"Taking My Time" as written by and Reynolds Reeves....
I've lived a lot in my time (I've lived a lot in my time)
I once had a mansion and lived in my glory but now I'm down to my last dime
I had a sweetheart but I was unfaithful oh I've lived a lot in my time
I bought the green reaper down in the dark valley I prayed when the sun wouldn't shine
I've looked through the bars of a cold lonely prison oh I've lived a lot in my time

I've been a soldier and I've been a rambler once thought that everything was fine
I've hold in the cornfields I've picked in the cotton yes I've lived a lot in my time
I've walked with our Master down in the dark valley and wonderful peace I did find
Someday I'll journey to heat and green pastures yes I've lived a lot in my time
