1st fret
'The Longest Time', Billy Joel. Enjoy!!!

Capo on 1st fret!

[Chorus]

D   A   D  G  
Oh, oh, oh
A                   D
For the longest time
A   D  G
Oh, oh, oh
A
For the longest time
D      A        G            A
If you said goodbye to me tonight
D           A        E             A
There would still be music left to write
F#              Bm   
What else could I do
A7         D    D7
I'm so inspired by you
G          Em               A       D
That hasn't happened for the longest time


[Verse]

D      A          G             A
Once I thought my innocence was gone
D      A        E              A 
Now I know that happiness goes on
F#              Bm
Thats where you found me
A7                D     D7
When you put your arms around me
G        Em                 A         D
I havent been there for the longest time


[Chorus]

D   A   D  G
Oh, oh, oh
A                   D
For the longest time
A   D     G
Oh, oh, oh
A
For the longest
D       A           G              A
Im that voice youre hearing in the hall
D       A        E          A
And the greatest miracle of all
F#       Bm
Is how I need you
A7           D     D7
And how you needed me too
G       Em                  A       D
That hasnt happened for the longest time


[Verse]

A               Bm
Maybe this wont last very long
    F#7
But you feel so right
    D
And I could be wrong
A              Bm
Maybe Ive been hoping too hard
E7      
But Ive gone this far
        A
And its more than I hoped for

D         A        G              A
Who knows how much further well go on
D      A      E               A   
Maybe Ill be sorry when youre gone
F#         Bm
Ill take my chances
A7            D    D7
I forgot how nice romance is
G        Em                 A       D  
I havent been there for the longest time

A            Bm
I had second thoughts at the start
   F#7
I said to myself
     D
Hold on to your heart
A              Bm
Now I know the woman that you are
      E7
Youre wonderful so far
        A
And its more than I hoped for
D       A        G               A
I dont care what consequence it brings
D       A        E             A
I have been a fool for lesser things
F#         Bm
I want you so bad
A7          D        D7    
I think you ought to know that
G           Em               A       D
I intend to hold you for the longest time
