[Verse 1]
Am7             D               Am7                    D
 In the quiet silent seconds I...   I turned off the light switch,
       Cmaj7                Bm7             Dm                 E7
And I...     I came down to meet you in the... half light the moon left,
        Am7             D                   Am7        D
While a... cluster of night jars sang some...   songs out of tune,
Cmaj7              Bm                Dm              E
      A mantle of bright light shone... down from a room!


[Chorus]
F                  Em      Dm          Cmaj7
    "Come down in time!",      I still hear her say,
F            Em         Dm           C
    So clear in my ear,     like it was today,
F                 Ab             C          Am
   'Come down in time' was the message she gave,
F                 Eb             Dm7                 F  C  D
   'Come down in time', and I'll...   meet you half way------!

[Verse 2]
Am7                     D                Am7        D
     Well, I don't know if I should have...  heard her as yet,
      Cmaj7                 Bm7         Dm         E7
But a...    true love, like hers, is a...  a hard love to get,
      Am7              D                      Am7          D
And I...  I've walked most all the way, and I... I ain't heard her call,
       Cmaj7                 Bm              Dm             E
And I...    I'm getting to thinking if she's...  coming at all!


[Chorus]
F                  Em      Dm          Cmaj7
    "Come down in time!",      I still hear her say,
F            Em         Dm           C
    So clear in my ear,     like it was today,
F                 Ab             C          Am
   'Come down in time' was the message she gave,
F                 Eb             Dm7                 F  C  D
   'Come down in time', and I'll...   meet you half way------!

Am7             D                   Am7       D
    There are women and women, and...   some hold you tight,
       Cmaj7                  Bm         Am7                B
While...     some leave you counting the...  stars in the night!

About the artist behind Come Down In Time:

Sir Elton Hercules John CBE[1] [2] (born Reginald Kenneth Dwight on 25 March 1947) is an English pop/rock singer, composer and pianist.

In his four-decade career, John has been one of the dominant forces in rock and popular music, especially during the 1970s. He has sold more than 250 million albums[citation needed] and over one hundred million singles,[3] making him one of the most successful artists of all time. He has more than 50 Top 40 hits including seven consecutive #1 U.S. albums, 59 Top 40 singles, 16 Top 10, 4 #2 hits, and nine #1 hits. He has won five Grammy awards and one Academy Award. His success has had a profound impact on popular music and has contributed to the continued popularity of the piano in rock and roll. In 2004, Rolling Stone ranked him #49 on their list of the 100 greatest artists of all time.[4]

Some of the characteristics of John's musical talent include an ability to quickly craft melodies for the lyrics of songwriting partner Bernie Taupin, his former rich tenor (now baritone) voice, his classical and gospel-influenced piano, the aggressive orchestral arrangements of Paul Buckmaster among others and the flamboyant fashions, outlandishly excessive eye glasses, and on-stage showmanship, especially evident during the 1970s.

John was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 1994. He has been heavily involved in the fight against AIDS since the late 1980s and was knighted in 1998. He entered into a civil partnership with David Furnish on 21 December 2005 and continues to be a champion for the LGBT social movements. On April 9, 2008 Elton John held a benefit concert for the Hillary Clinton Presidential Campaign, and raised $2.5 million.[5]
