        Time In A Bottle - Jim Croce

Tabbed By Burnee @ ntlworld.com


These chords may look complicated but really they are very 
simple, once you have strung them together. This is the closest 
I can get to the recording and still play it on one guitar.

  D5/D          DMaj7no3/D D7no3/D  G/D             
If I could save time in a  bottle
     Gm   Gm6   Gm7  Gm  Gm7  Gm6 A7 G7no3/F Emno5/G Gmno5/A# Fno5add2/A Emno5/G
The first thing that I'd like to do
      D5/D       DMaj7no3/D D7no3/D         G/D             
Is to save every day till   eternity passes away
Gm6   Gm7  Gm  Gm7  Gm6 A7 G7no3/F Emno5/G Gmno5/A# Fno5add2/A Emno5/G
Just to spend them with you.


  D5/D          DMaj7no3/D D7no3/D  G/D 
If I could make days last  forever
     Gm   Gm6   Gm7  Gm  Gm7  Gm6 A7 G7no3/F Emno5/G Gmno5/A# Fno5add2/A Emno5/G
If words could make wishes come true
    D5/D       DMaj7no3/  D D7no3/D    G/D
I'd save every day like a treasure and then
     Gm   Gm6   Gm7  Gm  Gm7  Gm6 A7 G7no3/F Emno5/G Gmno5/A# Fno5add2/A Emno5/G
Again, I would spend them with you.


          D              DMaj7
But there never seems to be enough time
   D                 DMaj7               G        GMaj7/F# Em A7 Em9no5 Emno5
To do the things you want to do Once you find them
     D              DMaj7
I've looked around enough to know
   D                 DMaj7               G        GMaj7/F# Em A7 Em9no5 Emno5  Dmno5/Riff 2
That you're the one I want to go through time with.


   D5/D          DMaj7no3/D D7no3/D  G/D 
If I had a box just for wishes
     Gm   Gm6   Gm7  Gm  Gm7  Gm6 A7 G7no3/F Emno5/G Gmno5/A# Fno5add2/A Emno5/G
And dreams that had never come true
    D5/D         DMaj7no3/D D7no3/D         G/D
The box would be empty      except for the memory
     Gm   Gm6   Gm7  Gm  Gm7  Gm6 A7 G7no3/F Emno5/G Gmno5/A# Fno5add2/A Emno5/G
Of how they were answered by you

          D              DMaj7
But there never seems to be enough time
   D                 DMaj7               G        GMaj7/F# Em A7 Em9no5 Emno5
To do the things you want to do Once you find them
     D              DMaj7
I've looked around enough to know
   D                 DMaj7               G        GMaj7/F# Em A7 Em9no5 Emno5  Dmno5/Riff 2      
That you're the one I want to go through time with.
