Long Time Coming  Bruce Springsteen







[Bb]Out where the cr[Bb9]eek [Bb]turns shallow and sandy[Bb9]    [Bb]
[Bb]And the moon comes s[Bb9]kimm[Bb]in' away the star[Bb9]s   [Bb]
[Bb]The wind in the mesquite c[Bb9]omes [Bb]rushin' over the hill[Bb9]tops[Bb]
[Bb]Straight into my a[Eb]rms
Straight into my ar[Bb]ms [Bb9]     [Bb]
[Bb]I'm riding hard [Bb9]carr[Bb]yin' a catch of ro[Bb9]ses [Bb]
[Bb]And a fr[Bb9]esh [Bb]map that I [Bb9]made[Bb]
[Bb]Tonight I'm go[Bb9]nna [Bb]get birth naked an[Bb9]d bu[Bb]ry my old soul
[Bb]And dance on its grav[Eb]e
And dance on its gra[Bb]ve  [Bb9]    [Bb]
It's been a l[F]ong time [Bb]comin', my dear[Eb]
It's been a l[F]ong time [Bb]comin' but now it's [Eb]here
now it's h[Bb]ere

[Bb]Well my daddy he[Bb9] was[Bb] just a stran[Bb9]ger [Bb]
[Bb]Lived in [Bb9]a ho[Bb]tel downt[Bb9]own [Bb]
[Bb]When I was a kid[Bb9] he [Bb]was just somebody [Bb9]    [Bb]
[Bb]Somebody I'd see arou[Eb]nd
Somebody I'd see arou[Bb]nd  [Bb9]     [Bb]

[Bb]Now down below a[Bb9]nd p[Bb]ullin' on my s[Bb9]hirt[Bb]
[Bb]I got so[Bb9]me k[Bb]ids of my ow[Bb9]n   [Bb]
[Bb]Well if I had one w[Bb9]ish [Bb]in this god forsak[Bb9]en w[Bb]orld, kids
[Bb]It'd be that your mistakes would be yo[Eb]ur own

Yea your sins would be your o[Bb]wn   [Bb9]     [Bb]
It's been a lo[F]ng time com[Bb]in', my dear[Eb]
It's been a lo[F]ng time com[Bb]in' but now [Eb]it's here
now it’s [Bb]here


[G#]     [D#]      [G#]      [D#]      [F]              

[Bb]Out 'neath t[Bb9]he a[Bb]rms of Cassiop[Bb9]eia [Bb]
[Bb]Where the sword [Bb9]of O[Bb]rion sweeps       [Bb9]    [Bb]
[Bb]It's me and you,[Bb9] Ros[Bb]ie, cracklin' like[Bb9] cro[Bb]ssed wires
[Bb]And you breathin' in your s[Eb]leep
You breathin' in your [Bb]sle[Bb9]ep   [Bb]

[Bb]Well there's jus[Bb9]t a [Bb]spark of campfire [Bb9]burn[Bb]ing
[Bb]Two kids in[Bb9] a s[Bb]leeping bag besi[Bb9]de  [Bb]
[Bb]I Reach 'neath y[Bb9]our [Bb]shirt, lay my hand[Bb9]s ac[Bb]ross your belly

[Bb]And feel another one kickin' [Eb]inside
I ain't gonna fuck it up this [Bb]time

It's been a [F]long time [Bb]comin', my d[Eb]ear
It's been a [F]long time [Bb]comin' but now it'[Eb]s here
It's been a [F]long time [Bb]comin', my dea[Eb]r
It's been a [F]long time [Bb]comin' but now it'[Eb]s here

(Fade out)
