Well hello there! Its been a long long time.
How you doin' how you doin'? Well I guess I am doin fine. Its been soo long and it seems like it was only yesturday. Ain't it funny how time slips away?

Well how is your new love? I hope he is doin' fine.
I heard you told him that you'll love him till the end of time
Now thats the same thing you told me it seems like just the other day
Ain't it funny how time slips away?

I am going to go now and i guess I will see you around but I don't know when though
I don't know when or if i will be back in time
Just remember what I tell you, in time your going to pay! Ain't it funny how time slips away?
Ohh its surprising how time slips away
Just sittin in the back of the bay watching the time roll away.
Ain't it funny how time slips away?

    General CommentThis song is so awesome. I love how Dave played it for the Willie Nelson Special!!!!!! I think it's about a girl who tells a guy that she will love him forever and wait etc. and then forever became to long so she moved on and he came back and found out so now he has nothing there so he might as well keep going.

    General CommentThis is a beautiful cover ... I saw DMB play it live ... and was blown away. I have to admit, though, my favorite version is the Al Green one ... check it out if you're interested.

    General CommentI was listening to Willie Nelson before I was born and have been a fan ever since. More recently I became a huge DMB fan. I thought it was cool that Dave became the fourth board member for Willie's charity organization, Farm Aid (along with Neil Young and Jon Mellencamp), and the only one added since it was founded in 1985. And it's even cooler that the two are good friends. I love Dave's take on this song. He shares Willie's ability to take someone else's tune and make it his own. I honestly think that anyone who is a fan of Dave's music would love Willie as well. They share many common attributes. This is a special cover.
