Time Is Drawing Near - Sleepy John Estes
Robert Lee McCoy, guitar in C position

Now, it used to be the time, be gettin' two bucks a day
But now we gettin' fifty cent, run 'em down for ['alf our] pay
CHORUS: Time, time is drawring near
Now, can't you see? More and more ev'y year

Now, I 'member back in time, 'fore we got grown
We daren't let sundown catch us away from home
CHORUS: Time, time is drawring near
Now, can't you see? More and more ev'y year

Now, my mother used to say, "The sign will be."
We couldn't tell summer from winter, no more by the budding of the trees
CHORUS: Time, time is drawring near
Now, can't you see? More and more ev'y year

Now, it used to be the time, get a corn crop in March
But now we can't get one in June, and neither July
CHORUS: Time, time is drawring near
Now, can't you see? More and more ev'y year

Now, used to go to the church, just to work for soul
But now we go, talk about one another's clothes
CHORUS: Time, time is drawring near
Now, can't you see? More and more ev'y year
