I hadn't seen the boy in fifteen years
He had lines that said he cried a rainbow of tears
He left one day before his late night drives
He said everybody's gotta make a sacrifice
So he replaced the old girl for a boat named Jen
He thought if anyone could love her
Well he was the man

He said my only fear is growing old alone
I've gotta get a lover for this telephone
It doesn't matter if my number's gone when I'm young
But I don't want to grow old alone

Till the day Jen sunk she gave him love so true
She was appraised at fifty-one grand or two
It didn't matter that she took every dime that he had
He had to get off the water and live by the land

He said my only fear is growing old alone
I've gotta get a lover for this telephone
It doesn't matter if my number's gone when I'm young
But I don't want to grow old alone

When I spoke about Jen a tear flowed from his eye
It was the first and last time I saw a grown man cry
He said believe it or not I'm not scared to die
But I don't want to grow old alone

He said my only fear is growing old alone
I've gotta get a lover for this telephone
It doesn't matter if my number's gone when I'm young
But I don't want to grow old alone
