Jamestown Revival – Old Man Looking Back Lyrics

Old Man Looking Back Lyrics – Jamestown Revival

Young man tell me, what do you know?
You ain’t even seen your children grow
Young man, I’ve been down that way
And you may not listen to a word I say

You got fire and I got time
Even though it’s no friend of mine

Young man tell me, what do you see
High in the perch of your hickory tree?
Young man, why you moving so fast?
The days are long, but they never last

You blow in like a hurricane
Truth be told, I was just the same

Young man, did I teach you well?
If you come up short then I guess I failed
You realize I’m just learning too
Just a young man wearing an old man’s shoes

Time goes by and people change
I’ll be gone, but you’ll remain
