"TODAY, NOT TOMORROW" (with chords)
He was (C) planning to be all a mortal should be, To(G)morrow...
No (Dm) one would be kinder or (G) braver than he, To(C)morrow.(C7)
He (F) had a good friend who was troubled & knew
He’d (C) needed a hand, and would welcome one, too, too
On (Dm) him he would call & see (G) what he could do, To(C)morrow.
(G) [Yes, to(C)morrow!]
Each (C) morning he stacked up the letters he'd write, to(G)morrow. [Tomorrow]
And (Dm) thought of the folks he would (G) fill with delight, To(C)morrow. [Yes, tomorrow] (C7)
It's too (F) bad, he agreed, he's so busy today,
And (C) hasn't a minute to stop on his way
More (Dm) time he would have to give (G) others, he'd say, To(C)morrow. (C7)
Don't (F) put off the good you can (C) do today
To (G) ease someone's burden a(C) long life's (C7) way.
'Cuz (F) so many need your sweet (C) love, &, (A7) hey,
They (Dm) need it to(G)day, not to(C)morrow! (A7)Yes, they (Dm) need it to(G)day! (C)
He passed (C) dozens each day that he swore he'd assist, To(G)morrow.....
And i(Dm)magined the scores he would (G) save from distress, To(C)morrow.....(C7)
As he (F) looked on the need, he exclaimed "it's a crime!",
(C) Jotting some notes of their plight in his mind,
(Dm) Slotting them all to be (G) helped in good time, To(C)morrow. (A7)
The (D) greatest of workers this man would have been, To(A)morrow. [Yes, Tomorrow]
The (Em) World would have know him, if (A) he'd ever seen To(D)morrow. [Seen tomorrow] (D7)
But the (G) fact is he died & just faded from view,
And (D) all that he left here when living was through
Was a (Em) mountain of things he in(A)tended to do, To(D)morrow. (C-D7)
So, don't (G) put off the good you can (D) do today
To (A) ease someone's burden a(D)long life's (D7)way.
'Cuz (G)so many need your sweet (D)love, &, (B7)hey,
They (Em) need it to(A)day, not to(D)morrow!(B7)
Yes, they (Em) need it to(A)day, not to(D)morrow! (D7)
To(G)mor(A)row (Bm) never comes,
For (Em) when it ar(A)rives it’s to(D)day. (D7)
Start (G) now (F#) with (Bm) anyone,
And (E) do what you can, don't de(A)lay
Don't (E) dream all your chances a(A)way! (optional: Bb-C-A-G-A-Bb-C-A)
Don't (G) put off the good you can (D) do today
To (A) ease someone's burden a (D) long life's (D7) way.
'Cuz (G) so many need your sweet (D)love, &, (B7) hey,
They (Em) need it to(A)day, not to(D)morrow! (B7)
Yes, they (Em) need it to(A)day, not to(D)morrow! (B7)
Please do (Em) something today, (A) not to(D)morrow! (Bm-Em-A-D)
