Friday afternoon country music lyrics – Today My World Slipped Away by Vern Gosdin

I have this regular Friday feature on my blog – country music lyrics. For an explanation of why I do this, you can check out this post. A few weeks ago, I featured a song Chiseled in Stone by Vern Gosdin. At the time, I didn’t know I’d be featuring another song so quickly by Vern Gosdin.

But, sadly, Vern Gosdin “The Voice” died this week. I interviewed Gosdin in 1989 or 1990 for my country music show, Dirt Roads & Honky Tonks, for WUOG, the University of Georgia college radio station. I don’t have any tapes of that interview, but he was a great interview, and a great country music singer.

Well, it’s Friday afternoon, it’s five o’clock somewhere, and here are the lyrics to Vern Gosdin’s Today My World Slipped Away.

We made it final today
I gave you all I had, you made your get away
All the love we once made
Turned to memories today.

I left the courtroom and went straight to the church
I hit my knees and told God how much I hurt
There’s nothing left of my heart
It’s going to be so hard to make a new start.

Chorus:
‘Cause today my world slipped away
We buried the plans that we made
And tonight I’m alone and afraid
Cause today my world slipped away.

All my friends say I’ll make it alright
I’ll recover and start a new life
But that’ll be so hard to do
‘Cause livin’ ain’t worth livin’ without you.

Chorus:
‘Cause today my world slipped away
We buried the plans that we made
And tonight I’m alone and afraid
Cause today my world slipped away.

‘Cause today my world slipped away…

And, finally, here’s a video of another Vern Gosdin song – That Just About Does It.
