Life Is A Long Song chords (version 1)
Jethro Tull (Ian Anderson)

Capo VII (for fingerpicking only)

D C G  4x

            D        C            D                 C   A  A7
When you're falling awake and you take stock of the new day,
        D               C            D                 C       A  A7
and you hear your voice croak as you choke on what you need to say,
                F               C
well, don't you fret, don't you fear,
       G             A    A7
I will give you good cheer.

D                 C G
Life's a long song.
D                 C G
Life's a long song.
D                 C
Life's a long song.
       G                           A
If you wait then your plate I will fill.

       D        C             D                C    A  A7
As the verses unfold and your soul suffers the long day,
        D              C               D
and the twelve o'clock gloom spins the room,
             C       A  A7
you struggle on your way.
                F               C
Well, don't you sigh, don't you cry,
         G              A   A7
lick the dust from your eye.

D                 C G
Life's a long song.
D                 C G
Life's a long song.
D                 C
Life's a long song.
        G                          A   A7
We will meet in the sweet light of dawn.

       D            C                 D                  C   A    A7
As the Baker Street train spills your pain all over your new dress,
        D        C           D              C        A   A7
and the symphony sounds underground put you under duress,
               F             C               G         A    A7
well don't you squeal as the heel grinds you under the wheel.

D                 C G
Life's a long song.
D                 C G
Life's a long song.
D                 C
Life's a long song.
        G                         A
But the tune ends too soon for us all.

D C D C A A7

        G                         A   D C G   A
But the tune ends too soon for us all.
