“Time Runnin’ Me Down” by Lou Shields

Time is a runnin’ me down, he found old me
Runnin’ me down a little more each day
Gunnin’ me down and I can’t get away

I’ve been a livin’ this life, traveled the world I say
Finally found a place I can stay
Still I have some ramblin’ left in me

Lived through that mean old strife, live the good life today
Gotta keep a rollin’ down I say
Old Father Time is breathin’ down on me

Yes the past is gone away, livin’ for today
Livin’ right now, hey hey
If tomorrow comes, I’m a lucky I say

Yes I’m a rollin down, feelin’ fine today
And you’s a right next to me
Rollin’ on through come on and roll on down with me

Last chance at this good ol’ life, won’t pass by me
Time is runnin’ me down and he won’t let me be
I’ll spend the rest with you next to me, gal
