Five More Minutes
Eight years old, a couple cane poles
Sittin' down by the creek
Lines in the water, watching those bobbers
Seeing that red sun sink
Mama's on the porch yelling, "Supper's hot
Y'all come and get it"
We yelled, "Five more minutes!"

At sixteen it was twelve-o-three
Standin' at her front door
Katie's dad said midnight
But we needed just a little more
Yellow light flippin' on and off
Interruptin' that goodnight kissing
We wanted five more minutes

Time rolls by, the clock don't stop
I wish I had a few more drops
Of the good stuff, the good times
Oh, but they just keep on flyin'
Right on by like it ain't nothin'
Wish I had me a pause button
Moments like those; Lord knows I'd hit it
Give myself five more minutes

At eighteen, turned my helmet in
And walked to the fifty yard line
Just the coach and me after we
Lost State ten to nine
And I cried, "Man, next time to get in here
I'll have to buy a ticket
Can't you give me five more minutes?"

Time rolls by the clock don't stop
I wish I had a few more drops
Of the good stuff, the good times
Oh but they just keep on flyin'
Right on by like it ain't nothin'
Wish I had me a pause button
Moments like those; Lord knows I'd hit it
And give myself five more minutes

At eighty-six, my grandpa said,
"There's angels in the room
All the family gathered 'round
Knew the time was coming soon
With so much left to say I prayed
"Lord, I ain't finished
Just give us five more minutes"

Time rolls by the clock don't stop
I wish I had a few more drops
Of the good stuff, the good times
Oh but they just keep on flyin'
Right on by like it ain't nothin'
I wish I had me a pause button
Moments like those; Lord knows I'd hit it

Yeah, sometimes this ol' life will leave you wishin'
That you had five more minutes
Oh, five more minutes
