In reply to: jlp 's message, "Happy 104th Birthday! Illustrator Mac Conner, Electrical Engineer Tomas Dy-Liacco is 97, Actor Rivhard Venture is 94, Painter John A, Ruthven is 93, Singer Dwijen Mukherjee is 90, Actress Rosalina Neri turns 90." on Sunday, November 12, 03:42:52am

The song was written for the caretaker of the Northern California Broken Arrow Ranch,
which Young purchased for $350,000 in 1970. The song compares a young man's life to
an old man's and shows that the young man has, to some extent, the same needs as the
old one. James Taylor played six-string banjo (tuned like a guitar) and sang on the song,
and Linda Ronstadt also contributed vocals. ...

"Old Man"

Old man look at my life,
I'm a lot like you were.
Old man look at my life,
I'm a lot like you were.

Old man look at my life,
Twenty four
and there's so much more
Live alone in a paradise
That makes me think of two.

Love lost, such a cost,
Give me things
that don't get lost.
Like a coin that won't get tossed
Rolling home to you.

Old man take a look at my life
I'm a lot like you
I need someone to love me
the whole day through
Ah, one look in my eyes
and you can tell that's true.

Lullabies, look in your eyes,
Run around the same old town.
Doesn't mean that much to me
To mean that much to you.

I've been first and last
Look at how the time goes past.
But I'm all alone at last.
Rolling home to you.

Old man take a look at my life
I'm a lot like you
I need someone to love me
the whole day through
Ah, one look in my eyes
and you can tell that's true.

Old man look at my life,
I'm a lot like you were.
Old man look at my life,
I'm a lot like you were.
