   SHE DIDN'T HAVE TIME    Terri Clark

          D
He said goodbye from the edge of the porch
      A 
Like she'd been some casual friend
                  G 
He said "You're better off without me, I'm not what you need"
          A 
Like her mama had said about him
      D 
He started the car, pulled outta the drive
         A 
Didn't waste any time looking back
      G 
She watched him go, thinking even a stranger
       Bm                        A
Would show more compassion than that
               D                            A   
She could have cried   But she didn't have time
                  G            
She had a baby to feed  A pink blanket to find
                              D
To rock their little one to sleep
                               A                G
She could have laid in bed for hours   Givin' misery the power
        A             G   A G A
But she didn't have time
     D                                    A 
She got a sitter and she got a job Cause she had a promise to keep
    G 
Her day was a factory and evening survival  
      A
And night was exhaustion and sleep
       D 
Some-times she felt life was passing her by
      A 
And watching was all she could do
        G 
Her friends said "you gotta get out of the house,
    Bm                         A
And maybe you'll meet someone new"
               D                            A
She could have tried   But she didn't have time
                            G 
She had a five year old to feed
         G               
She had ballet class, piano lessons  And t-ball little league
                                A                              G
She could have laid awake for hours  Givin' lonely nights the power
        A            Bm       
But she didn't have time
                            G                             Bm
Not time, where would she find the time to trust a man a-gain
                         G                                D
Not time, for that flat tire, a crowded parking lot and then
                         A                                    G
Not time, but yes have coffee with the man that got her tire fixed
                   G                                   A n.c.	                  
She was thinkin' "gosh he's handsome"  When he asked, "do you have kids?"
                D                         A  
She could have lied  But she didn't have time
                          G
All she said was, "she's five"
                     A            G               D
He said, "I saw the car seat, I love kids,  Does she have your eyes?"
                              A                        G
And they sat and talked for hours  Giving destiny its power
                 G 
She coulda been afraid to fall in love that night
         A           D     A   G
But she didn't have time
                      G                          A
She could have been afraid to fall in love that night
n.c.	                     G A G A D
But she didn't have time-ime
