  1. Old Songs

From the recording Old Songs

A celebration of those folks who have inspired me through the years and who are still chugging away – Odetta (until so recently), Pete Seeger, Richie Havens, George Ward – the list goes on.

Chorus:
I’m an old singer of the old songs
No more storm and angst for me
I know where I belong
I’m an old singer of the old songs
Though my body’s weak
My spirit’s still strong

When I was younger I dreamed of fortune and fame
Every where I’d go, people would know my name
Though I never really made it big
I’d do it all over again

Chorus:

I sang for my supper, a place to rest my head
Sang ‘till I was almost dead
I sang in the shower, sang till late at night
I sang in the morning light

Chorus:

I’ve traveled all over this country
I’ve traveled far and wide
And when my days are over
I’ll sing on the other side

Chorus:
