Au secours, mes amis!

I've tried. The DT. Google, Alta Vista, alla them things. No luck.

I'm looking for the lyrics to an Ian Tyson song called "Long, Long Time to Get Old", recorded by Ian & Sylvia on the "Great Speckled Bird" album. There be lotsa discography references, but that's all.

I recall the 1st verse:

Eagle's flyin' tomorrow; mosquito bitin' me today
Ride the bus to Toronto; Highway 2 all the way
Take a walk along Yonge Street; good times bought and sold
Remember this, children, if the good Lord's willin', there's a Long, Long Time to Get Old

Can't recall the rest. Help? (chords would be convenient, but the rest of the lyrics are what I need.

Pretty please and thanks . . .
