Old Hippie Recorded by the Bellamy Brothers Written by David Bellamy
G C G He turned thirty-five last Sunday in his hair he found some gray D7 But he still ain't changed his lifestyle he likes it better the old way C G So he grows a little garden in the back yard by the fence C G D7 He's consuming what he's growing now-a days in self defense G He gets out there in the twilight zone C G Sometimes when it just don't make no sense
C G He gets off on country music cause disco left him cold D7 He's got young friends in a new wave but he's just too damn old C G And he dreams at night of Woodstock and the day John Lennon died C G D7 How the music made him happy and the silence made him cry G C G Yeah he thinks of John sometimes and he has to wonder why
C G He's an old hippie and he don't know what to do D7 G Should he hang on to the old should he grab on to the new C G He's an old hippie his new life is just a bust D7 C D7 G He ain't trying to change nobody he just trying real hard to adjust
C G He was sure back in the sixties that everyone was hip D7 Then they sent him off to Vietnam on his senior trip C G And they forced him to become a man while he was still a boy C G D7 And behind each wave of tragedy he waited for the joy G C G Now this world may change around him but he just can't change no more
C G Well he stays away a lot now from the parties and the clubs
And he's thinking while he's jogging around D7 Sure is glad he quit the hard drugs C G Cause him and his kind get more endangered everyday C G D7 And pretty soon the species will just up and fade away G C G Like the smoke from that torpedo just up and fade away
