Thread Name: Lyr Req: The Call (Gene MacLellan)
Subject: RE: Lyr Req: The Call (Gene MacLellan)
Pages of Time
(chords are guesses based on distant memory and lower case is base runs if you'd like that -- I think Gene has some finger wizardry going on in there)


(e f# g#) A                      E
If I could turn back the pages of time
                                           A
If I could bring back the love that once was mine
                           A7
And if the crying that I do
      D               B
Was a pathway back to you
E                                     A
Surely I could turn back the pages of time

--> Bridge

             E
The pages of time have built a wall
A
So wide and so tall
B
I can't break through
   E               
No matter what I do

   (f#) (g#) A                   E
If lov - in' you was a key to the past
                                     A
And happiness was a thing that could last
                         A7       D               B (Bm?)
And if the crying that I do, was a pathway back to you
               E                      A
Surely I could turn back the pages of time

--> Bridge x2



(there may be another verse -- but most of his tunes could be sung in under 2:00 as was the custom of the day for high rotation radio play -- and the thought-density of his lyrics made long ballads moot anyway)
