Time Don't Pass by Here
by The Marshall Tucker Band

Last night I dreamed I laid me down and died
And lots of people came and signed their name
But only a few of them cried

They put me in a big pine box
And dropped me in a deep dark hole
And the preacher said a prayer for my lost soul
Well they covered me up and left me there to rot

And the guy next to me said, "Friend, I see
That's a mighty fine box you've got"
He seemed kind of friendly

So I asked him the time of day
I heard him laughing
Then I know I heard the devil say

Time don't pass by here no more
Just empty space and fear
No plane to fly, no wine to pour
Only pain to replace the tears

You can never recall your memories
You can never retrace the years
You'll cry but no one hears
'Cause time don't pass by here

Well, I woke up
And wiped a tear away from my eye
And me and Mary Jane made a paper plane
Just to see how high we'd fly

She's just like each passing day
She's there and then she's gone
And I'm the one that's always gettin' stoned

Seems it's hard for me to find where I belong
But I think that I'm the happiest
When I'm singing the saddest songs

When it comes my turn to die
And when I'm really gone
I hope the devil writes these words
Upon my tombstone

Time don't pass by here no more
Just empty space and fear
No plane to fly, no wine to pour
Only pain to replace the tears

You can never recall your memories
You can never retrace the years
You'll cry but no one hears
'Cause time don't pass by here

You'll cry but no one hears
'Cause time don't pass by here

Never paid enough attention to this song. Moving up on my MTB scale. Never get enough of these guys.

Brad Church

It is great Lenny.  I'm just paying more attention to Time Passing since I'm 62 and wish I was 22.  I've been a big fan since they started and its great listening to their music 40 years later.

This is exact the music which I`m searching in Germany in the late seventies ans early eighties. Thanks for the Internet and I`m glad to found MTB as late as well. Because when I had found it earlier, it would cost all my money to buy them records :-)

Walter Talbert

Comes a time when we must think about this.....
