Time In A Bottle

Jim Croce

 DmDm(maj7Dm7Dm6
                If I could save time in a bottle 
 Gm6A7
                The first thing that I'd like to do
 DmDm7B-Gm7Dm
                Is to save every day till eternity passes away
 GmA7
                Just to spend them with you.
 DmDm(maj7Dm7Dm6
                If I could make days last forever 
 Gm6A7
                If words could make wishes come true
 DmDm7B-Gm7Dm
                I'd save every day like a treasure and then
 GmA7
                Again, I would spend them with you.
 DDmaj7
Chorus:         But there never seems to be enough time
| D6 D G Gmaj7
| To do the things you want to do Once you find them
| Em7 A7 D Dmaj7
| I've looked around enough to know
| D6 D G Gmaj7 Em7 A7
| That you're the one I want to go through time with.
 DmDm(maj7Dm7Dm6
                If I had a box just for wishes 
 Gm6A7
                And dreams that had never come true
 DmDm7B-Gm7Dm
                The box would be empty except for the memory 
 Gm7
                Of how they were answered by you

The first thing that I'd like to do

Is to save every day 'till eternity passes away,

Just to spend them with you.

If I could make days last forever,
If words could make wishes come true,
I'd save every day like a treasure and then
Again I would spend them with you.

If I had a box just for wishes,
And dreams that had never come true,
The box would be empty except for the memory of
How they were answered by you.
