New Lives For Old
by Wayne Watson

Album: Signature Songs
by Wayne Watson

They say he ran a carnival, he used to come to town
'Til one September afternoon he shut it down
They tell me something happened, some say he lost his mind
Now most September afternoons this is what you'll find
An old man on the corner where he used to sell his show
Now he shouts what sounds like foolishness
As the people come and go

New lives for old
Warm hearts for cold
Have I got a deal for you today
C'mon, step right this way
And get your new lives for old

He puts it in the paper, he goes from door to door
The people say he's such a fool to come back for more
Old friends are mostly puzzled, they don't know what to say
Cause ever since that afternoon he's just been that way
It's like the old man died and someone came to take his place
Now he just stands out there bellowin'
A smile upon his wrinkled face

Remembering the story as I once passed through that town
I thought I ought to stop and see if he's still around
There was someone on that corner where I heard he'd always stand
And he chuckled when I asked where I could find the man
He said "Thank God that crazy fool finally died last spring"
And I said "I'll take up where he left off then
'Cause I'm pushing the same thing"
