lyrics

No, I never met a man as much a coward,
Jealous woman got you under her power,
Took a train to Rogers County when I was young,
Just to see where the bad half of my mind come from.
And what I found there was a weak man,
He stared at me with robot eyes so I could understand,
He’d been held under a slave-driver’s thumb,
Couldn’t muster up the strength to run, to run.

Old man, old man,
I got my mother’s eyes.
Old man, old man,
I got my mother’s eyes.

Out on the farm, they’re diggin’ up skeletons,
So keep your secrets to yourself, don’t ask questions,
Or she’ll come around and grab you up by the hand,
Carry you off to die, just like she did, she did my old man.

Old man, old man,
I got my mother’s eyes.
Old man, old man,
I got my mother’s eyes.
Old man, old man,
I got my mother’s eyes.
Old man, old man,
I got my mother’s eyes.

Hold a flame to your name,
I’ve removed you from my vein,
There’s no way you could ever hold sway,
Over a father’s legacy.

Old man, old man,
I got my mother’s eyes.
Old man, old man,
I got my mother’s eyes.
Old man, old man,
I got my mother’s eyes.
Old man, old man,
I got my mother’s eyes.
