I thought this was worth sharing. It starts with Toby Keith playing golf with Clint Eastwood. That sets the stage.

At one point, Eastwood said to Keith, “I turn 88 on Monday.”

“What are you going to do?” Keith asked.

“I’m going to shoot a movie,” Eastwood replied, with filming scheduled to begin the following week.

“What keeps you going?” Keith asked him.

“I get up every day and don't let the old man in,” Eastwood said.

“I’m writing this down right now,” Keith replied.

Keith didn't ask him if he could contribute a song, Keith just went home and wrote it, sent it to Clint and hoped that he would consider it. And, he did.

Here it is: Toby Keith - Don't Let The Old Man In

Thanks for posting. I may have to adopt that as my new theme song. The old man knocks on my door from time to time, but so far I have been able to send him away.

The old man shows up at my door disguised as a television and couch, often times with a cup of coffee...

That's a good one. I need to be more careful.

I can see "Don't let the old man in" applies to good days when ya hitting on all 8, but in reality them days come along less and less as you get older.

That's when another of Clint's statements applies, "A man has got to know his limitations", that's when the old man
sneaks in a little.

Such is the reality in old cootsville, I guar-run-tee.
