[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--------?

   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---------?

It really makes the time spent worthwhile to hear great comments, and to know someone else gets enjoyment out of playing these tabs. I always hope that's the case, but not everyone takes the time to leave a message, so thank you.

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.
