It's Time To Pay The Fiddler
Cal Smith

A
Well It's time to pay the fiddler, 
                                       D
and it's sad to know we danced it all away.
         E
But the warm nights disappearing leaving nothing, 
                            A
But the cold hard light of day.

And it's time to start erasing all the rainbows 
                           D
we've been chasing in our mind.
          E
We know there's no way of making other 
                            A
ties on us unraveled and unwind.

(Chorus)
A
Yes it's time to pay the fiddler 
                                            D
and today's the day the first installments due.
             E
But for the rest of all my days, 
                                          A 
I wonder why the maker mismatched me and you.

But there's so much to consider, 

like may wife and little children,
                                        D
Who need and want my love just like you do.
          E
Now it's time to pay the fiddler, 

but before we pay the fiddler,
                                             A
Let's ask him to please play one last final tune.

A
Well it's time to pay the fiddler, 
                                        D
there's naked sorry dripping from your eyes.
       E
Unrestrained and unashamed we loved each other, 
                         A
now we got the leave it lie.

But I can feel my hands a trembling, 
                                       D
as I search to find the handle on the door.
    E
So let's let the fiddler pull his magic bow 
                                    A
across our heart strings just once more.

(Repeat Chorus)
