Funny How Time Slips Away
B.B. King Lyrics

Well hello there
My, it's been a long long time
How am I doin'
Oh well, I guess I'm doin' fine
It's been so long now and it seems that
It was only yesterday
Ain't it funny how time slips away

How's your new love
I hope that he's doin' fine
Heard you told him, yes baby
That you'd love him till the end of time
Well you know, that's the same thing
That you told me
Well, it seems like just the other day
Ain't it funny how time slips away

Gotta go now
Guess I'll see you hanging round
Don't know when though
Never know when I'll be back in town
But I remember what I told you
That in time you're gonna pay

Well ain't it surprisin' how time slips away
Yeah, ain't it surprisin' how time slips away

had to... love this song :)


I love these guys, and I love this tune, which I consider to be Willie Nelson's masterpiece ("Crazy" notwithstanding), and the King makes Lucille sing a great chorus...
...but Bobby's phrasing cuts B.B.'s here.


RIP BB. Thank you for that beautiful music

Heard this on B.B. king's Blue station and I came close to crying about relationships with people that are no longer living that I missed out on.

I use to sit for hours and list to big Bobby Blue Bland at the club on hwy 43, love his music.
