This is my first time submitting any tabs but I figured I'd try it out.

*note - start on G refers to the note you start singing on.

G                 D          Em
Seems like such a long time ago
C     G/B        Am  C  G
I was walking on lonely road
G                D         Em
Getting tired of dreamin' alone
C            G/B           Am C   G
Like all the lonely people I  had known

G                 D          Em
Seems like such a long time ago
C          G/B               Am  C  G
There was no-one who would share my song
G             D            Em
I was just a boy far from home
C              G/B        Am  C  G
And I became a man when you came along

C  C/B       Am    Am/G     Em
We spent the whole night talking
    D          C       G       D   G
You said you'd like to see the sun rise
C   C/B    Am   Am/G  Em
But in the gold of morning
                  D      C       G       D    G
There was nothing that I had not seen in your eyes
Em   D
Hmmm

C          G/B
I was so afraid to touch you
A                    G
Thought you were too young to know
C                     C/B        Am Em D
So I just watched you sleeping
C                 G/B
Then you woke and said to me
    Am               G
The night is cold it frightens me
C                C/B          Am Em D
I could sleep so easy next to you

G            D     Em
Wasn't very long ago
C              G/B                Am  C  G
You said that you would like to share my road
G                 D          Em
Then you started singing my song

C          G/B
You said so many nights are waiting
A                    G
Let's not spent a moment waisting time
C                     C/B        Am Em D
'Cause we have very far to go
C                 G/B
I will go if you will take me
    Am               G
I have never had a lover
C                     C/B        Am Em D
I am young but I am so alone


C  C/B       Am    Am/G     Em
We spent the whole night talking
    D          C       G       D   G
You said you'd like to see the sun rise
C   C/B    Am   Am/G  Em
But in the gold of morning
                  D      C       G       D    G
There was nothing that I had not seen in your eyes
Em   D
Hmmm
Em D   D7  G
Hmmm,  mmm mmm

Sounds nice. Thanks for posting it. It would be great if you could have added the tabs for the chorus as well. There's a lot going on there.
