Old Age Pension Check

Roy Acuff

Writer: Roy Acuff

 DA7D
  When our old age pen- sion check comes to our  door
 D7GD
We won't have to  dread the  poorhouse any  more
 G
Though we're  old and thin and gray
 D
Good  times will be back to stay
 A7A7D
When our old age pen- sion  check comes to our  door.

 A7D
When her old age pen- sion check comes to her  door
 D7GD
Dear old grand- ma won't be  lonesome any  more
 GD
She'll be  waiting at the gate, ever'  night she'll have a date
 A7D
When her old age pen- sion check comes to her  door.

Grow a flowing, long white beard and use a cane
'Cause you're in your second childhood, don't complain
Life will just begin at sixty, we'll all feel very frisky
When our old age pension check comes to our door.

Powder and paint will be abolished on that day
And hoop skirts will then be brought back into play
Painted cheeks will be the rage, and old maids will tell their age
When their old age pension checks come to their door.

All the drug stores will go bankrupt on that day
For cosmetics, they will all be put away
I'll put a flapper on the shelf, get a grandma for myself
When her old age pension check comes to her door.

There's a man that turned this country upside down
With his old age pension rumor going 'round
If you want in on the fun, send your dime to Washington
And that old age pension man will be around.
