Let Time Go Lightly  Harry Chapin

[G]I let time go [Gmaj7]lightly when I'm [C]here with you
[Am]I let time go [D]lightly when the [C]day is t[G]hrough     [C]
[G]I keep a watch[Gmaj7] on time when I've got [C]work to do
[Am]I let time go [D]lightly with y[C]ou [G]
[G]Mornin[C]g,[G] a time for [C]breaking ground and [G]sowing seed  [C]  [G]
And yet we give up our [C]sunshine [D]so we can [C]buy what we [G]need
And [C]that leaves the [G]evenin[C]g [G]to share a [C]fire with a [G]friend or two  [C]  [G]
[G]to lose sight of the [C]hours; [D]to go [C]lightly with [G]you

Old friends, they mean much more to me than a new friend
'cause they can see where you are and they know where you've been
Music has been my closest friend, my fiercest foe
'cause it can take you so high; yes, it can take you so low

[C]When I was a [G]child my [D]mother [G]would [A]help me along
[A]She'd rock me to sleep and [C]sing me a song
[C]So I learned to l[G]ove the [D]music of [G]all the [A]tunes in my head
[A]The changing of chords, [C]the rhythm of time

Yes [C]I let time go [D]lightly with [C]you
and a [Am]fire and a f[D/F#]riend or [G]two
With [Am]you and a [C]fire and a [D/F#]friend or [G]two
[C]A friend or two, and [G]you
