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