THE LONGEST TIME -Billy Joel

C G C F G7 C G C F G7 .

..

Oh, oh oh oh For the longest time. oh oh oh. For the longest...

.C F C D7 G

 

If you said goodbye to me tonight. There would still be music left to write.

E7 Am G7 C C7

What else could I do? I'm so inspired by you.

F Dm G C

That hasn't happened for the longest time.

C F C D7

G

Once I thought my innocence was gone. Now I know that happiness goes on.

E7 Am G7 C C7

That's where you found me, when you put your arms around me.

F Dm G C

.I haven't been there for the longest time.

 

C G C F G7 C G C F G7

Oh! oh oh oh For the longest time. Oh! oh oh. For the longest..

C F C D7

G

I'm that voice you're hearing in the hall. And the greatest miracle of all,

E7 Am G7 C C7

. is how I need you. And how you needed me too.

F Dm G C

That hasn't happened for the longest time.

G Am B7 C

 

Maybe this won't last very long, but you feel so right, and I could be wrong.

Em Am

Maybe I've been hoping too hard,

. D D7 G G7

but I've gone this far and it's more than I hoped for

C F C D7 G

 

Who knows how much further we'll go on. Maybe I'll be sorry when you're gone.

E7 Am G7 C C7

. I'll take my chances, I forgot how nice romance is.

F Dm G C

.I haven't been there for the longest time.

G Am B7 C

 

I had second thoughts at the start. I said to myself hold on to your heart.

.Em Am

.Now I know the woman that you are.

. D D7 G G7

You're wonderful so far and it's more than I hoped for.

C F C D7 G

 

I don't care what consequence it brings. I have been a fool for lesser things.

E7 Am G7 C C7

. I want you so bad, I think you ought to know that

F Dm G C

I intend to hold you for the longest time.

C G C F G7 C ||: G C F G7 C :||

Oh, oh, oh, oh. For the longest time. Oh oh oh For the longest.time.

. (repeat)
