89: "Old Man" - Neil Young

Updated: Mar 20, 2019


I just came upon this classic live version of Neil Young singing "Old Man."


It was recorded on February, 23 1971. BBC Television Theatre, Shepherd's Bush, London.


It feels to me like it was recorded yesterday. Hard to believe it was nearly 50 years ago!




This video has been viewed over 61 million times. No surprise. It is stunning.


Here are the lyrics to "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


Beautiful.
