Hi, John - Sing Out! did have the song, v.35#1 ... p.42. My collection doesn't go back that far. Does anybody have that issue, and can you post what they say about the song?
-Joe Offer-

From Joe Offer, 29 May 2017: Generous souls have helped me to almost complete my Sing Out! collection. Here are the lyrics from v.35#1 ... p.42. Except for punctuation, they are exactly the same as what's in the Digital Tradition.

(Harkins Freye)

Time has made a change since my childhood days;
Many of my friends have gone away.
Some I never more in this life will see.
Time has made a change in me.

In my childhood days, I was well and strong;
I could climb the hillside all day long.
I am not today what I used to be.
Time has made a change in me.

When I reach my home in that land somewhere,
With my friends who wait to meet me over there,
Free from pain and care I'll forever be.
Time has made a change in me.

Transcribed from the singing of Peter and Mary Alice Amidon. The song was written by Harkins Freye, a West Virginia native who wrote and published gospel music in the 1920s.
