STALLING FOR TIME

By John D. Loudermilk
1966 & 1967 Acuff-Rose Publ. Inc.

You stretch one cigarette from one to the other
And you go from politics to baby brother
Ah, you're just stalling for time
Stalling for time, till the sun shines

You make small talk and lead me on and on
And then draw back just at the crack of dawn
'Cause you're just stalling for time
Stalling for time, till the sun shines

You run in tears from my embrace
And hope the morning sun will hide your blushing face
While you fight a battle you know I'm gonna win
But you don't give up till the sun comes up again
You're just stalling for time
Stalling for time, till the sun shines
Till the sun shines, till the sun shines
And burns all my chances away
