I've Lived a Lot in my Time
Written by Jim Reeves



Chords


Song

1.

I once had a mansion and lived in my glory,
But now I'm down to my last dime,
I once had a sweetheart but I was unfaithful,
Yes I've lived a lot in my time.

chorus:

I fought the grim reaper down in the dark valley,
I've prayed when the sun wouldn't shine,
I've looked through the bars of that cold lonely prison,
Yes I've lived a lot in my time.

2.

I once was a soldier and I was a rounder,
And I thought that everything was fine,
I fought in the cornfields, I've picked in the cotton.
Yes I've lived a lot in my time.

3.

I've walked with my maker down in the dark valley,
A wonderful peace did I find,
Someday I will journey to Eden's green pastures,
Yes I've lived a lot in my time.

coda:

Yes I've lived a lot in my time.
