Tuning: standard

This a great song, but with a ton of ghost notes. I threw in everything I heard, so 
will probably be a few notes that might seem unnecessary in some parts. Play what sounds 
to you
let ring throughout + fingerpick

   Older chests reveal themselves
   like a crack in the wall,
   starting small,
   grow with time.

   And we all seem to need the help
   of someone else,
   to mend that shelf
   with too many books.
   Read me your favorite line.

   Papa went to other lands,
   he found someone who understands
   the ticking,
   the western man's need to cry.

   He came back the other day.
   Some things in life may change,
   and some things, they stay the same.
   Like time.

 [chorus]
                         There's always time
                         So pass me by,

                         on my mind.
                         I'll be fine,

                        -
                        just give me time.

   Older gents sit on the fence,
   with a cap in hand,
   looking grim.
   They watch their city change.

   Children scream, or so it seems
   louder than before
   out a door, and into stores
   with bigger names.

   Mama tried to watch their faces
   but these kids, they lost their graces,
   and daddy lost at the races
   too many times.

   She broke down the other day.
   Some things in life may change,
   but some things, they stay the same.
   Like time.

   [chorus] [x2]
