Subject: Lyr/Chords Add: ANOTHER TIME AND PLACE (D Van Ronk
Hi Frank:

I don't have my guitar in front of me or my wordbook (as I am at work) but I think this is just about how it goes.
Try it. If it doesn't work, get back to me, as I often sing it. Usually with a capo on fret 2. DVR sang it even higher around fret: number four I think!

(Dave Van Ronk)

When first I met you years ago
G D (add 9)
In another time and place,
The thought came to my mind
I'd never seen a kinder face,
No warmer smile, or gentler laugh,
A (sus) A
Or eyes so full of light.
I'd be a fool if I didn't fall in love
With you that night.
We tramped around the world, my dear.
Our fortune was to roam.
And each place I have been with you,
That place has been my home.
But as I wonder on alone
With no place to abide,
I'll feel content that I was sent
Your wanderings by my side.

Love that blossoms in the night
Can't stand the test of time.
It comes and goes.
It ebbs and flows
No reason reach nor rhyme.
But as each day becomes another day,
Each year another year,
I'd trade a year in heaven
For a day with you, my dear.

The miles flow on and I am gone
To a wild and empty land,
Where time is like an empty room
And space an empty hand;
And the things we did and the jokes we made
Are just echoes in the waste;
But we'll meet again where those hills are green
In another time and place.
Yes, we'll meet again where those hills are green
In another time and place.
