FLYIN' BLIND (Robert J. Purvis & William Elliott)


If I put all my memories together

It would take me the rest of my life

To recall and reflect on the best years

'Cause they're all so far back in my mind


I remember the music and dancing

And the lips of the ladies I've dined

But that old Father Time is trying to catch me

So I guess that I'm just flying blind


CHORUS:

Flyin' blind

Flyin' blind

Flyin' blind

Flyin' blind


Spent my life trying to make me a fortune

Spent my fortune on making my life

All the wealth that I've gathered around me

Doesn't matter to more than a dime


If they gave me my life to live over

I'd try to do everything right

But that old Father Time's trying to catch me

So I guess that I'm just flying blind


REPEAT CHORUS


Like a river, I roll on forever

And I talk about this life of mine

But that old Father Time's trying to catch me

So I guess that I'm just flying blind


REPEAT CHORUS 3 times
