                   Come Down In Time      - Taupin/John

   I heard this song performed by Al Kooper's band in the late 70's.
I picked up the chords from listening it on the radio.  I may not be
the actual chords, but represent an amazing simulation!
   The fret and root string are in parenthesis after the chord itself, to
give you an idea of how I play it.


  Am7 (V-6)      Bm7(VII-6)
   In the quiet, silent seconds I

  Am7 (V-6)         Bm7(VII-6)
   I turned off the light switch and I

  Cmaj7 (VIII-6)  Bm7(VII-6)
   I came down to meet you

  Dm7 (V-5)              E7sus4 E7 (II-4)
   in the half-light the moon   left while a

  Am7 (V-6)      Bm7(VII-6)
   cluster of night jars sang some

  Am7 (V-6) Bm7(VII-6)
   songs    out of tune.

  Cmaj7 (VIII-6)  Bm7(VII-6)
   A mantel of bright light shone

  Dm7 (V-5)           E7sus4 E7 (II-4)
   down from her (a?) room


Chorus:

  Fmaj7 (VIII-5) Em7 (VII-5) Dm7 (V-5) Cmaj7 (VIII-6)
   Come down in  time,        I still  hear her say

  Fmaj7 (VIII-5) Em7 (VII-5) Dm7 (V-5) Cmaj7 (VIII-6)
   So clear      in my ear,   like it  was today.

  Fmaj7 (VIII-5)  Ab (VIII-6)  Cmaj(VIII-6) Bm7 (VII-6) Am7 (V-6) Gm7 (III-6)
   Come down in   time was the message        she       gave

  Fmaj7 (III-4) Ebmaj7(I-4)   Dm7 (open)    F (I-6) C/G  D
   Come down in time and I'll meet you half way.


   Well, I don't know if I should have

   heard her as yet but a

   a true love like ours is a
   a hard love to get and I

   I've walked most all the way and I

   I ain't heard her call and I

   I'm getting to thinking if she's

   coming at all.


Chorus

(In Al Kooper's version, they improvise over an up-tempo Am7 and Bm7 here)


  Am7 (V-6)  Bm7(VII-6)
   There are women and women and

  Am7 (V-6)  Bm7(VII-6)
   some      hold you tight while

  Cmaj7 (VIII-6)  Bm7(VII-6)
   some leave you counting the

  Em7 (VII-5)   Bm7(VII-6)           F  C/G  D
   stars in the night

LYRICS:

In the quiet silent seconds I
turned off the light switch and I
came down to meet you in the
half light the moon left while a
cluster of night jars sang some
songs out of tune and a
mantle of bright light shone
down from a room

come down in time
i still hear her say
so clear in my ears
like it was today.
come down in time
was the message she gave
come down in time
and i'll meet you halfway.

Well i don't know if i should have
heard her as yet but a
true love like hers is a
hard love to get and I
Walked most all the way and I
ain't heard her call and I'm
getting to thinking is she
coming at all

come down in time
i still hear her say
so clear in my ears
like it was today.
come down in time
was the message she gave
come down in time
and i'll meet you halfway.

There are women and women and
some hold you tight while
some leave you counting the
stars in the night.
