تَعْمَلُونَ

I'm 35 and I grew up with this music because my dad listened to it. I grew up with what my parents played.
Don McLean
James Taylor
The alman brothers
Lynard skynard
Eric Clapton
The eagles
And then of course some newer ones like rush and yes...lol
This kind of music reminds me of being little dancing around in a basement when it was blaring upstairs and my parents were having a party.

This song reminds me of my father as well. He used to play it when I was little. So whenever I hear it, it brings me back ❤️

When a live session is better than the album-version. Awesome!!!

Akira Akai

@Diana Sendt It's a dead audience only because they'd never heard it before. This was the first time he ever played it.
