Al Stewart - Time Passages

VERSE 1
Eb / / /                          Gm / Ab /              
It was late in December. The sky turned to snow.
Ab / Bb /                (Cm-Bb-Ab)
All'round the day was going down slow. 
Eb / / /                       Gm / Ab /            
Night, like a river, beginning to flow
Ab / Bb /                  (Cm-Bb-Ab)           
I felt the beat of my mind go drifting into

CHORUS
Eb///  Eb///           { Eb/ - Bb/ - C / - F/ }                      
time passages. Years go falling in the fading light. 
Eb///   Eb///    Ab///         Gm/         Bb/          Eb///
Time passages.  Buy me a ticket on the last train home tonight.

VERSE 2
Eb / / /                        Gm / Ab /         
Well, I'm not the kind to live in the past.
Ab / Bb /                        (Cm-Bb-Ab)
The years run too short and the days too fast. 
Eb / / /                       Gm / Ab /      
The things you lean on are things that don't last. 
Ab / Bb /                        (Cm-Bb-Ab)     
Well it's just now and then my line gets cast into these

CHORUS
Eb///         Eb///           { Eb/ - Bb/ - C / - F/ }   
time passages.  There's something back there that you left behind.
Eb/// Eb///    Ab///       Gm/  Bb/                 Eb/// 
Time passages.  Buy me a ticket on the last train home tonight.
 
BRIDGE
B /// B /// 
Hear the echoes and feel yourself starting
Eb /// Eb ///
to turn. 
B / / / B / / / 
Don't know why you should feel that 
///                  C///     F///
there's something to learn.

Eb / / /                         Gm / Ab /                 
Well, the picture is changing. Now you're part of a crowd. 
Ab / Bb /                        (Cm-Bb-Ab)
They're laughing at something, the music's loud. 
Eb / / /                          Gm / Ab /            
A girl comes toward you you once used to know.
