Tomorrow Is a Long Time chords
Bob Dylan 1962 *

     G              C       G
If today was not an endless highway
                     C       G
If tonight was not a crooked trail
       C    D             G
If tomorrow wasn't such a long time
     C                   D                 G
Then lonesome would mean nothing to you at all

         C          D                 G
Yes, and only if my own true love was waiting
         C                   D              G
Yes, and if I could hear her heart a softly pounding
C       D             G
Only if she was lying by me
         C         D         G
Then I'd lie in my bed once again.

  G                       C      G
I can't see my reflection in the water
                              C       G
I can't speak the sounds that show no pain
        C        D          G
I can't hear the echo of my footsteps
   C                  D               G
Or can't remember the sound of my own name

         C          D                 G
Yes, and only if my own true love was waiting
         C                   D              G
Yes, and if I could hear her heart a softly pounding
C       D             G
Only if she was lying by me
         C         D         G
Then I'd lie in my bed once again.

        G                     C       G
There's beauty in the silver, singing river
                              C       G
There's beauty in the sunrise in the sky
    C                 D                          G
But none of these and nothing else can touch the beauty
         C            D           G
That I remember in my true love's eyes.

         C          D                 G
Yes, and only if my own true love was waiting
         C                   D              G
Yes, and if I could hear her heart a softly pounding
C       D             G
Only if she was lying by me
         C         D         G
Then I'd lie in my bed once again.

Nice tab!
The timing in the verses looks wrong to me, though (But then I don't know which recording was tabbed here). On both the officially released Dylan recordings the timing is different and so are the keys (on "Witmark Demos" he plays in E and the live Version on "Side Tracks" is in Bb). Whatever, the change to the second chord on these recordings is later than it is suggested here: If to[G]day was not an [C]endless [C]highway etc. The rest is fine!

Thank you! I haven't looked at this song in years. I believe you are correct...moving the C over a couple of words improves it. It's hard to find an "original" Dylan on You Tube....the live version is not very good. But from memory...I believe you are spot on.
Thanks again for the heads up.

So simple, yet so daunting due to the original recording. Thanks for posting the correct chords and lyrics!
