No Time To Cry Lyrics

My father died
A year ago today
The rooster started crowing
When they carried dad away.

There beside my mother
In the livingroom, I stood
With my brother and my sister
Knowin' dad was gone for good.

Then I, I hung around
Just long enough to lay him in the ground
Then I caught a plane to do a show
Up north in Detroit town.

Because I'm older now and I ain't got not time to cry
I got no time to look back, I got no time to see
The pieces of my heart
That have been ripped away from me.

And if the feelings start to come in
I've learned to stop them fast
'Cause I don't know if I let em go
They might not wanna pass.

And there's just so many people
Tryin to get me on the phone
And there's bills to pay and songs to play
And a house to make a home.

I guess I'm older now and I ain't got not time to cry
I can still remember before I heard of Merle
So many things have changed
So much here in my world.

I remember sitting on the front porch
When an ambulance drove by
Just listening to those sirens
I would break down and cry.

Now, I'm walkin' and I'm talkin'
Doin' just what I'm supposed to do
Working overtime to make sure
I don't come unglued.

Because I'm older now and I ain't got not time to cry
I sit down on the sofa and I watch the evening news
There's a half-a-dozen tragedies
From which to pick and choose.

The baby that was missing
Was found in a ditch today
And there's bombs flying
And people dying not so far away.

I'll take a beer from the fridgerator
And sit in the yard
With a cold one in my hand
I'm gonna bite down and swallow hard.

Because I'm older now
And I ain't got not time to cry.

Its true

I'm older now
Just ain't got not time to cry.
No time to cry.
No time to cry...
