Title:                          TIME IN A BOTTLE                (Jim Croce)

                B- = (xx0331)

                   Dm           Dm(maj7)  Dm7    Dm6
                If I could save time in a bottle
                    Gm6                          A7
                The first thing that I'd like to do
                      Dm         Dm7      B-       Gm7    Dm
                Is to save every day till eternity passes away
                        Gm              A7
                Just to spend them with you.

                   Dm           Dm(maj7)  Dm7    Dm6
                If I could make days last forever
                    Gm6                          A7
                If words could make wishes come true
                      Dm         Dm7      B-       Gm7    Dm
                I'd save every day like a treasure and then
                        Gm              A7
                Again, I would spend them with you.


                          D              Dmaj7
Chorus:         But there never seems to be enough time
     |             D6                D                   G       Gmaj7
     |          To do the things you want to do Once you find them
     |  Em7  A7      D             Dmaj7
     |          I've looked around enough to know
     |               D6               D                  G         Gmaj7 Em7 A7
     |          That you're the one I want to go through time with.


                   Dm          Dm(maj7) Dm7    Dm6
                If I had a box just for wishes
                    Gm6                        A7
                And dreams that had never come true
                    Dm           Dm7   B-             Gm7    Dm
                The box would be empty except for the memory
                       Gm              7
                Of how they were answered by you

                (CHORUS)

If I could save time in a bottle,
     Gm6                         A7
The first thing that I'd like to do
       Dm        Dm7        B-       Gm7    Dm
Is to save every day 'till eternity passes away,
         Gm             A7
Just to spend them with you.

[Chorus]

If I could make days last forever,
If words could make wishes come true,
I'd save every day like a treasure and then
Again I would spend them with you.

[Chorus]

If I had a box just for wishes,
And dreams that had never come true,
The box would be empty except for the memory of
How they were answered by you.

[Chorus]


Chorus:

            D           Dmaj7
But there never seems to be enough time
   D6                D                   G       Gmaj7
To do the tings you want to do once you find them
   Em7       A7             D            Dmaj7
[1 bar]   [3/4 bar] I've looked around enough to know
      D6               D                  G
That you're the one I want to go through time with.
    Gmaj7        Em7         A7
   [1 bar]      [1 bar]   [1 bar]


On the last go 'round, play and hold Dm.
