  • the rooster started crowing as they carried dad away
    There beside my mother in the living room i stood
    with my brother and my sister knowing Dad was
    gone for good. Well i stayed around just long
    enough to lay him in the ground, Then i caught a
    plane to do a show up north in Detroit town
    Cause in older now, I aint got no time to cry.

    Ive got no time to look back and ive got no time
    to see, The pieces of my heart that have been
    ripped away from me, And when the feelings start
    to come in, Ive learned to stop'em fast, Cause
    I dont no if i let'em go they might not want to
    pass.And theres so many people trying to get me
    on the phone and theres bills to pay and songs
    to play and a house to make a home, And im older
    now,I aint got no time to cry

    I can still remember, befor there was a MERLE.
    So many things have changed so much here in my
    world, I remember sitting in the backyard when
    an ambulance went by, just listening to those
    sirens, I would break down and cry.. and now Im
    walking and Im talking doing just what im
    supposed to do working overtime to make sure i
    dont come unglued and Im older now, I aint got no
    time to cry.

    I go lay down on the sofa and i watch the evening
    news, Theres a half a dozen tragedies from which
    to pick and choose, The baby that was missing was
    found in a ditch today and theres bombs a flying
    people dying not so far away - ill take a beer
    out of the fridgerator go sit out in the yard
    and with a cold one in my hand im gonna bite down
    and swallow hard cause im older now, I aint got
    no time to cry.

    Its true- I guess im older now
    I aint got no time to cry

    no time to cry

    no time to cry

    no time to cry
