Just In Time
Words & Music by Chris de Burgh    
 
Intro: C#m - A - F#m
 
C#m               A
Just in time I heard the cry
        H                                               C#m
And looking up I saw the snowbirds wheeling in the sky;
                                  A
They said "we are the last ones left",
        H                                                 C #m
And so I brought them in, I gave them comfort gave them rest,
           A - H                     C#m
Just in time, to live another day,
           A - H                               C#m
Just in time, oh they'll live another day;
Just in time I read the Book,
Such a revelation, we must give back what we took,
Or the earth will roar like a wounded beast,
The mountains will come crashing from the valleys to the sea,
           A - H                               C#m
Just in time, oh don't throw it all away,
          A - H                          C#m - A - F#m  - G#
Just in time, don't throw it all away...
 
        C#m                              A
"Who will save this world of mine,
F#m                  #G      C#m
Will you save it just in time?"
 
Just in time, I saw the dawn,
Watched the sun arising on a field of golden corn,
And through the mist, a million sang,
Friends of the Earth, calling out to every man,
           A - H                               C#m
Just in time, oh don't throw it all away, no no no
           A - H                             C#m - A - F#m - C#
Just in time, oh we'll live another day....
        C#m
Ooh, how can I tell you how close we have come,
            A
That the end of our world has already begun,
              F#m
There are so many things we will not see again,
          G#
Every day there's another one dying away...
C#m                     A
Calling for help, Help from your hand,
F#m                          G#
Hand coming down, down to the world;
C#m                  A
World it is time, time for us all,
      F#m
And all that is life,
        G#                                                     C#m
To be living together before everything slips away... (fade out)
