##>From: "Larry" ##By The Dixie Chicks
[D]Daddy sits on the front porch swingin', lookin' out on a [G]vac[D]ant [A]field
It used to be filled with burly tobacco now he knows it never [D]will
My brother found work in Indiana, my sister's a nurse at the [G]old [D]folks
home
  [D]Momma's still cookin' too much for supper and me, I've been a long time
gone
Been a [G]long [D]time [A]gone, no I [G]ain't hoed a [D]row since I [A]don't know when
[A]Long [D]time [G]gone and it [A]ain't comin' back [D]again
Delia plays that old church piano, sittin' out on her daddy's farm
She always thought that we'd be together, Lord, I never meant to do her
harm
Said she could heard me singin' in the choir, me I heard another song
I caught wind and hit the road runnin' and Lord, I've been a long time
gone
Been a long time gone, Lord, I ain't had a prayer since I don't know
when
[A]Long [D]time [G]gone and it [A]ain't comin' back [D]again
Now [C]me, I went to Nashville, tryin' to be the big deal
[D]Playin' down on Broadway, gettin' there the hard way
[C]Livin' from a tip jar, sleepin' in my car
[D]Hockin' my guitar, yeah I'm gonna be a [E]star
Now me and Delia singin' every Sunday, watchin' the children and the
garden grow
We listen to the radio to hear what's cookin' but the music ain't got no
soul
Now they sound tired but they don't sound Haggard
They got money but they don't have Cash,
They got Junior but they don't have Hank, I think, I think, I think the
rest is a...
[G]Long [D]time [A]gone, no I [G]ain't hit the [D]roof since I [A]don't know when
[A]Long [D]time [G]gone and it [A]ain't comin' back..
I said a [G]long [D]time [A]gone, no I [G]ain't honked a [D]horn since I [A]don't know
when
[A]Long [D]time [G]gone and it [A]ain't comin' back aga[D]in
I said a long time, long time, long time [A]gone, oh it's been a long time
[D]Long time, long time, long time [A]gone
                         [D]           [A] [D]Oh it's been a long time gone... Long time, long time, long time gone.
Yeah, yeah
