CHUCK BERRY lyrics - Darlin'

CHUCK BERRY
"Darlin'"

Darlin' your father's growing older, each year
Strands of gray are showing bolder, come here
And lay your head upon my shoulder, my dear
The time is passing fast away

There has been many sundown that I've seen, come by
Since you were just sweet sixteen, and I
I have played these same songs of yesterday, oh my
How the time has passed away

Yes, there's been fame and there's been fortune
But there's been heartache combined
Hear me now as I cry, oh, loving fans of mine
The good times come but do not stay, you'll find
Time will take them fast away

Darlin', hear these words and true are they, my dear
Life can pass so fast away
