Paul Kelly - Before Too Long chords

Before Too Long  Paul Kelly (Chords and Solo)

Original is as below. Live versions Capo 2! (higher!)

             A(4)    Em(2)         G(2)           A(2)         D(2)     G(4)    D(4)
Before too long the one that you're lovin' will wish that he'd never met you
           A(4)  Em(2)    G(2)         A(2)      D(2)      G(4)  A(4)
Before too long He who is nothin' will suddenly come into view

             G(4)             D             A
So let the time keep rollin' on, it's on my side
Em      G                          D              A
  Lonely nights will soon be gone High is the tide


G(2)  D(4)  G(2) D(1!)


           A    Em         G           A         D         G    D
Before too long we'll be together and no-one will tear us apart
           A    Em         G           A         D         G    A
Before too long the words will be spoken I know all the action by heart

       G(4)                D             A    
As the night time follows day I'm closing in
Em      G                   D             A
    Every dog will have his day, any dog can win


Em(4)             G             D        A
   Shut the shade, do not fear any more
Em           G              D              A(4)  G(2)  D(4) G(3) D(4) G(4) D(1)
   Here I come creeping round your back door


[Guitar Solo 1] shown below (over chords of first chorus and verse)


           A(4)   Em(2)    G(2)         A         D         G    D
Before too long I'll be repeating what's happened before in my mind
           A      Em      G    A           D         G    A
Before too long, over and over just like a hammer inside

       G(4)               D             A   
As the night time follows day I'm closing in
Em       G                   D             A   G(2) D(4) G(2) D(1)
   Every dog will have his day, any dog can win


           A(4)    Em(2)  G(2)  A(2) D(2) G(4) D(4)
Before too long (before too long)
           A(4)  Em(2)  G(2)    A(2) D(2) G(4) A(4)
Before too long (before too long)

*The second block could be played in 7th position but becomes a bit tricky to work 
back to open position for last section.
