The Lyrics

Sadly, this is all too close to being true. My father used to be able to play the piano, but now his fingers are too wracked to play. My mother's had a bad back for a while now. And me? Oy, better you shouldn't ask...
(instrumental opening)

Lord, You made me a crumblin' man.
Tryin' to stop the achin', and doin' the best I can.
So when it's time for leavin', I hope You'll understand
that You made me a crumblin' man.

My father had arthritis in his joints, y'all.
His fingers couldn't type or grip a gun.
And mama's back thrown out of joint on Greyhound bus.
Inherit their genes, what I done.

Lord, You made me a crumblin' man.
Tryin' to stop the achin', and doin' the best I can.
So when it's time for leavin', I hope You'll understand
that You made me a crumblin' man.

(instrumental break)

I'm on my way to Rochester this mornin'.
The one in Minnesota, not New York.
They got themselves a clinic there called the Mayo, yeah.
I hope they've got some cure that's gonna work.

Lord, You made me a crumblin' man.
Tryin' to stop the achin', and doin' the best I can.
So when it's time for leavin', I hope You'll understand
that You made me a crumblin' man.

Lord, You made me a crumblin' man.
Lord, You made me a crumblin' man.
Lord, You made me a crumblin' man.
Lord, You made me a crumblin' man.

(long instrumental close)

Ouch. Am always dreading a visit from Uncle Arth. So far, only he comes 'round only occasionally, but always to the same single joint--first (i. e., bottom) one on right hand index finger--but has really worn out his welcme by the time he sliips away a couple weeks later. Except for no dietary correlation, the weird, highly localized,and absolutely consistent pain site would make me wonder whether it mightn't be Auntie Gout gone lost. :-)
