Sixty-five Years Old

Sixty-five years old, she had lots of friends
One grand-daughter five grandsons
Workin like a man, way beyond her means
A woman’s work is never done

She was tired, she lay down
And died in her sleep
Helpin’ everyone all along the way
Tryin’ to get up to God

Made a lot of beds, washed a lot of floors
Just to keep the children fed
All along the way helpin’ everyone
Tryin’ to get up to God
