lyrics

Mean Old Man

He was a mean old man,
he had a taste for revenge
His bitter talk and when he walks a chill goes right through you
He had a crooked smile
he had a face to fool a child
And with his tricks he’d fix your fix or two, for a while

Got myself running, running….
Got myself wondering why I’m doing the best I can

Well papa’s gotta brand new bag
your weakness makes him glad
Set his sight on you and when he’s through aint nothing you can do

Got myself running, running….
Got myself wondering why I’m stuck here with this gun in my hand

I laid out my finest in superstition black
My head high my spine bent I can feel him on my back

They carried his body in the sunrise to the grave
Singing and praying that his soul they could save
His soul they could save
