Story

I felt I could improve my folk song "All in Good Time" by making it more bluesy. (The folk version appears on my first CD: Nothing Seems Like What It Seems.) The blues rearrangement required substantially altering the melody (which includes a key shift). The lyrics were altered also, but just a bit.

Lyrics

ALL-IN-GOOD-TIME BLUES Michael Dyer © 2009 (Derived from Dyer's song "All In Good Time" © 2006) All in good time, our toys must unwind, Leavin’ behind, all we defined, As wealth, Along with our health. We’ve heaped up a bundle, but it’s all, All gonna crumble. All in good time, our ploys must unwind, Leavin’ behind, all we defined, As truth, The end of our youth. Memories have fled, left little, Little instead. All in good time, our joys must unwind, Leavin’ behind, all we defined, As love, The ones we think of. We’re tryin’ to buy, a smile, A smile and a sigh. A smile and a sigh. A smile and a sigh. All in good time, our dreams must unwind, Leavin’ behind, all we defined, As hope, We've had enough rope, To hang ourselves high. Now we’re left, High and dry. Left high, high and dry. Left high, high and dry. All in good time, our clocks must unwind, Leavin’ behind, all we defined, As life, The end of our strife. Been grubbin' ahead, instead, Of flyin’. Instead of flyin'. Oh, oh. Instead of flyin'. Oh, oh.
