Elton John
Tumbleweed Connection (1970)

Why hello
Say can I buy you another glass of beer
Well thanks a lot, that's kind of you
It's nice to know you care
These days there's so much going on
No one seems to want to know
I may be just an old soldier to some
But I know how it feels to grow old

Yeah that's right

You can see me here most every night
You'll always see me staring at the wall and the lights
Funny I remember oh its years ago id say
I'd stand at the bar with my friends who've passed away
And drink three times the beer that I can drink today
Yes I know how it feels to grow old

I know what they're saying son
there goes old mad Joe again
Well I maybe mad at that I've seen enough
To make a man go out his brain
Well do they know what it's like to have a grave yard as a friend
'cause that's where they are boy all of them
Don't seem likely that ill get friends like that again

Well its time I've moved off

It's been great just listening to you
And I might even see you the next time I'm passing through
You're right there's so much going on
No one seems to want to know
So keep well, keep well old friend
And have another drink on me
Just ignore all the others
You've got your memories
You've got your memories
