Guitar Tabs, Chords and Lyrics

Long ago and far away  James Taylor

              [Dm]Long ago a young man [G]sits and [C]plays his waiting game
              But [Am]things are not the [Am7]same it seems as [Dm]in such tender [G]dreams
              [Dm]Slowly passing sailing [G]ships and S[C]unda[Cm7]y after[F]noon
              [Am]Like people on the [Am7]moon I see are [Dm]things not meant to [G7]be
Where do those golden rainbows end
                          [Cm7]Why is this s[G]ong so sad
                          [Cm7]Dreaming the dreams I've [G]dreamed my friend
                          [Cm7]Loving the [G]love I love to...
              [Dm]Love is just a word I [G]heard when [C]things are [Cm7]being [F]said
              [Am]Stories my poor [Am7]head has told me [Dm]cannot stand the [G]cold
              [Dm]And in between what might have [G]been and [C]what has [Cm7]come to[F] pass
              A [Am]misbegotten guess alas and [Dm]bits of broken g[G7]lass
Where do your golden rainbows end
                        [Cm7]Why is this song I [G]sing so sad
                        [Cm7]Dreaming the dreams I [G]dream my friend
                        [Cm7]Loving the [G]love I love to [Cm7]love... to [G]love..

[Bm]Long ag[F#/B]o a you[Bm7]ng man s[D/E]its and pl[Amaj7]ays his waiting [Dmaj7]game
But th[C#m]ings are n[G#/C#]ot the s[C#m7]ame it [F#m7]seems, as [Bm7]in such tender dr[D/E]eams
[Bm]Slowly [F#/B]passing [Bm7]sailing [D/E]ships and [Amaj7]Sunday afternoon[Dmaj7]
Like p[C#m]eople [G#/C#]on the [C#m7]moon I [F#m7]see are [Bm7]things not meant to [D/E]be
[Amaj9]Where do those golden [Dmaj9]rainbows end
[Amaj9]      Why is this song so [Dmaj9]sad
[Amaj9]Dreaming the dreams I'[Dmaj9]ve dreamed my friend
[Amaj9]Loving the [Dmaj9]love I l[Amaj9]ove to...
[Bm]Love is [F#/B]just a [Bm7]word I h[D/E]eard when [Amaj7]things are being[Dmaj7] said
[C#m]Stories [G#/C#]my poor [C#m7]head has [F#m7]told me [Bm7]cannot stand the [D/E]cold

[Amaj9]Dreaming the dreams I [Dmaj9]dream my friend
