He’s the man with the banjo and the 12-string guitar
And he’s singing us the songs that tell us who we are
When you look in his eyes you know that somebody’s in there
Yeah, he knows where we’re going and where we been
And how the fog is gettin' thicker where the future should begin
When you look at his life you know that he’s really been there
Still, what is the name that they’re calling that man?
What is the name that they’re calling that man?
You know, it’s always the «Old Folkie»
They say he’s always bleedin'
But whenever somebody’s needing him
He’s the one who cares
It’s always the «Old Folkie»
Whenever somethin’s burning
Or a lesson needs some learning
Or a tide that needs some turning
To a better world somewhere
Yeah, the «Old Folkie’s» there
Yeah, for forty years now he’s been pushin' on
Carrying the dream 'cause Woody’s long gone
He’s the last voice singing that «Bound for Glory» song
And if you never seen him you might take a look
He’s the man who put the meaning in the music book
Yeah, the world may be tired but Pete’s still going strong
Still, what is the name that they’re calling that man?
What is the name that they’re calling that man?
You know, it’s always the «Old Folkie»
They say he’s always bleedin'
But whenever somebody’s needing him
He’s the one who cares
It’s always the «Old Folkie:'
Whenever somethin’s burning
Or a lesson needs some learning
Or a tide that needs some turning
To a better world somewhere, Yeah, the «Old Folkie’s» there
What is the name that they’re calling that man?
What is the name that they’re calling that man?
You know, it’s always the «Old Folkie»
Singing for some hopeless cause
Shouting at the mountain top
The wind is his only applause
It’s always the «Old Folkie»
We don’t know what we’re missing
'Cause nobody ever listens
'Cept the lovers as they’re kissin'
Oh, he’s singing for them somewhere
Yeah, the «Old Folkie’s» there. The"Old Folkie’s" there
