Merle Haggard - No Time To Cry Lyrics

sponsored links
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
