OLD MAN
(Zurkowski/McDonald)

Old man nailed up a wall
Lit the wall on fire
Said someday we all will fall
I told him he's a liar
Flung his hammer straight at me
Flew upon the pyre
Keep runnin' down the road

Woman at a stove
Cooking up some food
She tells us it's her love
Makes it taste so good
Hammer slams through kitchen wall
We stand there like we're wood
Keep runnin' down the road
Keep runnin' down the road

Get up on the roof
The flood is rolling in
Water, water, everywhere
Drink the old man's gin
Float your boat with anything
Living ain't no sin
Keep rollin' down the road
Keep rollin' down the road

Dead leaves in the gutters
Water can't get through
I'm worried 'bout the others
I don't know what they'll do
Baby, kiss me one more time
Until this time gets through
Keep runnin' down the road
Keep runnin' down the road

Old man nailed up a wall
Lit the wall on fire
Said someday we all will fall
I told him he's a liar
Swung his hammer straight at me
Flew upon the pyre
Keep runnin' down the road
Keep runnin' down the road
