I'm Tired Joey Boy

This song is by Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers and appears on the compilation box set Playback (1995).

This song is a cover of "I'm Tired Joey Boy" by Van Morrison.
I'm tired Joey Boy while you're out with the sheep
My life is so troubled I can't go to sleep
And I would walk myself out but the streets are so dark
I will wait 'til the morning and walk in the park

Yeah life is so simple when one isn't home
And I'm never complaining when there's work to be done
Oh I'm tired Joey Boy with the makings of men
I would like to be cheerful again

And ambition will take you and ride you too far
And conservatism will bring you to boredom once more
So go out by the river watch the stream flow
Recall all those dreams you once used to know
The ones you've forgotten that took you away
To pastures not greener but meaner

Yeah the love of the simple is all that I need
I have no time for schism or lovers of greed
Go up to the mountain go up to the glen
Where silence will touch you and heartbreak will mend
