The singer would be Alan Jackson. Love that song. Typifies how with love present, growing old with some one you love isn't near as bad as it could be.

"September Song"

by Jimmy Durante. I think this the best version of this song.

Not ever a mainstream song, but really quite sweet: Simon and Garfunkel's "Old Friends". "Can you imagine us years from today, sharing a park bench quietly? How terribly strange to be seventy."

 

Even more obscure: Jacues Brel's "Les Vieux" ("The Old Folks")
