Subject: Lyr/Chord Req: Time is Winding Up- Hazel Dickens
From: AnneMC
Date: 09 May 04 - 06:29 AM

Has anyone the lyrics for "Time is Winding Up" as sung by Hazel Dickens, and is the tune usually in simple chords or in minor keys ? (Helps to enthuse my guitar playing accompanist if i give him some idea of the chords - I don't play guitar myself. )
Thanks,
Anne

They (Hazel, Ginny and Carol-Elizabeth) sound as though they're singing in a modal key - Ami, G and maybe C would be good chords to try out on it.

The old blues-gospel tune "Time Is Winding Up", title used in a speech by Martin Luther King, sung by Otis Thames, is here: Time Is Winding Up

Possibly inspired by the old spiritual. "Time is Drawing Nigh."

It's a great song, but there's not much to the lyrics:

    Time, time, time is winding up.
    Time, time, time is winding up.
    Time, time, time is winding up.
    Your time is winding up.

    Brother, you better be praying
    For time is winding up
    Brother, you better be praying
    For time is winding up
    Brother, you better be praying
    For time is winding up
    Your time is winding up

    Father, you better be praying
    For time is winding up
    Father, you better be praying
    For time is winding up
    Father, you better be praying
    For time is winding up
    Your time is winding up

    Time, time, time is winding up.
    Time, time, time is winding up.
    Time, time, time is winding up.
    Your time is winding up.

    It's on the Rounder Heart of a Singer CD by Hazel Dickens, Carol Elizabeth Jones, and Ginny Hawker. The same recording is on the Rounder O Sister collection.

    It's a "keeper," but the words can be memorized in about 3-1/2 seconds.

There's also a recording by Babe Stovall on Folk Festival of the Smokies, Vol II [that's Two, not Eleven], Traditional Records FFS 529 (vinyl). He sings it at about twice the tempo of the recording on O Sister! And he plays his guitar while holding it behind his head and turning his back to the audience (and the microphones), resulting in what the liner notes refer to as a "compromise in sound quality".
