"Funny How Time Slips Away" as written by and Willie Nelson....
Well, hello there
My, it's been a long, long time
How am I doin'?
Oh, well, I guess I'm doin' fine
It's been so long now and it seems that
It was only yesterday
Mmm, ain't it funny how time slips away?

How's your new love?
I hope that he's doin' fine
Heard you told him, yes, baby
That you'd love him till the end of time
Well, you know, that's the same thing
That you told me
Well, it seems like just the other day
Mmm, ain't it funny how time slips away

Yeah, baby
Yeah

I gotta go now
Guess I'll see you hanging round
Don't know when though, oh, no
Never know when I'll be back in town
But I remember what I told you
That in time you're gonna pay

Well ain't it surprisin' how time slips away?
Yeah, ain't it surprisin' how time slips away?

    General CommentA counbtry song, and interesting song about a guy who runs into an old love. She seems to be acting like she is sort of rubbing it in his face that she has someone new but then he jabs back with, "How's your new love,
    I hope that he's doin' fine
    Heard you told him, yes baby
    That you'd love him till the end of time
    Well you know, that's the same thing
    that you told me
    Well it seems like just the other day..." She obviuosly told him the same thing and now they are apart.

    And of course, how time slips away and how maybe he took their break uo hard, but now, he's fine, never better, time heals some wounds.
