Nat Adderley & Curtis R. Lewis

lyrics

Hey, you old man sit-in by the lonesome road
Its bout time your quit-tin, life so tired and low
You’re so sad and lonely, got no family
Just and old man from some old country.

You aint sired no chillen, aint nune by your side
You left all your women, aint you satisfied
Don’t just sit there clinging to a memory
Of a love left in some old country.

Don’t no body need you old man
Cause no body calls your name
No body but a whisper what a dog gone shame.
So the cold grim reaper has no sympathy
You won’t see your home land except through me.
