OK, you must be thinking of this one:

(Copied from http://www.eighteenminutes.com/Lyrics/AgeLikeWine.html)

AGE LIKE WINE
Todd Snider

Old timer, old timer,
Too late to die young now.
Old timer, five-and-dimer,
Trying to find a way to age like wine somehow.

My new stuff is nothing like my old stuff was,
And neither one is much when compared to this show,
Which will not be as good as some other one you saw;
So help me, I know, I know.

I am an old timer, old timer.
It's too late to die young now.
Old timer, five-and-dimer,
Trying to find a way to age like wine somehow.

I've met every fool that ever signed their name up on these walls
In the backs of all these beer joints and concert halls.
I've been through seven managers, five labels,
A thousand picks and patch cables,
Three vans, a band, a bunch of guitar stands,
And cans and cans and cans of beer,
And bottles of booze, and bags of pot,
And a thousand other things I forgot.
I thought that I'd be dead by now,
But I'm not.

[As sung by Todd Snider on "East Nashville Skyline," Oh Boy CD #31, 2004.]

Subject: Lyr Add: JUST IN CASE (Todd Snider)

"Old Timer" is my second favourite Todd Snider song; the first being "Just In Case". I've had the opportunity to sing this to 3 couples right before their weddings.

JUST IN CASE Todd Snider

You oughta know by now this love of mine is real.
Honey words just can't explain the way I feel
And even though we just met,
I'm so glad the date is set
And years from now you can bet
We'll be together still

But just in case, just in case,
This morning I dropped by my lawyer's place.
I didn't think that you would mind
Here Honey, sign this dotted line.
What's yours is yours
And what is mine will always be mine,
Just in case.

Well, you know I can't love you enough
But I also can't afford to lose half of my stuff.
Though there's no doubt in my mind
This tie that we're about to bind
Will keep us both together
Even when the going's tough,

Just in case, just in case,
This morning I swung by my lawyer's place.
I didn't think that you would mind
Here Dumplin', sign this dotted line.
What's yours is yours
And what is mine will always be mine,
Just in case, just in case, just in case.
