it
Jimmie Rodgers Lyrics


If time were not a moving thing
And I could make it stay
This hour of love we share would always be

There'd be no coming day
To shine a morning light
To make us realize our night is over

When you walk away from me
There is no place to put my hand
Except to shade my eyes
Against the sun that rises over the land

I watch you walk away
Somehow if have to let you go
Now it's over

If you knew just how I really feel
You might return and yet
There are so many times
That people have to love and then forget

Though there might have been a way
I have to force myself to say
It's over

So I turn my back
Turn my collar to the wind
Move along in silence
Trying not to think at all

I send my feet before me
Walk the silent street before me
It's over

If time were not a moving thing
And I could make it stay
This hour of love we share would always be

There'd be no coming day
To shine a morning light
To make us realize our night is over

It's over

I can't listen to Jimmy without crying. It brings back memories of our life in the 1930s at the end of the Great Depression. I remember being grateful for meals of grits with a little salt, of white blocks of oleo margarine that we sprinkled the yellow powder into so it would look like butter. I remember the milk bottles on our front porch with the cardboard caps and the cream floating at the top. I recall the ice box with the drip pan under it and the scrubbing board. Too many memories to list here. Nobody has time to read that much.

Heard the stories from my grandparents and my dad of life on their farm in Canada. Sure wasn’t easy, but people were tough back then,and did what it took.

I am 80 years old, and I've never heard a better recording of Waiting for a Train. My Dad used to sing this song to me when I was a little boy. This song brings back many good memories of my Dad. Thanks for the post.
