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
Chorus:
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.
Chorus
(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
someone asked for this, my favorite song.

LYRICS:
In the quiet silent seconds I turned off the light switch and I came down to meet you in the half light the moon left while a cluster of night jars sang some songs out of tune and a mantle of bright light shone down from a room
come down in time i still hear her say so clear in my ears like it was today. come down in time was the message she gave come down in time and i'll meet you halfway.
Well i don't know if i should have heard her as yet but a true love like hers is a hard love to get and I Walked most all the way and I ain't heard her call and I'm getting to thinking is she coming at all
come down in time i still hear her say so clear in my ears like it was today. come down in time was the message she gave come down in time and i'll meet you halfway.
There are women and women and some hold you tight while some leave you counting the stars in the night.
