Chinaman  (©Chuck Auerbach, "Remember Me")

Not the man I used to be, can't do the things I used to do
Run around, raising hell, never thinking nothing through
Like who I hurt, who I lost, all the bills left unpaid
Never thought about the cost, never got in my way

chorus
Call me old and call me stubborn, call me just what I am
Just an old dog digging, till I meet a Chinaman
(last) just an old dog digging, till I meet a Chinaman

Not the man I used to be, and the world ain’t like it was
My old friends up and gone, left the old life in the dust
(but) Me I hung on, like the fool, I worked so hard to be
Spent a whole life going nowhere, and no where is
where I want to be
