If life is like a candle bright,
death must be the wind,
And you can close your window tight,
but it still comes flowing in;
So I will climb the highest hill
and watch the rising sun,
I pray that I don't feel the chill
till I'm too old to die young.

Let me watch my children grow
to see what they become,
Oh Lord, don't let that cold wind blow
till I'm too old to die young.

Now, I have had some dear sweet friends
I thought would never die,
Now the only thing that's left of them
is the teardrop in my eye;
If I could have one wish today
and know it would be done,
Well, I would say everyone could stay
till they're too old to die young.

Let me watch my children grow
to see what they become,
Oh Lord, don't let that cold wind blow
till I'm too old to die young.

Let me watch my children grow
to see what they become,
Oh Lord, don't let that cold wind blow
till I'm too old to die young.

From Wikipedia:
Marion Franklin Bandy, Jr - known professionally as Moe Bandy (b.1944), is a country music singer from Meridian, Mississippi, hometown of the country singer Jimmie Rodgers. He was most popular during the 1970s, when he had several hit songs, both alone and with his singing partner, Joe Stampley. This song was recorded in 1987 as Till I'm Too Old to Die Young, on the flip side of You Haven't Heard the Last of Me, and rose to #6 on the US Country charts, and #10 on Canadian Country charts. It was also the title track of Bandy's 2005 album from Pegasus Records.

The video above features Eldred Mesher's cover variant of Moe Bandy's original song recorded live on YouTube in 2013 by Eldred, Wayne and Theodore Mesher.
