Ricky Skaggs - Walls Of Time Lyrics

The wind is blowing cross the mountains
And out on the valley way below.
It sweeps the grave of my darling
When I die that's where I want to go.

Lord, send the angels for my darling
And take her to that home on high
I'll wait my time out here on earth love
And come to you when I die.

I hear a voice out in the darkness
It moans and whispers through the pines
I know it's my sweetheart a calling
I hear her through the walls of time.

Lord, send the angels for my darling
And take her to that home on high
I'll wait my time out here on earth love
And come to you when I die.

Our names are carved upon a tombstone
I promised you before you died
Our love will bloom forever darling
When we rest side by side.

Lord, send the angels for my darling
And take her to that home on high
I'll wait my time out here on earth love
And come to you when I die...

  3. Teresa Rowe Ritchie Moore

    we have forgotten oh RickyScaggs, one of the best bluegrass singers i ever listen to

    Thomas Foss

    We've seen him before and after his bluegrass awakening------

  4. Kathie Kennedy

    The best in Bluegrass!

    Thanks, man! I’m almost sure he’s the guy. I studied his face for a minute. I’m good at recognizing voices but he’s singing in a lower register on Kentucky Waltz and it’s hard to tell.

    One of the commenters said they’d seen him sing the same song before with Ricky Skaggs and Kentucky Thunder. So it’s pretty much got to be Paul Bryant.

    Nice song too, btw. I didn’t know it. I was thinking it was going to be TN Waltz or Blue Moon of KY right up until he started singing 🤦🏼‍♀️


    Morag MacGregor it’s 100% Paul Brewster, he’s amazing at what he does, and he’s been singing with Ricky for over 20 years now

    Morag MacGregor

    Ricky is in the top 1% of talent in my book. Makes sense that he would hire and stick with top talent. Or marry into their family 🤠

  8. Morag MacGregor

    WHO is singing the high harmony? He could be as good as Ricky. Definitely in his high class.


    Paul Brewster I think

    Morag MacGregor

    Thx, I don’t know him but I’m gonna look for him now.


    Check out this one of him https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7V70jtahBIM singing Kentucky Waltz

    Best version I’ve heard and I’ve pretty much heard them all.

  10. Scott McDonald

    Where is Cody?

    Andy Price

    This was before he came to the band.

    Symphony Farm

    That's not Bryan Sutton though?....is it? @Andy Price

    Andy Price

    @Symphony Farm no its clay hess

    Symphony Farm

    How bout that! So was the order of guitarist in KT Sutton, Hess, Kirby, [email protected] Price

  11. Gee Raffe

    I dare anyone to dis this - it resonates to the core of your soul

  12. Charlotte C

    First introduced to this song by Emmylou Harris. Love this song!

  13. haanashim

    His vocal on this is possibly my favorite.

  14. Jan Songs Productions

    Rob Ickes on Dobro! Only one wearing jeans... ha.


    And it's not a reso either. Wonder what kind of an old beat up guitar that is.

    Jim Masters

    Not a dobro.....

  15. Jeff Trauth

    did you see Mr. Vincent playing rythmn guitar?

  16. Richard Stoker

    Best version and the most melodic, but that's only my opinion.


    I think Emmylou's is better, IMHO. More beat.

    Morag MacGregor

    Thx for the Robert Earl King referral, y’all, great album. Two things I love: in Texas, a little Bob Wills flavor always finds its way into the bluegrass and that’s a very tasty combo. 2. Stone bluegrass bands are too dang obsessed with SPEED. I love the tempo and strong rhythmic feel of Hot Corn Cold Corn.

    I’m a fan of King’s. I still prefer Ricky’s Walls of Time but Keen’s Hot Corn Cold Corn is about as perfect as it gets.


    Nice to hear Air Canada actually brought joy into someone's life! They usually tend to piss off most people, me included. Your luggage must have arrived then too.


    Richard Stoker there’s a version with this band in 2002 music wise it’s far better than this, but the audio is lower than this one sadly

    sc lawman

    I love Ricky's music but for this song I'm partial to Father Bill/Peter Rowan or the Johnson Mountain Boy's version.

    thanks.  been trying to learn this.
