Scotty Emerick lyrics : "The Watch"

I found it in an old cigar box
A timeless treasure my daddy forgot he put there
A gold faced Elgin pocketwatch


He carried in his overalls all those years
And I wound it up and I held it up to my ear


And I listened as it ticked away the years
And it took me back there in his lap sitting 'neath an old shade tree

As he wound it for the hundredth time and spoke these words to me




He said time waits on no one
It's more precious than gold

With hands you can't hold
You think it won't run out but it will
And boy, only a woman can make time stand still





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


I can't believe how long it's been


Oh he was right, time does fly
Today I'm gonna tell that boy of mine
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



And he said only a woman can make time stand still

I found it in an old cigar box

A timeless treasure my daddy forgot he put there..
