PETER, PAUL & MARY


Old Coat Lyrics

Take off your old coat and roll up your sleeves
Life is a hard road to travel, I believe

I look to the east, I look to the west
A youth asking fate to be rewardin'
But fortune is a blind god, flying through the clouds
And forgettin' me on this side of Jordan

Take off your old coat and roll up your sleeves
Life is a hard road to travel, I believe

Silver spoons to some mouths, golden spoons to others
Dare a man to change the given order
Though they smile and tell us, "All of us are brothers"
Never was it true this side of Jordan

Take off your old coat and roll up your sleeves
Life is a hard road to travel, I believe

Like some ragged owlet with its wings expanded
Nailed to some garden gate or boardin'
Thus will I by some men all my life be branded
Never hurted none this side of Jordan

Take off your old coat and roll up your sleeves
Life is a hard road to travel, I believe
