~Favorite Songs about Men~





Neil Young Old Man



"Old Man"

Old man look at my life, I'm a lot like you were. Old man look at my life, I'm a lot like you were.

Old man look at my life, Twenty four and there's so much more Live alone in a paradise That makes me think of two.

Love lost, such a cost, Give me things that don't get lost. Like a coin that won't get tossed Rolling home to you.

Old man take a look at my life I'm a lot like you I need someone to love me the whole day through Ah, one look in my eyes and you can tell that's true.

Lullabies, look in your eyes, Run around the same old town. Doesn't mean that much to me To mean that much to you.

I've been first and last Look at how the time goes past. But I'm all alone at last. Rolling home to you.

Old man take a look at my life I'm a lot like you I need someone to love me the whole day through Ah, one look in my eyes and you can tell that's true.

Old man look at my life, I'm a lot like you were. Old man look at my life, I'm a lot like you were.

Kansas - Carry On Wayward Son


Refrain} Carry on my wayward son There'll be peace when you are done Lay your weary head to rest Don't you cry no more Once I rose above the noise and confusion Just to get a glimpse beyond this illusion I was soaring ever higher But I flew too high Though my eyes could see I still was a blind man Though my mind could think I still was a mad man I hear the voices when I'm dreaming I can hear them say {Refrain} Masquerading as a man with a reason My charade is the event of the season And if I claim to be a wise man, well It surely means that I don't know On a stormy sea of moving emotion Tossed about I'm like a ship on the ocean I set a course for winds of fortune But I hear the voices say {Refrain} No! Carry on, you will always remember Carry on, nothing equals the splendor Now your life's no longer empty Surely heaven waits for you

“Let’s Get It On”

Marvin Gaye

I’ve been really tryin’ baby
Tryin’ to hold back this feeling
For so long
And if you feel like I feel baby
Then come on Aww come on

Let’s get on
Aww baby
Let’s get it on

People Are Crazy by Billy Currington


This old man and me, were at the bar and we...
Were having us some beers and swappin' I-don't-cares
Talking politics, blonde and redhead chicks
Old dogs and new tricks, and habits we ain't kicked
We talked about God's grace, and all the hell we raised
Then I heard the ol' man say
God is great, beer is good, and people are crazy

He said I fought two wars, been married and divorced
What brings you to Ohio, he said damned if I know
We talked an hour or two, 'bout every girl we knew
What all we put them through, like two old boys will do
We pondered life and death, he lit a cigarette
Said these damn things will kill me yet
But God is great, beer is good, and people are crazy

Last call was 2 a.m., I said goodbye to him
I never talked to him again

Then one sunny day, I saw the old man's face
Front page obituary, he was a millionairee
He left his fortune to some guy he barely knew
His kids were mad as hell, but me...I'm doing well
And I dropped by today, to just say thanks and pray
And I left a six-pack right there on his grave
And I said, God is great, beer is good, and people are crazy

God is great, beer is good, and people are crazy

God is great, beer is good, and people are crazy
