NO TIME TO KILL (Clint Black & Hayden Nicholas)
-----------------------------------------------
[If there are mistakes with respect to the order of verses, the timing,
 etc., let me know; I don't have a recording of the song, so I'm not sure
 where everything goes.]
[Thanks to dax@GAS.uug.Arizona.EDU for typing out the lyrics.]

E  A(9)/E  E7no3  A(9)/E
[intro; repeat as necessary]

E                  A(9)/E             E7no3          A(9)/E
There's no time to kill between the cradle and the grave
        E                  A(9)/E        E7no3           A(9)/E
Father Time still takes a toll on every minute that you save
       A              D(9)/A          A7no3           D(9)/A
Legal tender's never gonna change the number on your days
             E               A(9)/E           E7no3       A(9)/E
The highest cost of livin's dyin', that's one everybody pays
   Cmaj7            Cmaj7            B            B
So have it spent before you get the bill, there's no time to kill
E  A(9)/E  E7no3  A(9)/E
[turnaround]

If we'd known ten years ago today would be ten years from now
Would we spend tomorrow's yesterday and make it last somehow
Or lead the cheers in someone else's game and never learn to play
And see the rules of thumb are all the same that measure every day
The grass is green on both sides of the hill, there's no time to kill

            A          D(9)/A          A                D(9)/A
No time to kill, even I've said it and probably always will
    A            D(9)/A            A                    D(9)/A
But I can look ahead and see that time ain't standin' still
            E               A(9)/E             E               A(9)/E
No time to kill but time to change the kind of hurry I've been in
    E                   A(9)/E       E                   A(9)/E
And quit this work and worry lookin' back at where I've been
   Cmaj7           Cmaj7        B            B
If you don't look ahead nobody will, there's no time to kill
E  A(9)/E  E  A(9)/E
[turnaround]

If we had an hourglass to watch each one go by
Or a bell to mark each one to pass, we'd see just how they fly
Would we escalate the value to be worth its weight in gold
Or would we never know the fortunes that we had till we grow old
Or do we just keep killin' time until there's no time to kill

No time to kill, even I've said it and probably always will
But I can look ahead and see that time ain't standin' still
No time to kill but time to change the kind of hurry I've been in
And quit this work and worry lookin' back at where I've been
If you don't look ahead nobody will, there's no time to kill

No time to kill, even I've said it and probably always will
But I can look ahead and see that time ain't standin' still
No time to kill but time to change the kind of hurry I've been in
And quit this work and worry lookin' back at where I've been
If you don't look ahead nobody will, there's no time to kill
            E   A(9)/E   E   A(9)/E
No time to kill                    [repeat several times]
