I remember when we was mountainmen
seems like it wern't long ago
We was Bullhide tough and we played real rough
there wern't a man that we couldn't throw

When we drawed down on a deer our eyes was clear
an that critter was soon on a pole
We Mountainmen,... you'd a thought back then
that we would ever grow old

We shoot smoothbores now, can't see rear sights
but the front blade is still fairly clear
we load them smoothies with a big round ball
an we still manage to kill us some deer

We still rendezvous an we still count coup
but it ain't like it use ta be
Our joints is worn an it's hard ta run
when ya got a titanium knee

Then there's them pipes, ya just never know
if they're in the shape they should be
So the Doc he say's, Son I think it's time
ya got a colonoscopy

Can't sleep no more on the cold hard ground
since we got that new plastic hip
use ta drink a whole jug round the fire at night
now it's just a few little sips

The day will come...not far down the road
when they'll wanna put us in a home
They'll say we're too old ta be out in the cold
too old ta hunt on our own

When they come ta take me to that old folks home
on some cold dark rainy night
They'll sure be surprised when this old Coon say's
"BOYS, THAT'LL BE AFTER THE FIGHT!"

But if they win, an I'm put in
to that fearsom lonely place
to swaller pills cuz I got the chills
mongst wrinkles on my face,

Then remember me, ya all that's still free,
an hold to the mountain creed
To never rest, but fight yer best
Til the old coon is finely freed

Thats' really good, and reminds me of a lot of the older guys in our club. I'm not there yet, but close enough that I can see it on the horizon...

I turned 74 this year, so far 2 titanium knees, fused spine, fused neck, new shoulder, and a stent in my heart. I guess I'm just too stupid to quit.

OK! You win,lol....I'm NOT there yet.Thank God. I had an Orthopod tell me many years ago not to have joint,or back,surgery until I literally could not walk any more. I'm still walking,slow,but walking.

Yeah, 15 years ago a nuerosurgeon wanted to trim the flare off two vertebres in my neck and fuse them to relieve the nerve pinch that caused tingling and numbness in my fingers. I simply couldn't take the time off for recovery at the time and the numbness came and went. I would have had to get a job less physically stressing after recovery. I couldn't have earned enough afterward. So I just let it go. now there is a degree of numbness all the time with complete numbness in several fingers at times. I went thru spinal surgery at age 19 and I can tell you that I don't want to go thru it again now. I can live with it for as much time as I have left on this earth. Where I'm going there won't be any spinal wear and tear.
