Scotty Emerick — The Watch lyrics

I found it in an old cigar box
A timeless treasure my daddy forgot he put there
A gold faced elegant pocket watch
He carried in his overall for all those years
And I wound it up and I held up to my ear
And I listened as it ticked away the years
And it took me back there in his lap underneath an old shade tree
As he wound it for the hundreth time and spoke these words to me

He said 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 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 called pop away and how I cried
Well it seemed like slow motion then
Now 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 think it won't run out but it will
Only a woman can make time stand still

Yeah 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.
