Well, you heard about
the Great Pretender?
I went to see him
and he's not the same
Down by the club
on the parking lot cinders
I was to meet him
and play his game.
Yonder stands the sinner
He calls my name
without a sound.

I saw his face in
the attic window
Yelling down
through the broken pane
Sinner man!
What you got to run for?
Church bells rang
when he said that name.
Yonder stands the sinner
He calls my name
without a sound.

Well, I was about as scared
as I could be.
I went and hid
behind the nearest tree.
Peeked out
from behind the branches.
Sinner!
Yonder stands the sinner
He calls my name
without a sound
To get down.

I guess you heard about
the Great Pretender?
I went to see him
and he's not the same.
I guess you heard about
the Great Pretender?
I went to see him
and he's not the same.

    General Commenthe calls my name without a SOUND!

    This song is ballin in the mix... I found Time Fades away on Vinyl at Half Price Books last month and in pretty good condition (only "Journey Through the Past" has a distinct popping sound throughout).
