A Long Time Ago  Jim Croce


[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] [in[C]tro[D]; a[D]cou[G6]stic[G6] gui[G6]tar] [G6]
[C] [in[C]tro[D]; w[D]hol[G6]e ba[G6]nd] [G6]    [G6]

You crossed my mi[C]nd again to[C]day,[D] I was o[D]ut to get the [G6]mail  [G6]    [G6]    [G6]
And I wondered if y[C]ou think of [C]me  [D] when you're [D]riding the [G6]rails[G6]    [G6]    [G6]
And I wondered if you[C] cared at [C]all,[D] some[D]times I don't [G6]know [G6]    [G6]    [G6]
And I was hoping you coul[C]d write to [C]me, [D] from a [D]long time a[G6]go   [G6]    [G6]    [G6]
I had that dream[C] again last [C]night,[D] we were [D]back in Chicag[G6]o   [G6]    [G6]    [G6]
We were riding 'round and[C] talking 'b[C]out[D] things you [D]said I oughta [G6]know[G6]    [G6]    [G6]
And you told me how our[C] life would [C]be,[D] and I'm [D]learning that it's[G6] so [G6]    [G6]    [G6]
And I was hoping you could[C] call me [C]up  [D] at a l[D]ong time a[G6]go   [G6]   [-]  [G6/F#]
[Em]  And I [Em]think about that[D] summer n[D]ight when you [C]said you'd [C]always[G] care[G]  [-]  [G/F#]
[Em]  And I [Em]think about this[D] lonely l[D]ife when your [C]words turn [C]cold in the [D]air
  And now the [D]winter's almost[G6] here[G6]    [G6]    [G6]
[C] [gu[C]ita[D]r s[D]olo[G6]]   [G6]    [G6]    [G6]
[C] [gu[C]ita[D]r s[D]olo[G6]]   [G6]    [G6]    [G6]
And you know that I would[C] write a [C]book,[D] but the [D]story's seldom[G6] told[G6]    [G6]    [G6]
Of a fool who'd go and[C] walk the [C]bridge[D] back to a [D]long time ag[G6]o   [G6]    [G6]    [G6]
So here I'm stuck in[C] Santa Fe[C] in a [D]trailer by the [D]road [G6]    [G6]    [G6]    [G6]
With only dreams of[C] yesterd[C]ay  [D] and a l[D]ong time a[G6]go  [G6]    [G6]    [G6]
                   C         C   D [bold]
I have only dreams of yesterday and a long time ago
G C D G.
