He's out there somewhere every night

The music's playin' loud

He's doing all-a those fifty's steps

He's in a 1980 crowd


Dim lights hide the milage line

Clairol hides the gray

And he won't mention anything

To give his old age away


Oh lord he's thirty-nine an he's holdin'

He's holdin' everything that he can

From seventeen to twenty-five

He'll prove he's still a man

Hey boy you're holding to a candle

And it's a-burning at both ends

Thirty-nine and holding

A-holdin' everything that i can


(instrumental piano and fiddle solo)


Well now you can bet he'll never see

Thirty-nine again

Son you oughta given up a long time ago

But you just keep on hangin' in


He still thinks that he's the man

That he once used to be

Boy you're just thirty-nine

And you're dreamin'

Acting twenty-three


Oh-oh he's thirty-nine he's holdin'

Holdin' everything that he can

From seventeen to twenty-five

He'll prove he's still a man


He's a-holding to a candle

My god it's burning at both ends!

He's thirty-nine and he's holdin'

Holdin' everything he can


(instrumental and piano solo to end)



He's thirty-nine and he's dreamin'.
