ain’t wasting time no more lyrics – allman brors

last sunday morning, the sunshine felt like rain
week before, they all seemed the same
with the help of god and true friends, i come to realize
i still had two strong legs and even wings to fly

and oh, i ain’t wastin’ time no more
’cause time goes by like hurricanes
and faster things

lord, lord miss sally, why are you cryin’?
been around here three long days, lookin’ like you’re dyin’
just step yourself outside and look up at the stars above
go on downtown, baby, find somebody to love

but meanwhile i ain’t wastin’ time no more
’cause time goes by like pouring rain
and much faster things

you don’t need no gypsy to tell you why
you can’t let one precious day to slip by
look inside yourself and if you don’t see what you want
maybe sometimes then you don’t
but leave your mind alone and just get high

well, by and by, way after many years have gone
and all the war freaks die off leavin’ us alone
we’ll raise our children in the peaceful way we can
it’s up to you and me, brother, to try and try again

to hear us now, we ain’t wastin’ time no more
’cause time goes by like hurricanes
runnin’ after subway trains
don’t forget the pouring rain
