Subject: RE: Songs about getting older?
How about Charlie Poole's "Old And Only in the Way." And what a surprise, I couldn't locate it in the DigiTrad. Not having the record close by me, here's what I remember off the top of my head

CHORUS
So let us cheer them on
For they won't be with us long
Don't quarrel with them because they're old and gray
For remember when you're young
Old age to you will come
You'll be OLD AND GRAY AND ONLY IN THE WAY
