Old and in the way

    Old and in the way
    That's what I heard him say
    They used to heed the words he said
    But that was yesterday
    Coal will turn to gray
    And youth will fade away
    They'll never care about you
    Cause you're old and in the way

As I hear tell he was happy
He had his share of friends and were kind
Now those freinds have all passed on
He don't have a place called home
Looking back to a better day
When you're old and in the way

  * Refrain

When just a boy he left his home
Thought he'd have the world on a string
Now the years have come and gone
Through the streets he walks alone
LIke the old dog gone astray
He's just old and in the way

  * Refrain

They'll never care about you
Cause you're old in the way
