I did a search and was surprised I did not find this song. I was another of my favorite "folk" songs. The county singer Don Williams was in this group.

TIME
Pozo-Seco Singers
Written By M. Merchant

Some people run. Some people crawl.
Some people don't even move at all.
Some roads lead forwards. Some roads lead back.
Some roads are bathed in light; some wrapped in fearful black.

Time, O time, where did you go?
Time, O good, good time, where did you go?
Sometimes I'm satisfied. Sometimes I'm not.
Sometimes my face is cold. Sometimes it's hot.
Sunset, I laugh. Sunrise, I cry.
At midnight, I'm in between, wondering why.
Time, O time, where did you go?
Time, O good, good time, where did you go?
Time, O time, where did you go?
Time, O good, good time, where did you go?

To clarify, I did not find the lyrics posted, but I did see discussions about the song.

Thanks for posting this; the chart information is interesting, and the lyrics seem like a nice, reasonably standard memory song. I only wish I knew the tune.

Agreed!

Great song, thanks for posting the lyrics. I did a program in a prison in New England a number of year and used this song, modified to fit the discussion. Some of the men had heard the original song, all loved it. Time was an important "talking point" to these guys.

Other members of the group,

Lofton Kline and Susan Taylor, now called Taylor Pie are still out there performing.

I've met Lofton, and played a bit of music with him (some recording and a couple of shows in Corpus Christi TX). He's a really great guy. He has an absolutley beautiful voice, a good stage presence and he is consumate pro. It was an honor to work with him. I've heard good things about Talyor Pie, but I haven't met her.

All three were recently inducted into the Texas Music Hall of Fame.

I recently revisited this oldie. It's a really nice guitar song -- lots of possibilities for different voicings, different rhythms.

eric the red,

My point is: this is a music site that has a good archive and I want to have the lyrics of "Time" archived for anyone to refer to.

The title prefix is Lyr Add:

I would be glad to expand my explanation for you if you so desire.

JedMarum,

Thank you for those links.

I especially like the old B&W photo of the Pozo-Seco Singers.

Subject: Chords Add: Time (Pozo-Seco Singers)
From: Jeremiah McCaw
Date: 11 Aug 06 - 02:05 AM

I've always loved this song. I just picked up my bass & tried to work out the chords. I'll admit that with the "F-C-Dm" walk-down in the chorus, I'm guessing about the 'C' chord. The bass notes are just "f-e-d". Anybody care to review and/or confirm/refute?

I loved and sang this song back in the '60s. Somhow, over the intervening years, my addled brain has attributed it to Cher, though I think I looked through her discography once and didn't find it. My brain confusion is probably caused by another song I sang at the time on a similar subject ("Bang Bang, I Shot You Down" -- at least it was related in my mind).

"Time" occasionally floats to the top of my consciousness and I end up singing it, usually alone in my car. Then it retreats to the dusty corners of my brain.

Thanks for reminding me of the song! I might, if this turns out not to be a cold I'm fighting off, be able to sing it this weekend at a not strictly trad gathering I'm going to.

Linn
