Daddy worked down in the coal mine
And mamma worked hard at the mill
Well I know it sounds like an old line but
I tried and I always will

Now that I've grown up to be a man
The only thing I've learned is don't give a damn
My folks are getting older, and their time ain't long
Well they're both getting old and their time ain't long

Time ain't long
Time ain't long
Time ain't long

I never went much for schooling
Maybe that's just because
I couldn't take all their fooling
Good boy, I never was

Ain't got all that much to say
If you need to pass the time a day
Spend it with me because my time ain't long
Well you know you can spend your time with me

Time ain't long
Time ain't long
Time ain't long

Well, people we all been screaming
About what is right or wrong
I used to spend my time dreaming
Now all I do is sing my song

If you need some liberty
Be anything that you wanna be
But get moving soon, because your time ain't long
Well you better move soon because your time ain't long

Time ain't long
Time ain't long
Time ain't long

I believe my time, believe my time
I believe my time ain't long
I believe my time, believe my time
Believe my time ain't long
I believe my time, believe my time
Believe my time ain't long
I believe my time, believe my time
Believe my time ain't long

Time ain't long
Time ain't long
(You can't stop it)
Time ain't long
(You can't stop it)

Time ain't long
(You can't fight it)
Time ain't long
(You can't fight it)
Time ain't long
(You can't take it)

Time ain't long
(You can try to stop it)
Time ain't long
(You can't steal it)
Time ain't long
