Johnny Paycheck

"Old Violin"

[Verse 1]
Well I can't recall one time in my life
I've felt as lonely as I do tonight
I feel like I could lay down and get up no more
It's the damndest feeling, I never felt it before

[Chorus]
Tonight, I feel like an old violin
Soon to be put away and never played again

[Verse 2]
Don't ask me why I feel like this, hell, I can't say
I only wish this feeling would just go away
I guess it's 'cause the truth is the hardest thing I've ever faced
'Cause you just can't change the truth in the slightest way
I tried

[Verse 3]
So I asked myself
I said, "George, where do you go from here?"
Then like a fool, I turned around and I looked in the mirror

[Chorus]
And there, I was seeing an old violin
Soon to be put away and never played again

[Verse 4]
So one more time, just to be sure
I said, "Now, Troubadour, where in the hell do you go from here?"
And you know, there wasn't a nickel's worth of difference
When I looked into the mirror

[Chorus]
'Cause there, I was seeing an old violin
Soon to be put away and never played again

[Verse 5]
And just like that, it hit me
Why that old violin and I, we're just alike
We give our all to music, and soon we'll give our life

[Outro]
Precious memories, how they linger, ooh
