"Time Changes Everything" is a Western swing standard with words and music written by Tommy Duncan, the long-time vocalist with Bob Wills and the Texas Playboys. Written as a ballad, the lyrics tell of a failed romance and of the hurt that has healed.
The Texas Playboys recorded "Time Changes Everything" during an April 16, 1940, recording session in Saginaw, Texas. It was first released on the OKeh label, and has been reissued many times. It became one of the top singles that year.
Bob Wills Time Changes Everything Lyrics
There was a time when I thought of no other and we sang our own love's refrain
Our hearts beat as one and we had our fun but time changes everything
When you left me my poor heart was broken our romance it seemed all in vain
The dark coulds're gone and there's blue skies again
'Cause time changes everything
Time has passed I've forgot you mother nature does wonderful things
I guess that it's true for me and for you 'cause time changes everything
You change the name of an old song rearrange it and make it a swing
I thought nothing could stop me from loving you but time changes everything
Good luck to you may God bless you I can't say I won't love again
But you go your way and now I'll go mine cause time changes everything
