I'm Tired Joey Boy - Van Morrison
    I'm tired Joey Boy

    While you're out with the sheep
    My life is so troubled
    Now I can't go to sleep
    I would walk myself out
    But the streets are so dark
    I shall wait till the morning
    And walk in the park

    This life is so simple when
    One is at home
    And I'm never complaining
    When 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
    The things you've forgotten
    That took you away
    To pastures not greener but meaner

    Love of the simple is all that I need
    I've no time for schism or lovers of greed
    Go up to the mountain, go up to the glen
    When silence will touch you
    And heartbreak will mend.
