    Lyrics

    (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...
