Ain't Wastin' Time No More

Ain't Wastin' Time No More
by Gregg Allman
(c) 1972 & 1974 by No Exit Music Co.

Transcribed by Joshua Zemel

Last Sunday morning, the sunshine felt like rain.
Week before, they all seemed the same.
With the help of God and true friends, I come to realize
I still had two strong legs, and even wings to fly.

And oh I, ain't wastin time no more
'Cause time goes by like hurricanes, and faster things.

Lord, lord Miss Sally, why all your cryin'?
Been around here three long days, you're lookin' like you're dyin'.
Just step yourself outside, and look up at the stars above
Go on downtown baby, find somebody to love.

Meanwhile I ain't wastin' time no more
'Cause time goes by like pouring rain, and much faster things.

You don't need no gypsy to tell you why
You can't let one precious day slip by.
Look inside yourself, and if you don't see what you want,
Maybe sometimes then you don't,
But leave your mind alone and just get high.

Well by and by, way after many years have gone,
And all the war freaks die off, leavin' us alone.
We'll raise our children in the peaceful way we can,
It's up to you and me brother
To try and try again.

Well, hear us now, we ain't wastin' time no more
'Cause time goes by like hurricanes
Runnin' after subway trains
Don't forget the pouring rain.

They say that beauty fades away, but that's not the case with "Ain't Wastin' Time No More." The beauty of this song is it's sheer magnificence. I don't think that Gregg Allman has ever received his proper due as a truly great song writer. This song is about loss and yet, he is giving us a foundation for going on. Thanks to all of the Brother's, past and present, who have played this gem for us! -rcaro

My friend has passed but I have this song to hold onto . Whenever I hear it a smile appears on my lips . I am instantly transported back to a place in time at The Beacon where all is well & I can overcome sadness . Allmans , Thanks for the Memories . Marianne

Tried to make it to Beacon,March 19 ,but my friend got real sick on the way there!We decided to give the tix away ,while there a friend talked security into letting her in to buy a t-Shirt.Security was great & let her in. This past week my friend celebrated her 50 TH birthday & is cancer free,Yahoo!For her birthday I took the Tee & sewed it to the back of a jacket ,she will wear it to the 2005 concert. Thanks for your good thoughts!

No matter how bad it has been in the past, see through the pain as long as the other one is trying best they can, their hardest ,to waist time no more.

I remeber being 10 years old when I first heard this song and it still brings smiles to my face after hearing it so many times I never get tired of hearing it. The old songs are the best.
