Come Down In Time - Taupin/John
I heard this song performed by Al Kooper's band in the late 70's. I picked up the chords from listening it on the radio. I may not be the actual chords, but represent an amazing simulation! The fret and root string are in parenthesis after the chord itself, to give you an idea of how I play it.
Am7 (V-6) Bm7(VII-6) In the quiet, silent seconds I
Am7 (V-6) Bm7(VII-6) I turned off the light switch and I
Cmaj7 (VIII-6) Bm7(VII-6) I came down to meet you
Dm7 (V-5) E7sus4 E7 (II-4) in the half-light the moon left while a
Am7 (V-6) Bm7(VII-6) cluster of night jars sang some
Am7 (V-6) Bm7(VII-6) songs out of tune.
Cmaj7 (VIII-6) Bm7(VII-6) A mantel of bright light shone
Dm7 (V-5) E7sus4 E7 (II-4) down from her (a?) room
Fmaj7 (VIII-5) Em7 (VII-5) Dm7 (V-5) Cmaj7 (VIII-6) Come down in time, I still hear her say
Fmaj7 (VIII-5) Em7 (VII-5) Dm7 (V-5) Cmaj7 (VIII-6) So clear in my ear, like it was today.
Fmaj7 (VIII-5) Ab (VIII-6) Cmaj(VIII-6) Bm7 (VII-6) Am7 (V-6) Gm7 (III-6) Come down in time was the message she gave
Fmaj7 (III-4) Ebmaj7(I-4) Dm7 (open) F (I-6) C/G D Come down in time and I'll meet you half way.
Well, I don't know if I should have
heard her as yet but a
a true love like ours is a a hard love to get and I
I've walked most all the way and I
I ain't heard her call and I
I'm getting to thinking if she's
coming at all.
(In Al Kooper's version, they improvise over an up-tempo Am7 and Bm7 here)
Am7 (V-6) Bm7(VII-6) There are women and women and
Am7 (V-6) Bm7(VII-6) some hold you tight while
Cmaj7 (VIII-6) Bm7(VII-6) some leave you counting the
Em7 (VII-5) Bm7(VII-6) F C/G D stars in the night
