Five More Minutes

VERSE
Eight years old, a couple cane poles, sitting down by the creek.    [A]
Our lines in the water, watching those bobbers, seeing that red sun sink.    [A]
Mama’s on the porch yelling “supper’s hot, y’all come and get it.”    [B]
We yelled, “five more minutes.”    [B]

VERSE
At sixteen it was twelve-o-three, standing at her front door.    [C]
Katie’s dad said midnight, but we needed just a little more.    [C]
Yellow light flipping on and off, interrupting that goodnight kissing.    [B]
We wanted five more minutes.    [B]

CHORUS
Time rolls by, the clock don’t stop.    [D]
I wish I had a few more drops    [D]
Of the good stuff, the good times.    [E]
Oh, but they just keep on flying.    [E]
Right on by, like it ain’t nothing.    [F]
Wish I had me a pause button.    [F]
Moments like those, Lord knows I’d hit it.    [B]
And give myself five more minutes.    [B]

VERSE
At eighteen, turned my helmet in and walked to the fifty yard line.    [G]
Just the coach and me after we lost eighteen to nine.    [G]
And I cried, “Man, next time to get in here I’ll have to buy a ticket.”    [B]
Can’t you give me five more minutes?    [B]

CHORUS
Time rolls by, the clock don’t stop.    [D]
I wish I had a few more drops    [D]
Of the good stuff, the good times.    [E]
Oh, but they just keep on flying.    [E]
Right on by, like it ain’t nothing.    [F]
Wish I had me a pause button.    [F]
Moments like those, Lord knows I’d hit it.    [B]
And give myself five more minutes.    [B]

VERSE
At eighty-six my grandpa said, “there’s angels in the room.”    [G]
All the family gathered ’round knew the time was coming soon.    [G]
With so much left to say, I prayed Lord I ain’t finished,    [B]
Just give us five more minutes.    [B]

CHORUS
Time rolls by, the clock don’t stop.    [D]
I wish I had a few more drops    [D]
Of the good stuff, the good times.    [E]
Oh, but they just keep on flying.    [E]
Right on by, like it ain’t nothing.    [F]
Wish I had me a pause button.    [F]
Moments like those, Lord knows I’d hit it.    [B]
Yeah sometimes this old life will leave you wishing    [B]
That you had five more minutes.    [B]
Five more minutes.    [B]
