Lyrics
There’s an old black tire tied to a rope

Hangin’ from a limb of the maple tree

In my backyard

And when the moon shines through the deep green leaves

I take a swing and let the motion gently

Move the stars

And all the things I think about

Float right up through the clouds

When I throw my head back, stretch my legs

And let the breeze push me around

 Chorus

I’m takin’ my time for my heart’s sake

Fillin’ myself with peace and quiet and a little space

I’m takin’ my time ‘cause it’s mine to take

Clearin’ my mind so I can make it through another day

I ain’t gonna rush one single minute

So call me selfish, I’ll admit it

I’ll stay out here ‘til me and this rope can unwind

I’m grabbin’ hold and takin’ my own sweet time

 

There’s a hundred things I need to do

I should wash some clothes, write some bills

And straighten up my house

But I know those things will wait for me

Like a patient thief they hang around

Just to wipe me out

So I’ll let it sit and stew awhile

When I need to watch the sky

And let this tire sway my thoughts

And rock me ‘til I’m thinkin’ right

 Chorus

I’m takin’ my time for my heart’s sake

Fillin’ myself with peace and quiet and a little space

I’m takin’ my time ‘cause it’s mine to take

Clearin’ my mind so I can make it through another day

I ain’t gonna rush one single minute

So call me selfish, I’ll admit it

I’ll stay out here ‘til me and this rope can unwind

I’m grabbin’ hold and takin’ my own sweet time
