Subject: Who Knows...Time Goes
I know most here are way beyond intermediate, much less beginning guitarists. Still, I just came across a very nice version of The Denny classic "Who Knows Where The time Goes" and thought I'd share it.

I've played it fingerstyle for a very long time (since I first heard it on a Kate Wolf vinyl) but thought this simple strumming version as done by Eva Cassidy might be fun to share.

It's played with lots of open strings ringing -- gives it that sort of "alternate tuning" sound, though it's in standard. Hope you enjoy it.

Who Knows Where The Time Goes
Sandy Denny

022100 244200 466400 244200 022100
022100 Across the evening sky
244200All the birds are 466400 leaving 244200
But 022100 how can they know
244200 It's time for them to 466400 go? 244200
Before the winter fire 466400
244200 I will still be 466400 dreaming
577600 577700 I do not 577600 count the 022100 time
For 799800 who knows where the 577600 time goes?
022100 Who knows 244200 where the 566400 time 244200 022100goes?

Sad deserted shore
your fickle friends are leaving
Ah, then you know
It's time for them to go
But I will still be here
I have no thought of leaving
You know I have no thought of time
For who knows where the time goes?
Who knows where the time goes?

And I am not alone
While my love is near me
I know it will be so
Until it's time to go
So come the storms of winter
And then the birds in spring again
I do not fear the time
For who knows where the time goes?
Who knows where the time goes?
