The Waving Flag: Old Folks Boogie

Old Folks Boogie

This lyric popped into my head just after I’d finished the previous post. Seemed appropriate really.
“Try and get a rise from an atrophied muscle,
And the nerves in your thigh just quivers and fizzles
So you know, that you're over the hill
When your mind makes a promise that your body can't fill“

Let me know if it strikes a chord with you. It’s from the last verse of "Old Folks Boogie" by Little Feat.  Here's a live version from YouTube:

The track's from the 1977 album "Time Loves A Hero" but it's also available on the 1994 "best of" album "As Time Goes By".  I've had a copy of the latter since it came out.  It's a truly wonderful album chock full of great tunes and much much better than "Time Loves A Hero".  Recommended.
