Another Time and Place chords
Dave Van Ronk 1995 (From Another Time and Place album)

Capo II

 D G D  2x  Bm D G A  ( A Asus4 A )   D G D D 
When first I met you years ago, 
     G D 
in another time and place 
  
A thought came to my mind,
           G D  
I'd never seen a kinder face
 Bm D 
Or warmer laugh and gentler smile,
    G A     ( A / Asus4 / A ) 
or eyes so full of light
     D  
I'd be a fool if I didn't fall 
    G D 
in love with you that night

 D G D D 
We've tramped around the world my dear, 
     G D 
our fortune was to roam 
  
But each place that I've been with you, 
      G D 
that place has been my home
 Bm D 
If now I wander on alone, 
      G A    ( A / Asus4 / A )
with no place to abide 
      D 
I'll be content for I was sent, 
       G D 
those wanderings at your side

 D G D D 
Love that blossoms in the night, 
       G D 
can't stand the test of time 

It ebbs and flows it comes and goes, 
    G D 
no reason reach nor rhyme
    Bm D 
As each day becomes another day, 

      G A    ( A / Asus4 / A )
each year another year
     D  
I'd trade a year in heaven,
       G D 
for a day with you my dear

 D G D D 
The miles flow on and I am gone, 
      G D 
to a wild and empty land 

Time is like an empty room, 
     G D 
and space an empty hand
         Bm D 
And the things we said and the jokes we made, 
     G A     ( A / Asus4 / A )
are echoes in the waste 
       D 
we'll meet again when hills are green, 
     G D 
in another time and place

 D G D  2x  Bm D G A  ( A Asus4 A )   D G D D 
When first I met you years ago, 
     G D 
in another time and place 
  
A thought came to my mind,
           G D  
I'd never seen a kinder face
 Bm D 
Or warmer laugh and gentler smile,
    G A     ( A / Asus4 / A ) 
or eyes so full of light
     D  
I'd be a fool if I didn't fall 
    G D 
in love with you that night

 D G D
