Thin Lizzy

Thin Lizzy are an Irish rock band formed in Dublin in 1969. Two of the founding members, drummer Brian Downey and bass guitarist/vocalist Phil Lynott, met while still in school. Lynott assumed the role of frontman and led them throughout their recording career of twelve studio albums. Thin Lizzy are best known for their songs "Whiskey in the Jar", "Jailbreak" and "The Boys Are Back in Town", all major international hits still played regularly on hard rock and classic rock radio stations. After Lynott's death in 1986, various incarnations of the band have emerged over the years based around guitarists Scott Gorham and John Sykes, though Sykes left the band in 2009. more »

Father and I waved goodbye
As we went to look
Uncle Peter was writing a book
And his mama was starting to cook
And she's aging

We had come in search of one
Who evades us all
Never heeds the call
If only someone could stall
This aging

So I'll go and hope and know
That my time is near
Laughing through the years
Having only fears
Of aging, of aging
