John Farnham – The Old Man Down The Road lyrics
He take the thunder from the mountain

He take a lightning from the sky

He bring a strong man to his begging knee

He make the youhg girl's mama cry.
You got to hidey-hide
You got to jump and run

You got to hidey-hidey-hide
The old man is down the road.
He got the voices speak in riddle

He got the eye as black as coal

He got a suitcase covered with rattlesnake hide
And he stands right in the road.
You got to hidey-hide
You got to jump up run away

You got to hidey-hidey-hide
Theold man is down the road.
He make the river call your lover

He make the barking of the hound

Put a shadow 'cross the window when the old man comes around.
You got to hidey-hide
You got to jump and run again

You got to hidey-hidey-hide
The old man is down the road

The old man is down the road.
You got to. You got to. You got to hidey-hidey-hide.
