C G F CTo me, Old Man, your time is rare,
Am C GDid God not give you all my sand?
F C Am GOr maybe mine I had to share
F G COr is there some left in your hand?
Am G F AmThey tell me time is gold, well maybe it's been sold,
C GOr was it simply washed away in rain?
Am F C GWith a careful hand, he tends the sand,
F G COh, Old Man Time is his name.
Am GIf I brought him a sack,
F AmDo you think he'd put some back?
C GI know one day across my path he'll come,
