song title:Those Old Times
date: 1998-06-01
song notes:My most recorded song
lyrics: 

I said I'd set out and I'd do it with a smile
but say the word and I will wait a little while.
I said I'd stay with you and go the extra mile
but did I set out wrong, did I stand by and wait too long?

I ain't saying it ain't what I want to do.
If I had my way this old house would be brand new
I ain't saying now that I can't be with you
But I think I can find a way to help make up my mind

Chorus:
I listen for a sound and I listen for a sign
I listen to the ground beneath me fall away behind
I'm wishing that I'd found a way to make it all unwind
I'm missing that old town and I am missing those old times

What has come to you and what has come to pass
is all a part of one long road that goes too fast
Who can make a new love strong enough to last
Who is on my side and am I keeping my eyes wide open

Chorus:
To listen for a sound and I listen for a sign
To listen to the ground beneath me fall away behind
I'm wishing that I'd found a way to make it all unwind
I'm missing that old town and I am missing those old times
