Paul Kelly - Before Too Long
Read '>' as emphasis, '.' as stacato, and 'x' as no chord.

Before too long
    Em              G           A              D         G    D
The one that you're lovin' will wish that he'd never met you
           A
Before too long
Em        G            A        D         G    A
He who is nothin' will suddenly come into view

             G                   D
So let the time keep rollin' on
           A    Em
It's on my side
       G                           D
Lonely nights will soon be gone
            A
High is the tide

           A
Before too long
Em        G           A           D           G   D
We'll be together and no-one will tear us apart

Before too long
    Em            G        A            D         G    A
The words will be spoken I know all the action by heart

[Chorus 2]
       G                    D             A    Em
As the night time follows day I'm closing in
      G                   D             A
Every dog will have his day Any dog can win

[Bridge]
Em                G
   Shut the shade
          D        A
Do not fear any more
Em           G              D
   Here I come creeping round

Your back door

           A

Over and over just like a hammer inside
