Long Long Before Your Time Song lyrics and guitar chords- Written By Johnny McEvoy And One Of The Favorite Songs On The Site. The youtube video will teach you how to play the song on guitar. Chords are G C and D all the way through. I use a capo on the secont so I'm playing it in the key of A Major.

You[G] ask me why I look so sad on[C] this bright [D]summer's[G] day,
And[G] why the tears are in my eyes and I[C] seem so [D]far a[G]way,
Well[G] sit yourself beside me love,and[C] put your[D] hand in[G] mine,
And I'll[G] tell you of someone I loved long[C] long be[D]fore your[G] time,
[2]
Well[G] im sittin here and thinking of thoes[C] days so [D]long a[G]go,
When I was just a child like you and the [C]girl I [D]used to [G]know,
Through fields of green we laughed and played and [C]sang our [D]merry [G]rhymes,
O we were young and happy then,long ,[C]long be[D]fore your [G]time.
[3]
Through[G] childhood years our love did bloom,till our [C]hearts were [D]just as [G]one,
And we promised each eternal love in the [C]church be[D]low the [G]town,
We settled in this little house I was[C] proud to [D]call her [G]mine,
Oh we were young and happy then,long,[C]long be[D]fore your [G]time.
[4]
One[G] lovely year was all we had un[C]til the [D]sickness [G]came,
And stole the roses from her cheeks,my [C]tears they [D]fell like [G]rain,
For nine long months she carried you,but [C]in the[D] end she [G]died,
She chose to go so you might live,long [C]long be[D]fore your [G]time,
[5]
So you[G] ask me why I look so sad on [C]this bright [D]summer's[G] day,
And why the tears are in my eyes and I [G]seem so [D]far a[G]way,
Its just you seem a lot like her when your[C] eyes look [D]into [G]mine,
And you smile so much like she did,long,[C]long be[D]fore your[G] time.

Long Before Your Time Lyrics
You ask me why I look so sad on this bright summer's day,
And why the tears are in my eyes and I seem so far away,
Well sit yourself beside me love,and put your hand in mine,
And I'll tell you of someone I loved long long before your time,
[2]
Well im sittin here and thinking of thoes days so long ago,
When I was just a child like you and the girl I used to know,
Through fields of green we laughed and played and sang our merry rhymes,
O we were young and happy then,long ,long before your time.
[3]
Through childhood years our love did bloom,till our hearts were just as one,
And we promised each eternal love in the church below the town,
We settled in this little house I was proud to call her mine,
Oh we were young and happy then,long,long before your time.
[4]
One lovely year was all we had until the sickness came,
And stole the roses from her cheeks,my tears they fell like rain,
For nine long months she cattied you,but in the end she died,
She chose to go so you might live,long long before your time,
[5]
So you ask me why I look so sad on this bright summer's day,
And why the tears are in my eyes and I seem so far away,
Its just you seem a lot like her when your eyes look into mine,
And you smile so much like she did,long,long before your time.
