lyrics

What do you see, my son,
When you look at me now?
An old man wasting time?
Well, there were days...

When I stood tall and strong,
And my eyes were clear as glass,
When I held my women close,
And I knew what love was.

I'm not long for this world.
I checked out long ago.
What was your name again?
I can't remember now...

How it felt to stand so tall,
When my eyes were clear as glass,
How I held her close to me
Just to know what love was,
How it felt to taste the sun,
Working summers in the fields,
Taking life in tiny steps
As it took my mind from me.
