StEEmit Open Mic week 100 "Funny How Time Slips Away" - Willie Nelson/cover by @gibber

in #openmic3 years ago (edited)

Written and performed by the great Willie Nelson... covered by: Perry Como, The Supremes, Elvis, Al Green, The Spinners, Lyle Lovett, BB King, Bobby Bland, George Jones, Juice Newton & Glen Campbell.. among others. This was one of the very first Willie songs. I broke out an old nylon string guitar and a hand shaker in honor of him. I hope you enjoy.

Lyrics

"Funny How Time Slips Away"

Well, hello there
My, it's been a long, long time
How am I doing?
Oh, I guess that I'm doing fine
It's been so long now
But it seems now, that it was only yesterday
Gee, ain't it funny, how time slips away

How's your new love?
I hope that he's doing fine
I heard you told him
That you'd love him till the end of time
Now, that's the same thing that you told me
Seems like just the other day
Gee, ain't it funny, how time slips away

I gotta go now
I guess I'll see you around
Don't know when though
Never know, when I'll be back in town
But remember, what I tell you
In time you're gonna pay
And it's surprising, how time slips away..
