TIME IN A BOTTLE  Jim Croce

                If [Dm]I could save [Dm(maj7]time in a [Dm7]bottle[Dm6]
                The [Gm6]first thing that I'd like to [A7]do
                Is to [Dm]save every [Dm7]day till [B-]eternity [Gm7]passes [Dm]away
                Just to [Gm]spend them with [A7]you.
                If [Dm]I could make [Dm(maj7]days last [Dm7]forever[Dm6]
                If w[Gm6]ords could make wishes come t[A7]rue
                I'd sa[Dm]ve every da[Dm7]y like a [B-]treasure [Gm7]and the[Dm]n
                Again, I[Gm] would spend the[A7]m with you.
Chorus:         But there [D]never seems to [Dmaj7]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.
                If [Dm]I had a box [Dm(maj7]just for [Dm7]wishes[Dm6]
                And [Gm6]dreams that had never come [A7]true
                The [Dm]box would be [Dm7]empty [B-]except for the [Gm7]memory[Dm]
                Of how [Gm]they were answer[7]ed by you
(CHORUS)

If [Dm]I could save [Dm(maj7]time in a b[Dm7]ottle,[Dm6]
The f[Gm6]irst thing that I'd like to [A7]do
Is to s[Dm]ave every [Dm7]day 'till e[B-]ternity p[Gm7]asses a[Dm]way,
Just to s[Gm]pend them with [A7]you.
[Cborus] 
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.
[Cborus] 
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.
[Cborus] 
Chorus:
But there ne[D]ver seems to[Dmaj7] be enough time
To [D6]do the tings you w[D]ant to do once you f[G]ind them[Gmaj7]
[1 Em7]bar]   [3/A7]4 bar] I've loo[D]ked around en[Dmaj7]ough to know
That y[D6]ou're the one I w[D]ant to go through t[G]ime with.
   [Gmaj7]1 bar]      [Em7]1 bar]   [1 A7]bar]
On the last go 'round, play and hold Dm.
