Thought You Had More Time Than You Do

This song is by Big Head Todd and the Monsters and appears on the album Black Beehive (2014).

Thought you had more time than you do
Thought you had more time than you do
You'd do well to savor everything
Thought you had more time than you do

Just last week the risin' waters
Forced me to leave my family home
Here for my children I worked a lifetime
Now the river streams past my second floor

Stop your crying, get to packing
All your life is washed away
Now you're homeless, shiny shackin' (?)
No place to go, no place to stay

My humble home in South Dakota
Whoa, my life's sweet memories
Now I must decide in fifteen minutes
What to take and what to leave

Smoke from my cigarettes mixes with my tears
Deeper sorrow I have never known
Lost my loved one to cancer last year
Thought you had more time than you do
