The Old Country Lyrics

From the Album Nancy Wilson/Cannonball Adderley (1961)

Hey you old man sittin'
By the lonesome road
It's 'bout time you're quittin'
life's old tiresome load

You're so sad and lonely
Got no family
Just an old man from
Some old country

You ain't sired no chillen'
Ain't none by your side
You left all your women
Ain't you satisfied

Don't just sit there clingin'
To a memory
Of the love left in
Some old country

Don't nobody need you old man
'Cause nobody calls your name
Nobody's gonna whisper
What a doggone shame

So the cold grim reaper
Has no sympathy
You won't see your homeland
'cept through me
