no time to kill lyrics – agony column

momma died
i was denied
of the love that a child needs
an’ i was born
in the town by the city
where the pain and the hate breeds

but i learned to love myself
and now i will
cause there’s no time
no time to kill
now love does my will

like a black man
trapped like a slave
king cotton grows as high as the sky
an’ the master says
fill my bag
and it must be a mile wide

but i learned to love you good
and now i will
cause there’s no time
no time to kill
now love does my will

later days i changed my ways
and in the end i won
a victory unto myself
where before well i had none

and i learned to love you good
and now i will
cause there’s no time
no time to kill
now love does my will
