I’ll Never be That Old Man Words and Music by Richard Cummins ©2022 I said I’ll never be that old man, sittin’ in his truck Thinkin’ on his yesterdays and all his rotten luck I said I’ll never be that old man I said I’d never be that old man I said I’d never be that old man starin’ in his beer Wonderin’ how that boy inside, got from there to here I said I’d never be that old man I said I’d never be that old man I’ll Never be, that old man So why does my arm shake, just lifting up my cup? I’ve still got a Telephone, but nobody rings me up I could tell you stories that would open up your eyes Stories that would make you laugh, Stories that would make you cry But I don’t wanna be that old man! Don’t wanna be that old man! I said I’d never be that old man Starin’ at the ground Your better half is six feet under, silence is the sound I said I’d never be that old man I said I’d never be that old man I wouldn’t be that old man I said I wouldn’t be that old, I wouldn’t have regrets I said I would remember, but I seem to forget I said that I would love, I said that I would care I promised I would not sit staring at your empty chair I said I’d never be that old man I said I’ll never be that old man I wouldn’t be that old man! I wouldn’t be that old man!

Richard Cummins Agassiz, British Columbia

Richard Cummins first sang with his Mother on a home made tape when he was roughly 3 years old, in tune. She, having grown up on 50's rockabilly and country icons like Loretta Lynn, taught Richard the guitar at an early age.
