Lyrics

Old Man (Lyrics & Music by Steve Laurie: 7/94 & 11/30/94)

It’s so hard to change when you become set in your ways
When habit forms the better part of all you do each day
And all your honest effort to make things around you improve
Get washed away in an instant when old habits shine on through

Old man, you’re dragging me down
Old man, you’re dragging me down
Old man, you’re dragging me down to the ground

A change of scenery may seem to be of good
But patterns set will stay with you no matter where you live
And habits cling to you like cobwebs in an old cave
It seems to me these things of old should’ve died at my water grave

The ones you love the most and live with every day
Are subject to your habits and your vices and mistakes
And so the things you do affect all those you know
So I pray for the renewing of my heart and mind and soul

Old man, you’ve got to let go
Old man, you’ve got to let go
Old man, you’ve got to let go, don’t you know

Old man, leave me alone
Old man, leave me alone
Old man, leave me alone, from now on
