Naomi

Naomi
(Ralph McTell)

 Age has made her frail
 I'm scared to take her in my arms
 But there's an understanding now
 And a peace behind the eyes
 And age is for complaining
 But you won't here much from me
 Growing old with Naomi

 Now I recall the first time
 I took her in my arms
 At times I was unfaithful
 She said: "no future in the past"
 So we don't talk about it
 She keeps a gentle edge on me
 I don't mind growing old with Naomi

 She wasn't all I wanted
 But she's all I'll ever need
 Oh, a rich man always wants some more
 And I was rich indeed
 A rich man and a poor fool
 Yet it turned out right for me
 How lucky can you get?
 Growing old with Naomi

 The kids today, they think that they've
 Discovered everything
 But me and her, well we'd done it all
 Without a wedding ring
 Sometimes things remind us
 And she's smiling back at me
 It ain't hard growing old with Naomi

 She wasn't all I wanted
 But she's all I'll ever need
 Oh, a rich man and a poor fool
 And I was rich indeed
 I never thought her beautiful
 But I do now, 'cause I see
 I'm getting wiser
 Growing old with Naomi

 Oh, the place is kind of quiet now
 The kids have all left home
 We'd like to see more of them
 But we're grateful when they call
 And in the quietness afterwards
 She comes and sits by me
 Make me feel like a man
 Growing old with Naomi
