Johnny Cash – Funny How Time Slips Away lyrics

Well, hello there

My, it's been a long, long, long time
How am I doin'? Oh, I guess that I'm doin' fine
It's been so long now but it seems now
That it was only yesterday

G, ain't it funny how time slips away

And how's your new love, well, I hope that he's doin' fine
And I heard you told him that you'd love him til' the end of time
Now that's the same thing that you told me
And it seems like only yesterday

G, ain't it funny how time just slips away

Oh, I've got to go now, thank you, and I guess I'll see you around
But I don't know when though
'Cause I never know when I'll be back in town
But remember what I tell you that in time you're gonna pay

And it's surprising how time just slips away
G, ain't it funny how time just slips away
