COME DOWN IN TIME
ELTON JOHN BERNIE TAUPIN
Am7 Bm7 In the quiet, silent seconds I
Am7 Bm7 I turned off the light switch and I
Cmaj7 Bm7 I came down to meet you
Dm7 E7 in the half-light the moon left while a
Am7 Bm7 cluster of night jars sang some
Am7 Bm7 songs out of tune.
Cmaj7 Bm7 A mantel of bright light shone
Dm7 E7 down from her room
Fmaj7 Em7 Dm7 Cmaj7 Come down in time, I still hear her say
Fmaj7 Em7 Dm7 Cmaj7 So clear in my ear, like it was today.
Fmaj7 Ab Cmaj Bm7 Am7 Gm7 Come down in time was the message she gave
Fmaj7 Ebmaj7 Dm7 F 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.
Am7 Bm7 There are women and women and
Am7 Bm7 some hold you tight while
Cmaj7 Bm7 some leave you counting the
Em7 Bm7 F C/G D stars in the night
