I AIN'T GONNA WASTE MY TIME
(J.D. Miller)
WILEY BARKDULL (HICKORY 45-1074, 1958)

Now, listen to me baby let me set you straight
I want your love, but I ain't gonna wait
I ain't gonna waste my time
I ain't gonna waste my time
I ain't gonna let you treat me like a worn out dime

I want your lovin', that I can't deny
But I'm gonna live till the day I die
I'm spinnin' my wheel no matter what you do
For I can find another like I found you

You can't sell your boat when the pond is dry
You can't sugar me with your worn out lies
I ain't gonna waste my time
I ain't gonna waste my time
I ain't gonna let you treat me like a worn out dime

Now, when I come a callin' and knock on your door
You better hear the first 'cause there won't be no more
I ain't gonna waste my time
I ain't gonna waste my time
I ain't gonna let you treat me like a worn out dime

I want your lovin', that I can't deny
But I'm gonna live till the day I die
I'm spinnin' my wheel no matter what you do
For I can find another like I found you

Ain't no use for fishin' when the fish won't bite
Right from the start I wanna hold her tight
I ain't gonna waste my time
I ain't gonna waste my time
I ain't gonna let you treat me like a worn out dime
I ain't gonna let you treat me like a worn out dime
