Another Time and Place - Dave Van Ronk

    When first I met you years ago
    in another time and place
    a thought came to my mind
    I'd never seen a kinder face
    or warmer laugh and gentler smile
    or eyes so full of light
    I'd be a fool if I didn't fall
    in love with you that night

    We've tramped around the world my dear
    our fortune was to roam
    but each place that I've been with you
    that place has been my home
    if now I wander on alone
    with no place to abide
    I'll be content for I was sent
    those wanderings at your side

    Love that blossoms in the night
    can't stand the test of time
    it ebbs and flows it comes and goes
    no reason reach nor rhyme
    as each day becomes another day
    each year another year
    I'd trade a year in heaven
    for a day with you my dear

    The miles flow on and I am gone
    to a wild and empty land
    where time's like an empty room
    and space an empty hand
    and the things we said and the jokes we made
    are echoes in the waste
    we'll meet again when hills are green
    in another time and place

    [repeat 1st verse]
