(Don Wayne - Walter Haynes)

Well, it's time to pay the fiddler
And it's sad to know we've danced it all away
But the one night's disappearing leaving nothin'
But the cold hard light of day.

And it's time to start erasin' all the rainbows
We've been chasing in our minds
We know there's no way of making other ties
On us unravel and unwind.

Yes, it's time to pay the fiddler
And today's the day the thirsty someones do
For the rest of all my days I wonder why
The maker mismatched me and you.

But there's so much to consider
Like my man and little baby
Will need and want my love just like you do
Now it's time to pay the fiddler
But before we pay the fiddler
Let's say to him please play one last final tune.

--- Instrumental ---

Well, it's time to pay the fiddler now
There's naked sorrow drippin' from my eyes
On'ry, stranded and unshamed we've loved each other
Now we've got to leave it lie.

But I can feel my hands a trembling
And I search to find a handle on the door
So let's let the fiddler pull his magic bow
Across our heart strings just once more.

Yes, it's time to pay the fiddler
And today's the day the thirsty someones do
For the rest of all my days I wonder why
The maker mismatched me and you.

But there's so much to consider
Like my man and little baby
Will need and want my love just like you do
Now it's time to pay the fiddler
But before we pay the fiddler
Let's say to him please play one last final tune...
This song is from the album "Back to the Country".
