Long ago and far away  James Taylor

              [Bm]Long ago a young man [E]sits and [A]plays his waiting game
              But [F#m]things are not the [F#m7]same it seems as [Bm]in such tender [E]dreams
              [Bm]Slowly passing sailing [E]ships and S[A]unda[Am7]y after[D]noon
              [F#m]Like people on the [F#m7]moon I see are [Bm]things not meant to [E7]be
Where do those golden rainbows end
                          [Am7]Why is this s[E]ong so sad
                          [Am7]Dreaming the dreams I've [E]dreamed my friend
                          [Am7]Loving the [E]love I love to...
              [Bm]Love is just a word I [E]heard when [A]things are [Am7]being [D]said
              [F#m]Stories my poor [F#m7]head has told me [Bm]cannot stand the [E]cold
              [Bm]And in between what might have [E]been and [A]what has [Am7]come to[D] pass
              A [F#m]misbegotten guess alas and [Bm]bits of broken g[E7]lass
Where do your golden rainbows end
                        [Am7]Why is this song I [E]sing so sad
                        [Am7]Dreaming the dreams I [E]dream my friend
                        [Am7]Loving the [E]love I love to [Am7]love... to [E]love..

[Abm]Long ag[Eb/Ab]o a you[Abm7]ng man s[B/Db]its and pl[F#maj7]ays his waiting [Bmaj7]game
But th[Bbm]ings are n[F/Bb]ot the s[Bbm7]ame it [Ebm7]seems, as [Abm7]in such tender dr[B/Db]eams
[Abm]Slowly [Eb/Ab]passing [Abm7]sailing [B/Db]ships and [F#maj7]Sunday afternoon[Bmaj7]
Like p[Bbm]eople [F/Bb]on the [Bbm7]moon I [Ebm7]see are [Abm7]things not meant to [B/Db]be
[F#maj9]Where do those golden [Bmaj9]rainbows end

And [Abm]in be-[Eb/Ab]tween what [Abm7]might have [B/Db]been and [F#maj7]what has come to[Bmaj7] pass
A [Bbm]mis-be-[F/Bb]gotten [Bbm7]guess a-[Ebm7]las and [Abm7]bits of broken glass[B/Db]
