G
I found it in an old cigar box
                                    Cadd9
A timeless treasure my daddy forgot he put there
   G
A gold faced Elgin pocketwatch
                           Cadd9           ***
He carried in his overalls all those years
      Em                C                G
And I wound it up and I held it up to my ear
      Em             C               D
And I listened as it ticked away the years
       Em                 C                   G                  D
And it took me back there in his lap sitting 'neath an old shade tree
 Cadd9                                                         D
As he wound it for the hundredth time and spoke these words to me


        Cadd9         G
He said time waits on no one
       Cadd9         G
Like a train it just rolls on
          Em
It's more precious than gold
     C
With hands you can't hold
             G         Em         C
You think it won't run out but it will
      Cadd9     Em        C    D          G
And boy, only a woman can make time stand still


G    Cadd9    Em    C    D    G


G
Well I remember plain as day
                                    Cadd9
The Good Lord callin' pop away, and how I cried
     G
Well it seemed like slow motion then

I can't believe how long it's been
   Cadd9                      ***
Oh he was right, time does fly
  Em            C                G
Today I'm gonna tell that boy of mine
     Em               C               D
Pass daddy's words of wisdom down the line


That time waits on no one
Like a train it just rolls on
It's more precious than gold
With hands you can't hold
You thin it won't run out but it will
And only a woman can make time stand still


G      Em
And he said only a woman can make time stand still

G      Cadd9   
I found it in an old cigar box
A timeless treasure my daddy forgot he put there..
