Time it was and what a time it was it was
A time of innocence, a time of confidences.

Long ago it must be, I have a photograph.
Preserve your memories, they're all that's left you...

The Tab file here is my own work and represents my interpretation of the song. Tab files with reference to any artist are not meant to be actual transcriptions of copyrighted material. All rights belong to the copyright holders.

Note: I have learned many songs that I do not think I could have learned without the help of Tab. It seems that breaking the songs down into their various parts (intro, verse, chorus, bridge etc.) and writing the tab is part of my process of learning the songs and helps me remember them better.
