C'mon Sixty Five
Recorded by Merle Haggard
Written by Jackson Lee Leap

C F C
Somewhere on the old Kern River there's an old cane pole
G7 C
That waits for me patiently this city job might drag me down
F C G7 C
But one fine day I'm gonna be set free wait and see
F C
And then I'm gonna go down to where the waters touch the sky
F C G7
Where the old men's laughter goes like a lullaby

C F C
Sixty five c'mon sixty five it's a sin to waste my life away
G7 C F C
But I can't wait till I'm sixty five c'mon sixty five
G7 F C
There's a gold watch if I get out alive past sixty five

F C
Now somewhere in my memories I recall a boy
G7 C
Seventeen full of dreams dreams and life just stripped away
F C G7 C
A layer at a time now what's left ain't hardly me
F C
Oh but I saved up a little here and there to get me by
F C G7
Enough to mend my ragged wings and once again I'll fly

C F C
Sixty five c'mon sixty five it's a sin to waste my life away
G7 C F C
But I can't wait till I'm sixty five c'mon sixty five
G7 F C
Lord the object of the games is to survive past sixty five

F C
I've heard it said that hard work never did a body's body
G7 C
Any harm well they were wrong cause all these years of lifting things
F C G7 C
I should of left alone took their toll my will was strong
F C
And the day that I walk out of here I'll hold my head up high
F C G7
Then I'll pawn this stupid watch and kiss thirty years goodbye

Repeat #2

F C
Now somewhere on the old Kern River there's an old cane pole
G7 C
That waits for me patiently
