[Verse 1]
      E                   F#m11/E              Emaj7        F#m11/E
A - cross the evening sky,        all the birds are leaving---------,
E                        F#m11/E                   Emaj7    F#m11/E
   But how can they know....     it's time for them to go-----------!


[Verse 2]
F#m                    G#m    Am                     G#m      A
     Before the winter fire,      I will still be dreaming,
A     A4       A         E    E4 E    Badd11               Aadd9
   I have no thought of time,      for who knows where the time goes?
E                      F#m7   A    F#m7
   Who knows where the time goes--------?

E                     F#m11/E                   Emaj7       F#m11/E
   Sad deserted shore,       your fickle friends are leaving--------,
E                       F#m11/E                     Emaj7   F#m11/E
   Ah, but then you know    ...it's time for them to go-------------!


[Verse 4]
      F#m           G#m      Am             G#m                 A
But... I will still be here,     I have no thought of leaving,
A      A4      A         E   E4 E   Badd11               Aadd9
   I...do not count the time,     for who knows where the time goes?
E                      F#m7       A     F#m7
   Who knows where the time----- goes--------?

    E               F#m11/E          Emaj7             F#m11/E
And I am not alone,         while my love is near me-----------,
E                      F#m11/E                    Emaj7   F#m11/E
  I know it will be so,        until it's time to go-------------!


[Verse 6]
   F#m                 G#m   Am                        G#m          A
So come the storms of winter,   and then the birds of spring again,
A    A4       A        E    E4 E     Badd11           Aadd9
   I have no fear of time,       for who knows how my love grows?
     E                  F#m7   A      F#m7
And who knows where the time goes---------?

You're welcome - it's a shame that the other tab on here is very basic.

I could never have worked this one out by ear, but it;s surprisingly playable.

Not many people seem to know this but Sandy Denny wrote the song, and recorded it with the Strawbs before she was in Fairport Convention.

Great tab - haven't braved this at any folk gatherings yet, but it's coming along... chords sound braw - thanks.

Sandy Denny is the kind of singer that almost makes me want to give up sometimes she's so impeccable and powerful, but then, she was already on TV when she was 15 or 16 I think (!)
