                    Tomorrow is a Long Time - NICKEL CREEK
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Tabbed by: Jake Denmark

This is a great cover of the Bob Dylan song from Nickel Creek's
"Why Should the Fire Die?" album. It's not exactly how they play it, 
but it sounds close and it's easy to play on a single guitar.

INTRO:
G C (x4)

VERSE 1:

G                   C       G        C
If today was not an endless highway
G                    C       G
If tonight was not a crooked trail
   C        D             G          C
If tomorrow wasn't such a long time
     C                   D             G
Then lonesome would mean nothing me at all

CHORUS:
         C          D                 G
Yes, and only if my own true love was waitin'
         C                   D              G
And if I could hear his heart softly poundin'
         C       D             G
Yes and only if  he was lyin' by me
         C         D          G C G C G C G C
Would I lie in my bed once again.

VERSE 2:

I can't see my reflection in the water
I can't speak the sounds that show no pain
I can't hear the echo of my footsteps
Or can't remember the sound of my own name

CHORUS

(solos)

VERSE 3:

There's beauty in that silver, singing river
There's beauty in that sunrise in the sky
But none of these and nothing else can touch the beauty
That I remember in my true love's eyes

CHORUS
