There Comes A Time

there comes a time
when they no longer say you don't
look a day over sixty
say godamighty sir watch out
don't you know better than
to cross against the light good thing
i was here to grab hold of you now
you gonna be okay right you know which way is home right
cause i can put you in a cab
or call a relative
you got relatives don't you
jesus that was a close one huh smiling that smile
while you try to explain
let go my elbow you're making me lean
