Artist: jimmy buffett
Song: sending the old man home
Sending the old man home
By: jimmy buffett
1979
They're sendin' the old man home
Back where the buffalo roam
Out in the pacific, they say he was the best
Now he's in his "civies", headin' home like all the rest

He'll never forget rosa lee
Or sleepless nights he fought upon the sea
He'll only have the memories
Or great books by james jones

'cause they're sendin' the old man home

Faraway (faraway)
Faraway (faraway)
Another life so very far away

They'll tear down the officers clubs
And write off the overdue subs
So let's drink to their memories
Our heroes and our pals
To those crazy navy flyers
To those swell hawaiian gals

The sailors will dance in the street
Then they'll mothball the whole damn fleet
We'll only have the picture books
Of land, and sea, and foam

'cause they're sendin' the old man home

He'll only have his memories
Or great books by james jones
'cause they're sendin' the old man home

Notes -
Background vocals: jimmy buffett, james taylor, deborah mccoll
