That Old Man

© 2004 Recorded on Every Step of the Way


Walking with him down the old dirt road

my little hand inside of his

he walked so slow so I could stay with him

I never said a word to that old man


Grandpa's bobber floating on the waves

he smiled and said keep both eyes on that line

don't ever let a big one get away

I never said a word to that old man


Tonight I walk alone underneath the stars

remembering the good times that are gone

tonight he's way up there with the moonlight and the breeze

I'm deep inside myself with that old man


He told me once that he would never leave

till everything down here could be all right

and then one day I turned and he was gone

I never said a word to that old man


Tonight I walk alone underneath the stars

remembering the good times that are gone

tonight he's way up there with the moonlight and the breeze

I'm deep inside myself with that old man
