Todd Snider's AGE LIKE WINE

Old timer, Old timer
Too late to die young now
Old timer, five and dimer
Trying to find a way to age like wine somehow

My new stuff is nothing like my old stuff was
And neither one is much when compared to the show
Which will not be as good as some other one you saw...
So help me, I know, I know, I know

I am an old timer, old timer
It's too late to die young now
Old timer, five and dimer
Trying to find a way to age like wine somehow

I've met every fool that ever signed
Their picture on these walls
In the backs of these beer joints and concert halls.
I been through seven managers, five labels,
A thousand picks and patch cables,
Three vans, a band, a bunch of guitar stands,
and cans and cans and cans of beer
And bottles of booze and bags of pot
And a thousand other things that I forgot.
I thought that I be dead by now...
But I'm not.
