Skaggs, Ricky - 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...

Skaggs, Ricky Walls Of Time Comments
  1. arthur ogle

    The blind banjer picker I've performed with 43 years really shuns this tune. Don't know why!
    Pete Rown and Big Mon wrote a great tune IMO. Hannah. I've loved Bg since I was 12. Got my
    1st standup bass when I was 15. Played in 3 different bands.

  2. tom parker

    It's cut off a bit at the end.

  10. madchad77

    All the thumbs down must be Puke Bryan fans

  11. Angel Vanover

    Love this song.

  12. Mike Schmidt

    I've had that mandolin intro stuck in my head for weeks. It will NOT go away.

    At least it's because I like it. Usually it's the ones I don't like that get stuck in my head.

    I don't usually use the word "powerful" seriously, but this version of this tune is just that!

  13. Larry Proctor

    Kentucky born, Kentucky proud :)

  14. chobeeboy44

    I'm pining to see them hills of East Tennessee!


    Gotta love it!

  16. G.P.Braaten

    Today, I have experienced Ricky Skaggs for the first time.  WOW.

  17. madmardigan021

    Best remake of all time!

  18. Hannah Northedge

    I love bluegrass so much. It touches my soul like no other style of music.

    Dave Taylor

    blue grass is amazing makes u wanna tap ur feet to the beat

    Datta Groover

    Only if it's good. This is great!

    Jeremy Black

    ....ain't it great.

    Thomas Foss

    Hannah--Wanna sing/play in our band??

    james clark

    You should play it! Bluegrass is way better for the player than the listener :)
    Tons of fun. Bass is very easy, so you can get started right away!

  19. Soko delic

    I know right...

  20. Soko delic

    Doubt all you want. In my experience doubt leads to true knowledge. Question, grow Caterpillar!

  21. Sarumon the White

    A religious bluegrass song? Unheard of.....

  22. Soko delic

    "Lord" and "Angels" are religious terms, as they are form in "religious" text, like the bible and the quran (Allah is just another name for Lord). Doubt if you so wish, I don't pretend to know everything. And my exact words were that "some people may call me a "hippie"...I am not "self-proclaimed"...ugh...too many quotations, haha. I don't wish to argue...just to defend my statement.

    Eli Covington

    chill out man. good song.

    Israel Longoria

    Let the man speak his mind. No need to preach to him “to chill.”

  23. HeavyMetalBluegrass

    I first heard a guitar player at our jam do this song. I then heard the Peter Rowan version which I really liked. This is a good rendition also.

  24. delano62

    Best version ever!

  25. toterola451

    @gamlastanarn, bite your tongue! But I agree with you! ;)

  26. Taylor Johnson

    every so often someone uncovers potential in a song that we didn't know was there I think while many may have enjoyed the original it is hard to deny that this version is nearly perfect

  27. Oskar Kollen

    @TheSokodelic The lyrics aren't at all that religious. More hippy, spiritual than religious. Come on now self proclaimed hippy. Great lyrics. Up there with Robert Hunter. I hope you know who that is, but then again, I have my doubts in you.

  28. Bean klicker

    why does this video have no views. its GREAT tune!

  29. michael ware

    hippies are dead, theres no more true hippies

    Israel Longoria

    Not good

  30. Soko delic

    I am what some people may call a "hippie" but you know what I do appreciate music like this, so call me a Don't care much about the words though, aint religious

  31. sofia reme

    nice song!!!...good job my girl...haha...
