C              D           G                 C
Old and in the way, that’s what I heard them say
     Am               C                                G
They used to heed the words he said, but that was yesterday
C                 D        G                C
Gold will turn to gray and youth will fade away
        Am          C                                    G
They’ll never care about you while you’re old and in the way

D                        G
Once I hear tell, he was happy
C                G                D
Had his share of friends and good times
           C
Now, those friends have all passed on
         G                    Em
He don’t have no place called home
         Am            C                        D      G
Like the old dog gone astray, he’s just old and in the way


When just a boy, he left his home
Thought he’d have the world on a string
Now the years have come and gone
Through the streets he walks alone
Lookin’ back to a better day, feelin’ old and in the way
