~Toast each sundown with wine

Read these words to understand,

Life can be enjoyed,

By the simplest of things.


This song was written by Toby Keith:

Don’t let the old man in

I wanna leave this alone

Can’t leave it up to him

He’s knocking on my door

And I knew all of my life

That someday it would end

Get up and go outside

Don’t let the old man in

Many moons I have lived

My body’s weathered and worn

Ask yourself how would you be

If you didn’t know the day you were born

Try to love on your wife

And stay close to your friends

Toast each sundown with wine

Don’t let the old man in

Many moons I have lived

My body’s weathered and worn

Ask yourself how would you be

If you didn’t know the day you were born

When he rides up on his horse

And you feel that cold bitter wind

Look out your window and smile

Don’t let the old man in

I like the version sung by Willie Nelson.
