Father Time
Lyrics by William Lake, Music by William Crouch and William Lake

CHORUS1:
Father Time can I buy Just a little extra time
I'm not a sinner or a saint just a man that made mistakes
I could use a little time to set a few things straight
Father Time Father Time can I buy just a little extra time

Verse 1
Like the night my Mama passed, I was singing in a bar
So full of myself a so called rising Star
I was listening to applause when she drew her last breath
let me hold my mommas hand and lay my mama to rest

CHORUS2:
Father Time can I buy just a little extra time
I'm not a sinner or a saint just a man that made mistakes
I could use a little time to set a few things straight
Father Time Father Time can I buy just a little bit of time

Verse 2:
Like the night I sold my six string for some whiskey and some pot
The lights of music row had turned me from the truth
I had sold my soul to Nashville and they threw it down a hole
Then I crawled into the Gutter To See How Low I Could Go

CHORUS3:
Father Time can I buy just a little extra time
I'm not a sinner or a saint just a man that made mistakes
I could use a little time to set a few things straight
Father Time Father Time can I buy just a little bit of time

Verse 3:

Father Time Can you sell me just a little bit of Dust
My hourglass is empty an I'm in a little rush
The Days getting DArker I'm feeling Kind of Lost
I thought we had a deal but the clock is just speeding up

CHORUS4:
Father Time can I buy just a little extra time
I'm not a sinner or A saint just a man that made mistakes
I could use a little time to set a few things straight
Father Time Father Time can I buy just a little bit of time
just a little bit of time
just a little bit of time
End:
