VERSE:
    G
    I KNOW THAT HEARTS WERE LOVING
          D
    LONG BEFORE I WAS HERE
    AND I'M NOT THE FIRST TO EVER CRY
           G
    IN MY BED OR IN MY BEER
                 C
    THERE WERE SONGS BEFORE THERE WAS RADIO
         G                  Em
    OF LOVE THAT STAYS AND LOVE THAT GOES
               Am
    THEY WERE WRITING MELONCHOLY TUNES
          C                  D
    AND TEARFUL WORDS THAT RHYME
               G
    BEFORE MY TIME
   D           G
    BEFORE MY TIME

VERSE:
    THERE WERE SONGS IN OLD DUSTY BOOKS
    OF LOVE THATS ALWAYS BEEN
    SWEET LOVERS IN THEIR GLORY
    WHO ARE NOW GONE WITH THE WIND
    OLD FASHION LOVE WORDS SPOKEN THEN
    KEEP COMING BACK AROUND AGAIN
    NOTHINGS CHANGED EXCEPT THE NAMES
    THEIR LOVE BURNS JUST LIKE MINE
    BEFORE MY TIME
    BEFORE MY TIME

BREAK:
        C
    AND IN THE DIM OF YESTERDAY
    G
    I CAN CLEARLY SEE
           C
    THAT FLESH AND BLOOD CRIED OUT TO SOMEONE
    G             D
    AS IT DOES IN ME
                   G
    AND THERE WAS SOME OLD SONG THAT SAID
       C
    I LOVE YOU 'TIL I DIE
               G
    BEFORE MY TIME
   D           G
    BEFORE MY TIME

VERSE:
    BUT WHAT THE OLD TIME MASTERS HAD
    IS WHAT I FEEL FOR YOU
    LOVE IS LOVE AND DOESN'T CHANGE
    IN A CENTURY OR TWO
    IF SOMEWAY THEY HAD SEEN AND KNEW
    HOW IT WOULD BE FOR ME AND YOU
    THEY'D WISH FOR LOVE LIKE YOURS
    AND THEY WOULD WISH FOR LOVE LIKE MINE
    BEFORE MY TIME
    BEFORE MY TIME
