Maybe the juke box can heal up a heartache
But I'd go into debt
Maybe the whiskey can wipe out a memory
But it only hurts my head
Maybe some dancing will pick me up
But the best songs always ends
Now I'm down and telling myself
Time is a fools best friend.

Chorus:
Doctor time, have mercy on me
Don't wait too long to set me free
Doctor time, I'm counting on you
Cause your the only one
Who can pull me through

Friends tell me hard work can fill up the hours
But it don't fill this bed
A quarter says a phone call can bring forgiveness
She'd hang up again
Gotta find something to forget her
Everytime I lay down
There ain't a night goes by I don't wish
I'd wake up a year from now

Chorus:
Doctor time, have mercy on me
Don't wait too long to set me free
Doctor time, I'm counting on you
Cause your the only one
Who can pull me through

Time tell the truth your the only one I trust
How many weeks until I leave this heartache in the dust

Chorus:
Doctor time, have mercy on me
Don't wait too long to set me free
Doctor time, I'm counting on you
Cause your the only one
Who can pull me through
