(Nelson)

Informação:
Willie Nelson compôs Funny How Time Slips Away em 10 minutos a caminho do trabalho em 1961. Foi gravada nesse ano por Billy Walker (Columbia 42050) e Jimmy Elledge (RCA 47-7946). A versão de Walker alcançou a 23ª posição na tabela country e a de Elledge chegou ao 22º lugar na tabela Hot 100. Diz-se que a versão de Elledge vendeu mais de um milhão de exemplares, bem como para a versão de Joe Hinton (Back Beat 541) em 1964, que se intitulava Funny. A gravação de Hinton alcançou a 13ª posição na tabela Hot 100. Outras rendições da canção incluem versões de Johnny Tillotson (Cadence 4114) em 1963 e de Dorothy Moore (Malaco 1033) em 1976.

Elvis gravou Funny How Time Slips Away em 7 de junho de 1970 nos estúdios da RCA em Nashville. Uma atuação da canção de 14 de abril de 1972, em Greensboro, na Carolina do Norte, foi incluída no documentário de 1972, Elvis On Tour. Uma mistura alternativa foi utilizada no LP da RCA Record Club, Elvis Memories.

Letra:

Well hello there,
my it's been a long long time
How am I doin',
oh well I guess I’m doin' fine
It's been so long now and it seems that
It was only yesterday
Mmm, ain't it funny how time slips away

How's your new love,
I hope that he's doin' fine
Heard you told him, yes baby
That you'd love him till the end of time
Well you know, that's the same thing
that you told me
Well it seems like just the other day
Mmm, ain't it funny how time slips away

Gotta go now,
Guess I’ll see you hanging round
Don't know when though, oh
Never know when I’ll be back in town
But I remember what I told you
That in time you gonna pay

Well ain't it surprisin' how time slips away
Yeah, ain't it surprisin' how time slips away
