Another Year Older

Lyrics: Allen Kemp
Music: Allen Kemp

Played by the New Riders of the Purple Sage in the late 1970s, but not recorded for one of their albums.

You think it's all over
Another year older
I got up and walked down the line
It's getting confusing
I'm so afraid of losing
Lord help me make it this time

Don't let it take the rest of me
Don't let it take the best of me
'Cause I still have so much left to give
All this rocking and rolling
People keep the music flowing
And open up that door and let me in

So won't you take a lesson
And listen to this sound
Won't you pick me up, don't let me down
So won't you take a lesson
And listen to this sound
I've been waiting ten long years to be found
Won't you pick me up, don't let me down

I want to pour out my heart to you
By singing my song to you
Help me feel the very best you can
It's not hard [?]
You can go out [?] would please me
To see you smile and say you understand

So won't you take a lesson
And listen to this sound
Won't you pick me up, don't let me down
So won't you take a lesson
And listen to this sound
I've been waiting ten long years to be found
Won't you pick me up, don't let me down

You think it's all over
Another year older
I got up and walked down the line
It's getting confusing
I'm so afraid of losing
Lord help me make it this time
Lord help me make it
Lord help me make it
Lord help me make it this time
