Guitar Tabs, Chords and Lyrics

a long time ago   Mary Karlzen

A LONG TIME AGO (Mary Karlzen & Mark Scandariato)
[The G6 is probably played as plain G a lot of the time, but in the
 intro, it's clearly G6 (320030), so I'll assume that Mary plays it
 that way through the whole song.]
C  C  D  D  G6  G6  G6  G6
[intro; acoustic guitar]
C  C  D  D  G6  G6  G6  G6
[intro; whole band]
                 C          C   D       D             G6    G6  G6  G6    
You crossed my mind again today, I was out to get the mail
                   C           C   D            D          G6   G6  G6  G6
And I wondered if you think of me   when you're riding the rails
                     C         C   D    D             G6   G6  G6  G6
And I wondered if you cared at all, sometimes I don't know
                         C          C   D       D          G6   G6  G6  G6
And I was hoping you could write to me,  from a long time ago
                C           C     D        D             G6  G6  G6  G6    
I had that dream again last night, we were back in Chicago
                         C          C  D           D             G6  G6  G6  G6
We were riding 'round and talking 'bout things you said I oughta know
                       C           C  D        D                 G6  G6  G6  G6
And you told me how our life would be, and I'm learning that it's so
                          C        C   D      D         G6   G6 - G6/F#
And I was hoping you could call me up   at a long time ago
Em      Em              D        D             C          C     G    G - G/F#
  And I think about that summer night when you said you'd always care
Em      Em              D        D             C          C           D
  And I think about this lonely life when your words turn cold in the air
              D              G6   G6  G6  G6
  And now the winter's almost here
C  C  D  D  G6  G6  G6  G6
[guitar solo]
C  C  D  D  G6  G6  G6  G6
[guitar solo]
                         C        C    D        D             G6   G6  G6  G6
And you know that I would write a book, but the story's seldom told
                      C         C     D          D           G6  G6  G6  G6
Of a fool who'd go and walk the bridge back to a long time ago
                    C        C     D              D    G6  G6  G6  G6    
So here I'm stuck in Santa Fe in a trailer by the road
                   C       C   D       D         G6  G6  G6  G6    
With only dreams of yesterday   and a long time ago
                   C         C   D [hold]
I have only dreams of yesterday   and a long time ago
G  C  D  G.
