E  Asus2  E  Asus2  E  Asus2  E  Asus2


E                     Asus2                   E    Asus2
Across the morning sky all the birds are leaving
 E                 Asus2                        E  Asus2
But how can they know it's time for them to go?
  F#m                G#m A                  G#m   A
Before the winter's fire, I will still be dreamin'
I have no thought of time


     B                     A
For who knows where the time goes?
  E                  A    F#m   A  E   E  Asus2  E  Asus2
Who knows where the time goes?


Sad, deserted shore, your fickle friends are leaving
Ah and yet they know it's time for them to go
But I will still be here, I have no thought of leaving
I do not count the time ...CHORUS

And I am not alone, while my love is near
And I know it will be so until it's time to go
So count the storms of winter and then the birds in spring again
I have no fear of time

[Chorus 2]
    B                   A
For who knows how my love grows?
  E                      A    F#m   A  E   E  Asus2  E  Asus2
And who knows where the time goes?

Thanks for this. Song is by Sandy Denny, not a group effort by Fairport Convention. She wrote this masterpiece all by herself. I imagine Richard Thompson may have suggested some of the beautiful chord voicings she used.Also, you might want to listen to the lyric again. For instance, it's "Across the EVENING sky..." which makes more sense given the theme of the song.Also, 1st verse ends with "I do not count the time"2nd with "I have no thought of time"3rd with "I have no fear of time"I think it's a beautiful progression moving from the most cerebral to the most emotional expression.
PS: Richard Thompson plays this in drop-D tuning, which sounds great.

Not as good as the other tab by along way.

It was originally written by Sandy Denny and performed first with the The Strawbs in 1967
