So Long Ago  Nanci Griffith

[D]My daddy sent me off to [A]Baton Rouge in [G]1969
He said our [D]love was like a [A]forest fire and he'd [G]end it with a mind
So you [D]rode with us to [A]Temple, Texas where [G]I did catch the train
And I [D]remember waving [A]back at you from a [G]silted window pane
And I said [D]fare thee [A]well true love of [G]mine
And I said [D]fare thee [A]well sweet lips of [G]wine
And you said [D]fare thee [A]well my Texas [G]rose
And then you [D]blew a kiss of [A]innocence as the [G]trains began to roll
So long [D]ago [A] [G]
[D]You'd gone off to [A]fight the war when [G]I returned from school
And I [D]traded in my [A]innocence when the [G]springtime came in bloom
And I [D]married for my [A]family; one [G]night I dreamed of you
And you were [D]running from me [A]in the rain down on [G]Congress Avenue
Now I [D]saw you once in a [A]crowded bar and [G]it was Christmas time
I was [D]frightened by the [A]thunder of our [G]hearts in '69
Because I [D]live my life in [A]whispers now and I [G]choose to live alone
So I [D]slipped back to the [A]Avenue and flipped my [G]collar to the cold
TAG: Where did we go
Back long ago[D] [A] [G]
So Long Ago.[D] [A] [G/D]
