C     Am         F             G             C
   Oh,  my love, my darling, I've hungered for your touch
     Am           G
   a long, lonely time
       C     Am        F          G           C
   And time goes by so slowly and time can do so  much
   Am            G
   Are you still miiiiiiiiiiiine
   C                 G    Am     Em
   I need your love,      I nee--eed your love
       F               G            C    C7
   God speed your love tooooo-ooooo me

F             G           F           Eb
Lonely rivers flow to the sea, to the sea
F           G           C
To the open arms of the sea
F             G              F            Eb
Lonely rivers sigh, wait for me, wait for me
F              G          C
I'll be coming home, wait for me
   C      Am       F          G                    C
   Oh, my love, my darling, I hunger, hunger!, for your love
   Am               G
   For love. Lonely time.
       C    Am          F           G           C
   And time goes by, so slowly, and time can do so much,
       Am        G
   Are you still mine?
     C         G     Am   Em
   I need your love, I, I need your love.
       F               G     C   Am    F  Fm   C
   God speed your love to    me

    brian moon marry me. your last name is beautiful

  6. Brian you pick through the chords. Pick G string down to the A string and back up again. MaKe sure each string is picked or plucked and sounds bright and clear and rings out.. Arpeggio’s are difficult to do if you are the singer ecause the picking needs to be a constant. In singing this song it requires to singer to emote a lot of feeling and near the end the singer has to be dynamic and hit some high notes.


    What key is this?

  8. I have see a YouTube version of this song played on a uke (concert)
    I have a Baritone & I would like to know which four (4) chords & which strings to pluck in order repeatedly to obtain the same/similar sound, can you help please.


    Amazing song and easy to play on the uke.
