Lefty Frizzell Lyrics – I’m An Old, Old Man (Tryin’ To Live While I Can)

Said a old man to a good looking girl
Well, I’ve been around this big wide world
That home on the hill, well, honey, that’s mine
I’ve got the money and got lots of time

I’m not too old to cut the mustard anymore
I can still get around like I did before
So come along we me, my sweet, sweet hon’
I’m an old, old man searching for fun

What I can do now, most young men can’t
There’s not a town that this a-boy can’t paint
I can make all the clubs just any old night
I may be a little older but I’m doing all right

Don’t take me wrong, I just want to have fun
Have someone along to help spend my mon’
‘Cause you don’t live but once, so please understand
That I’m an old, old man tryin’ to live while I can

I’ve got money to spend, a new car to drive
And I won’t give in, we’ll have fun, man alive
And we’ll honky tonk all the night long
I’m just an old man that don’t want to go home
