lyrics

you old Silver Fox
i know you ain’t done yet
you can still throw a shape in the shadows
standing on the corner with a cigarette
she’s just 24 but you’re not anymore
you old fox on the loose
you don’t do too bad with your silver moustache
and your cowboy boots

and you know there’s gonna come a day
when the clock’s gonna give you away
but it won’t be tonight

so pour some more whiskey on the rocks
for that old Silver Fox

that pretty skirt is gonna catch the sunrise
lyin’ with your country shirt on her bedroom floor tonight
oh how she likes to flirt, how you love to shoot the lines
straight from your hips through your lips
she’s your little rabbit in the moonlight

but you know there’s gonna come a day
when the rabbits keep gettin’ away
but it won’t be tonight

so pour some more whiskey on the rocks
for that old Silver Fox

and you won’t take it too bad
if it don’t work out
you’re never gonna let her see you sad
if it don’t work out
coz it’s nothin’ you aint been through
and tonight she’s gonna to be with you

you old silver fox, I know you got the blues
but you dress sharp as a tack
so we don’t see the cracks or the holes in yr shoes
and that old whiskey river’s gonna take your troubled mind
but it just can’t deliver you from what you left behind

and you know there’s gonna come a day
when that river’s gonna make you pay
but it won’t be tonight
so pour some more whiskey on the rocks
for that old Silver Fox
