Crooked Piece of Time [John Prine]

 

APPEARS ON


It's a crooked piece of time
That we live in
All in all and all in all
It's a crooked piece of time

It's a crooked piece of time
That we're livin' in
All in all and all in all
It's a crooked piece of time

Things got rough
Things got tough
Things got harder than hard
We was just tryin' to make a living
In our own back yard
We're born too late
We die too soon
Anxiety's a terrible crime
If you can't come now
Don't come at all
It's a crooked piece of time

It's a crooked piece of time
That we're livin' in
All in all and all in all
It's a crooked piece of time

It's a crooked piece of time
That we're livin' in
All in all and all in all
It's a crooked piece of time

Yesterday morning an ill wind came
Blew your picture right out of the picture frame
Even blew the candle out from underneath the flame
Yesterday morning an ill wind came

It's a crooked piece of time
That we're livin' in
All in all and all in all
It's a crooked piece of time

It's a crooked piece of time
That we're livin' in
All in all and all in all
It's a crooked piece of time

It's a crooked piece of time
That we're livin' in
All in all and all in all

Things got rough
Things got tough
Things got harder than hard
We was just tryin' to make a living
In our back yard
