Johnny Cash - The Twentieth Century Is Almost Over lyrics

Back in 1899, when everyone was singing "auld lang syne" A century took a long, long time for every boy and girl. Now there's only one thing that I'd like to know Where did the 20th century go? I'd swear it was here just a minute ago All over this world. [Chorus:] And now the 20th century is almost over, Almost over, almost over The 20th century is almost over All over this world. All over this world, all over this world The 20th century is almost over, all over this world. Does anyone remember the great depression? I read all about it in true confession I'm sorry I was late for the recording session But somebody put me on hold. Has anybody seen my linoleum floors Petroleum jelly, and two world wars? They got stuck in the revolving doors All over this world. And now... The winter's getting colder, summer's getting hotter Wishin' well's wishin' for another drop of water. And mother earth's blushin 'cause somebody caught her Makin' love to the man in the moon. Tell me how you gonna keep 'em down on the farm Now that outer space has lost it's charm? Somebody set off a burglar alarm And not a moment too soon. Because... Old father time has got his toes a tappin' Standing in the window, grumblin' and a rappin' Everybody's waiting for something to happen. Tell me if it happens to you! The judgment day is getting nearer There it is in the rear view mirror. If you duck down I could see a little clearer All over this world! And now...
