  • Maybe it's time to let the old ways die
    Maybe it's time to let the old ways die
    It takes a lot to change a man
    Hell, it takes a lot to try
    Maybe it's time to let the old ways die

    Nobody knows what awaits for the dead
    Nobody knows what awaits for the dead
    Some folks just believe in the things they've heard
    And the things they read
    Nobody knows what awaits for the dead

    I'm glad I can't go back to where I came from
    I'm glad those days are gone, gone for good
    But if I could take spirits from my past and bring' 'em here
    You know I would, you know I would

    Nobody speaks to God these days
    Nobody speaks to God these days
    I'd like to think he's looking down and laughing at our ways
    Nobody speaks to God these days

    When I was a child they tried to fool me
    Said the worldly man was lost and that the hell was real
    Well, I've seen hell in Reno
    And this world's one big ol' Catherine wheel
    Spinnin' still

    Maybe it's time to let the old ways die
    Maybe it's time to let the old ways die
    It takes a lot to change your plans
    Hella drain to change your mind
    Maybe it's time to let the old ways die
    Oh, maybe it's time to let the old ways die Writer/s: Michael Jason Isbell
