Willie Nelson – Old Timer lyrics
You had your run
And it's been a good one
Seems like the world is passing you by
Oh Father Time
He just keeps on ticking
Still got a lot of life and a song to sing

You fell in love
Back in the day
Can't forget her face
Can't remember her name
She was a beauty
A shining star
Just when you weren't looking she broke your heart

You been down every highway
Burned your share of bridges
You found forgiveness
You think that you're still a young bull rider
Until you look in the mirror and see an old timer

One by one
Your friends have crossed over
You pray for mercy and a few more days
Still got dreams inside your head
Someday it's a struggle just to get out of bed

You been down every highway
Burned your share of bridges
You found forgiveness
You think you're still a young bull rider
Until you look in the mirror and see an old timer
