That Old Time Feeling - Guy Clark

And that old time feeling
goes sneakin' down the hall
Like an old gray cat in winter,
keepin' close to the wall
And that old time feeling
comes stumblin' up the street
Like an old salesman kickin' the papers
from his feet

And that old time feeling draws
circles around the block
Like old women with no children,
holdin' hands with the clock
And that old time feeling falls on
its face in the park
Like an old wino prayin'
he can make it till it's dark

And that old time feeling comes and
goes in the rain
Like an old man with his checkers,
dyin' to find a game
And that old time feeling plays for beer in bars
Like an old blues-time picker
who don't recall who you are

And that old time feeling limps through the night on a crutch
Like an old soldier wonderin' if he's paid too much
And that old time feeling rocks and spits and cries
Like an old lover rememberin' the girl with the clear blue eyes

And that old time feeling goes sneakin' down the hall
Like an old gray cat in winter, keepin' close to the wall
