More songs by Neil Young

This file is part of a collection that (moreso than the rest of the site) are not meant to be detailed or accurate transcriptions of the original recordings. They're just some simple chord charts that I made for my own use, some of them my own arrangements.

From his 1978 album Comes a Time
Written by Neil Young
Transcribed by T-rev
Harmonica is G major diatonic

  G         Bm        D         Am   C

    G           Bm
    Comes a time   when you're driftin'
  D                       Am         C
    Comes a time when you settle down
    Comes a light, feelin's liftin'
    Lift that baby right up off the ground

G   F         C          G
Oh, this old world keeps spinning 'round
       F           C           G
It's a wonder tall trees ain't layin' down
              Dm9   G/D
There comes a time

    You and I, we were captured
    We took our souls and we flew away
    We were right, we were giving
    That's how we kept what we gave away
