Hmmm. I have to teach Sorcha about right-clicking. This is from the page Sorcha linked to, Buffy Sainte-Marie's home page, http://www.creative-native.com

UNTIL IT'S TIME FOR YOU TO GO
Buffy Sainte-Marie
© Gypsy Boy Music-SOCAN

This song popped into my head while I was falling in love with someone I knew couldn't stay with me. The words are about honesty and freedom inside the heart. The following people recorded "Until It's Time For You To Go", each in his or her own way, and I sure feel honoured: Elvis Presley, Barbara Streisand, Neil Diamond, Arthur Fiedler and the Boston Pops Orchestra, Roberta Flack, Bobby Darin, and many more. Thanks.


You're not a dream
You're not an angel
You're a man

I'm not a queen
I'm a woman
Take my hand

We'll make a space
in the lives
that we'd planned

And here we'll stay
Until it's time
for you to go

Yes we're different
Worlds apart
We're not the same

We laughed and played
at the start
like in a game

You could've stayed
outside my heart
but in you came

And here you'll stay
until it's time
for you to go

Don't ask why
Don't ask how
Don't ask forever
Love me now

This love of mine
had no beginning
It has no end

I was an oak
Now I'm a willow
Now I can bend

And though I'll never
in my life
see you again

Still I'll stay
until it's time
for you to go

Don't ask why
Don't ask how
Don't ask forever
Love me now

You're not a dream
You're not an angel
You're a man

I'm not a queen
I'm a woman
Take my hand

We'll make a space
in the lives
that we'd planned

And here we'll stay
Until it's time
for you to go.

first recorded by Buffy Sainte-Marie in 1965

Also in the DT here. That entry and several threads come up if you enter "time for you to go" in the "Digitrad and Forum Search" box in the upper left of the main page.

You got me on that one, Desert Dancer. I searched for "until it's time," and I was surprised that it didn't come up. Anyhow, looks like it would be good to tag this one for DTStudy indexing. The version I got from Buffy Ste. Marie's site shouuld be correct, and we have a few places where there are "words that tear and strain to rhyme." Here's the DT version. Note that the tune is missing in the DT.
The DT lyrics have a few discrepancies from what I hear on an early recording from Buffy Ste. Marie, so I'll post a corrected version below. Corrections are in bold

YOU'RE NOT A DREAM (UNTIL IT'S TIME FOR YOU TO GO)(DT Lyrics)
(Buffy Ste. Marie)

You're not a dream, you're not an angel, you're a man
I'm not a queen, I'm a woman, take my hand
We'll make a place in this life that we've planned
And here we'll stay, until it's time for you to go

Yes, we're different, we're worlds apart, we're not the same
We laughed and played, from the start, as in a game
You could have stayed outside my heart, but in you came
Here you'll stay until it's time for you to go

Don't ask how of me, don't ask why
Don't ask forever
Love me, love me now

This love of mine, it has no beginning, it has no end
I was an oak, now I'm a willow, now I can bend
And though I'll never, in my life, see you again
Her I'll stay until it's time for you to go
UNTIL IT'S TIME FOR YOU TO GO (corrected)
(Buffy Ste. Marie)

You're not a dream, you're not an angel, you're a man
I'm not a queen, I'm a woman, take my hand
We'll make a space in the lives that we planned
And here we'll stay, until it's time for you to go

Yes, we're different, [we're] worlds apart, we're not the same
We laughed and played at the start, like in a game
You could've stayed outside my heart, but in you came
And here you'll stay until it's time for you to go

Don't ask why. Don't ask how.
Don't ask forever.
Love me [love me] now

This love of mine had no beginning, it has no end
I was an oak, now I'm a willow, now I can bend
And though I'll never, in my life, see you again
Still I'll stay until it's time for you to go

The recording repeats the chorus and the first verse somewhat differently:
    Don’t ask why of me, don’t ask how of me
    Don’t ask forever of me:
    Love me; love me now.

    You’re not a dream, you’re not an angel, you’re a man
    I’m not a queen, I’m a woman, take my hand
    We’ll make a space in the lives that we planned
    And here we’ll stay until it’s time for you to go.

I think the above is Buffy's original Vanguard recording. The sound quality is not very good, which may be why she re-recorded the song in recent years:

This song was generally done in a rather melodramatic and overwrought way when it was covered by various other singers, but Buffy does it simply and beautifully and makes it sound real (which it was, for her). She also did a torch singer version of it in French that was pretty neat, with an entirely different approach...in French it sounds good that way.

It's a song that sounds a bit awkward when sung by a male...the lyrics aren't really set up right for that, and there's no very good way of fixing it IMO.

It's got a pretty interesting chord structure.

Subject: Buffy Sainte-Marie lyrics & chords
From: GUEST,Vivian
Date: 29 Jul 03 - 04:33 PM

Am looking for lyrics and music to "Welcome, Welcome, Emigrante" and "Seeds of Brotherhood." She was so-oo-o ahead of her time. Thank you to Little Hawk for your posts. I didn't know that Buffy got blacklisted and spyed upon by the FBI in the 60's etc. That doesn't surprise me though--what else is new! I have all her old albums. However, I will never figure out the chords myself. Hope some of you more talented people will get ahold of her music, and bring it back!!! to the world because we need it, that's what folk music is all about. Vivian

from Little Hawk: It's a song that sounds a bit awkward when sung by a male...the lyrics aren't really set up right for that, and there's no very good way of fixing it IMO.

When I sing it I just alter the first two lines

I'm not a dream, I'm not an angel, I'm a man
You're not a queen, you're a woman, take my hand

This seems to work quite well.

And I agree about the chords; they are really interesting.

From Casey Casebeer:

The French version of Until It’s Time For You To Go

“T’es pas un autre”   
French translation by Quebec songwriter Claude Gauthier 1967
Sainte-Marie recorded it on her album Fire and Fleet & Candlelight


T’es pas un autre, t’es un homme, mon homme a moi
J’suis pas un autre, j’suis une femme, ta femme a toi
Et cet amour, qui voit le jour, entre nos bras
Restera notre, jusu’au jour tu partiras

Tu viens d’ailleurs, je suis jeudi, tu es dimanche
J’aime les fleurs, toi la pluie, et les nuits blanches
Tu es venue, d’ailleurs, je ne t’attendais plus
Et tu es à moi, jusqu’au jour ou tu partiras


BRIDGE:
Ne me demande pas comment, ne me demande pas pourquoi
Dis-moi seulement, “je t’aime, mon amour”

Ce grand amour, qui veut être, le premier
Ce grand amour, qui veut être le dernier
Fragile aux pluies comme le cœur d'un saule-pleureur   weep-willow
Pleurera à l'heure où tu partiras

BRIDGE:
Ne me demande pas comment, ne me demande pas pourquoi
Dis-moi seulement "je t'aime, mon amour”

T'es pas un autre, t'es un homme, mon homme à moi
J'suis pas une autre, j'suis une femme, ta femme à toi
Et cet amour qui voit le jour entre nos bras
Restera nôtre, jusqu'au jour où tu partiras
Restera nôtre, jusqu'au jour où tu partiras
