Love Never Runs On Time chords

Paul Kelly

Key: 

D G D G D A D G D I pulled out of the suburbs by sunset. G D A Rain was falling, looked like it would for a while. D G D I had a radio, six-pack and some cigarettes. G D A The radio died after the first hundred miles. G D I sang all the way to the border G A And guess who starred in every rhyme. D G A Ah you know and I know that love never runs on time. D G D G D A D G D I followed that old river 'til the morning. G D A I stopped, I don't remember the name of the town. D G D But the colour of the coffee was a warning, G D A It was the colour of the river but not nearly as brown. G D The waitress poured me another, G A I guess she was feeling kind (mind reading kind). D G A D You know and I know that love never runs on time. Bm G You're lost in the traffic. A D I?ve been asking around, but you haven't been seen. Bm G I never thought we were perfect. A Oh but darling - what we could have been! (instrumental) D G D G D A D G D G D A D G D The rain came and went all the next day. G D A I pulled over sometime for a sleep on the side. D G D Then I gunned it back out on the highway, G D A Hit a big pot-hole and the radio came alive. G D I never heard a love song yet G A That I could call your and mine. D G A D 'Cause you know and I know that love never runs on time. (instrumental) G D I never heard a love song yet G A That I could call your and mine. D G A D 'Cause you know and I know that love never runs on time. NB 1. The changes may not always be in the correct format. Our email program is a pretty poor wordprocessor to say the least. 2. When you listen to the 'Wanted Man' version of this song there are probably 2 guitars at work. One plays the cords above for the rhythm, the other play the same cords but mixes things up a bit. In particular you can hear the e string opened during the D chord at the end of the first movement in the intro and then in subsequent places in the song. You need to play the D chord something as follows: E---2---0---2-2-2-| B---3---3---3-3-3-| G---2---2---2-2-2| D---0---0-|-0-0-0 A------------------ E-----------------| to get the full sound. I admit that this is not completely accurate but I dont have my guitar here at work. The idea however is correct and to verify this listen in particular just as the song goes into ...You're lost in the traffic... It's easiest to pick here at this point but if you listen closely it's repeated most of the way though the song. This style of play is quite typical of PK as he as really slick (but certainly simple and by no means novel) ways of moving though a chord change - most of which I certainly cannot work out. Any comments would, of course be welcomed! Have fun.
