Before My Time

Song Author Johnny Cash Performer: Johnny Cash Submitted by: Anonymous

[G]I know that hearts were loving
Long [D7]before I was here

And I'm not the first to ever cry
In my [G]bed or in my beer

There were [C]songs before there was radio
Of [G]love that stays and [Em]love that goes
They were [C]writing melancholy tunes
And tearful words that [D7]rhyme
Before my [G]time [D7]before my [G]time


There were songs in old dusty books
Of [D7]love that's always been

Sweet lovers in their glory
Who are [G]now gone with the wind

Old [C]fashion love words spoken then
Keep [G]coming back [Em]around again
[C]Nothings changed except the names
Their love burns just like [D7]mine   
Before my [G]time [D7]before my [G]time

And [C]in the dim of yesterday
[G]I can clearly see
That [C]flesh and blood cried out to someone
[G]As it does in [D7]me   
And there was [G]some old song that said
I [C]love you till I die
Before my [G]time [D7]before my [G]time


But what the old time masters had
Is [D7]what I feel for you

Love is love and doesn't change
In a [G]century or two

If [C]someway they had seen and knew
[G]How it would be for [Em]me and you
They'd [C]wish for love like yours
And they would wish for love like [D7]mine   
Before my [G]time [D7]before my [G]time


I know that hearts were loving
Long before I was here

And I'm not the first to ever cry
In my bed or in my beer

There were songs before there was radio
Of love that stays and love that goes
They were writing melancholy tunes
And tearful words that rhyme
Before my time before my time

There were songs in old dusty books
Of love that's always been

Sweet lovers in their glory
Who are now gone with the wind

Old fashion love words spoken then
Keep coming back around again
Nothings changed except the names
Their love burns just like mine
Before my time before my time

And in the dim of yesterday
I can clearly see
That flesh and blood cried out to someone
As it does in me
And there was some old song that said
I love you till I die
Before my time before my time

But what the old time masters had
Is what I feel for you

Love is love and doesn't change
In a century or two

If someway they had seen and knew
How it would be for me and you
They'd wish for love like yours
And they would wish for love like mine
Before my time before my time
