I'm tired Joey-Boy


I'm tired Joey-boy While you're out with the sheep My life is so troubled That I can't get to sleep I would walk myself out But the streets are so dark I shall wait til the morning And walk in the park Cause life is so simple When one is at home And I'm never complaining Where there's work to be done Oh I'm tired Joey-boy Of the makings of men I would like to be cheerful again Ambition will take you and ride you too far And conservatism bring you to boredom once more Sit down by the river and watch the stream flow Recall all the dreams that you once used to know Things you've forgotten that took you away To pastures not greener but meaner Love that is simple is all that I need I've no time for schism or lovers of greed Go up to the mount then Go up to the glen Where silence will touch you And heartbreak will mend.
