Johnny Mcevoy – Long Long Before Your Time chords

Chords
Transpose:
     Another super simple but superbly emotive Irish tune,
     this one written and recorded by Johnny McEvoy. The simplicity
     and repetition of the chords mean you need to phrase it well
     to stop it sounding boring. A great tune to start picking on.

G G C D G You ask me why I look so sad, On this bright summer's day
G G C D G And why the tears are in my eyes, And I seem so far away
G G C D G Well sit yourself beside me love, And put your hand in mine
G G C D G G And I'll tell you of someone I loved, Long long before your time
G G C D G Well I'm sitting here and thinking of, Those days, So long ago
G G C D G When I was just a child like you, And the girl I used to know
G G C D G Through fields of green,We laughed and played,And sang our merry rhymes
G G C D G G Oh summer days were warmer then, Long long before your time
G G Through childhood years, Our love did bloom,
C D G 'Till our hearts were just as one
G G C D G And we promised each eternal love, In the church below the town
G G C D G We settled in this little house, I was proud to call her mine
G G C D G G Oh we were young and happy then, Long long before your time
INSTRUMENTAL: G G C D G G
G G C D G One lovely year was all we had, Until the sickness came
G G C D G And stole the roses from her cheeks, My tears they fell like rain
G G C D G For nine long months, She carried you, But in the end she died
G G C D G G She chose to go, So you might live, Long long before your time
G G C D G So you ask me why I look so sad, On this bright summers day
G G C D G And why the tears are in my eyes, And I seem so far away
G G C D G It's just you seem a lot like her, When your eyes look into mine
G G C D G G And you smile, So much like she did, Long long before your time
G G C D G And you smile, So much like she did, Long long before your time
