A Long Time Ago  Jim Croce

Subject: CRD/LYR/TAB: A long time ago - Jim Croce
A few days ago someone asked about Photographs and Memories by
John Denver, but actually he or she was reffering to A long time ago
by Jim Croce. So here it is. I TABbed the intro only (due to
lazyness...), which is basically the same as the verse.
A long time ago - Jim Croce
 Intro: G - D - Em - C - G/B - Am - C - G

[G]Seems like such a [D]long time a[Em]go
[C]I was [G/B]walking on [Am]lone[C]ly [G]road
[G]Getting tired of [D]dreamin' a[Em]lone
[C]Like all the [G/B]lonely people [Am]I [C]had [G]known
Seems like such a long time ago
There was no-one who would share my song
I was just a boy far from home
And I became a man when you came along
[C]We [C/B]spent the [Am]whole [Am/G]night tal[Em]king
You [D]said you'd [C]like to [G]see the [D]sun [G]rise
[C]But [C/B]in the [Am]gold [Am/G]of mor[Em]ning
There was nothing [D]that I [C]had not [G]seen in [D]your [G]eyes
[Em] [D]  
[C]I was so af[G/B]raid to touch you
[A]Thought you were too [G]young to know
[C]So I just watched you [C/B]sleeping[Am] [Em] [D]
[C]Then you woke and [G/B]said to me
The [Am]night is cold it [G]frightens me
[C]I could sleep so [C/B]easy next to [Am]you[Em] [D]
Wasn't very long ago
You said that you would like to share my road
Then you started singing my song
You said so many nights are waiting
Let's not spent a moment waisting time
'Cause we have very far to go
I will go if you will take me
I have never had a lover
I am young but I am so alone
We spent the whole night talking
But in the gold of morning
[Em]Hmm[D]m, [D7]mmm [G]mmm
