Time in a Bottle

Jim Croce

I am a real Jim Croce fan.  I have often wished that I had taken the opportunity to see him in Amsterdam, in 1973 when I was there, and he was touring Europe at the time, as he died shortly thereafter.

When ever I hear Time in a Bottle, I in my mind change the first two lines of the lyric to be: "If I could put time in a bottle, I'd have me a bottle of time."  I know it's dumb, but then consider the source.

Here is a not great quality rendition of this Timeless classic of his.  Sorry for that, but it's the best I could find.  I'll make it up with other Croce classics later.
