  • There's still a long way to go
    And the nights are closing in
    But if I'd travelled any faster babe
    Lord knows where I might have been

    Right from those early days
    I put my faith in the axle not the wheels
    Like old Zeno's toytus
    with Achilles snapping at my heels

    Don't worry
    There's no hurry
    Here we are
    With all the time in the world

    I could have been a high-flying dealer
    But I have no desire for speed
    I could have been a wild receiver
    But I've got everything I need

    And so I watch the world
    Go racing by tearing up the street
    I lay back in the long grass
    Take it easy and rest my feet

    Don't worry
    You know, there's no hurry
    Here we are
    With all the time in the world

    No-one ever held me back
    You know that no-one ever put me in chains
    No-one ever saw me racing ahead
    No-one had to tug on my reins

    As everybody knows
    I may be slow but I never quit
    Sometimes on a good day I sit and think
    Sometimes I just sit

    Don't worry
    Relax, there's no hurry
    Here we are
    With all the time in the world

  • Uli Rohde from Heidelberg, GermanyI once had to play pedalsteel guitar for this song with a great local Deep Purple coverband. Because on the orig. recording you can hear it clearly, and the steel player is named. Now the steel is gone on the version you can find on youtube.
