    sparky, This is what it sounds like to me, but my hearing is so bad that my dog barked and I thought it was a cat.
    If you need the mp3 let me know. If you see words that need fixin' let me know and I'll correct them.

    C’mon Sixty-Five – Mel McDaniel

    Somewhere on the old Sage River there’s an old cane pole that’s waiting for me
    Patiently
    And a city job might drag me down but one fine day I’m gonna be set free
    Just wait and see
    Then I’m gonna go down where the waters touch the sky
    Where all the old men’s laughter, echoes like a lullaby

    Sixty-five, c’mon sixty-five
    It’s a sin to waste my life away, but I can’t wait til I’m
    Sixty-five, c’mon sixty-five
    There’s a gold watch if I get out alive… at sixty-five

    Now somewhere in my memories I recall a boy of seventeen
    Full of dreams
    Dreams that life just strips away a layer at a time and now what’s left
    Ain’t hardly news
    Ah, but I saved up a little here and there to get me by
    Enough to mend these ragged wings and once again I’ll fly

    Sixty-five, c’mon sixty-five
    It’s a sin to waste my life away, but I can’t wait til I’m
    Sixty-five, c’mon sixty-five
    For the object of the game is to survive… at 65

    I’ve heard it said that hard work never did a grown man’s body any harm
    Well they were wrong
    It’s all these years of liftin’ things I should-a left alone, they took their toll
    But my will is strong
    And a day that I walk out of here I’ll hold my head up high
    I’ll pawn that stupid watch and just kiss thirty years goodbye

    Sixty-five, c’mon sixty-five
    It’s a sin to waste my life away, but I can’t wait til I’m
    Sixty-five, c’mon sixty-five
    There’s a gold watch if I get out alive… at sixty-five

    Sixty-five, c’mon sixty-five
    It’s a sin to waste my life away, but I can’t wait til I’m
    Sixty-five, c’mon sixty-five
    For the object of the game is to survive… at 65

    Now somewhere on the old Sage River there’s an old cane pole that’s waiting for me
    Patiently
