Joe Hinton sang this song written by country and western star Willie Nelson recorded previously by Johnny Tillotson. The version of this we remember was recorded by Joe Tex – fabulous.

Song Lyrics – Funny How Time Slips Away

My, it’s been a long, long time

How’m I doin’?

Well, I guess I’m doin’ fine

It’s been so long now

An’ it seems like it was only yesterday

Ain’t it funny how time slips away?

How’s your new love?

Gee, I hope he’s doin’ fine

I heard ya told him

That you’d love till the end of time

Well, that’s the same thing that you told me

Seems like just the other day

Gee, ain’t it funny how time just slips away?

I gotta go now

Guess I’ll see you ’round

I don’t know when, though

I never know when I’ll be back in town

Now remember whatcha told me

That “in time you’re gonna pay”

And it’s surprisin’ how time slips away


Written by C/W Star Willie Nelson recorded previously by Johnny Tillotson. I always thought this was recorded by Joe Tex – maybe he did a cover or did he just sound similar?
