For all the Arlo's fans,
Here's that old Arlo's song (1974), as I heard it, and transcribed 20
years ago (1978).
Any corrections would be appreciated
I play it with capo on first fret.

Won't Be Long
words and music by Arlo Guthrie
[G]Not so long ago I set out on this [Em]road
With my [C]friends and my com[D]panions by my [G]side
[G]And I think of you wherever I do [Em]go
[Em]I'm a ra[C]mbler, I ain'[D]t hard to sa[G]tisfy.
[C]Won't be long till I am [D]home again with [G]you
[G]Just a f[C]ew more miles to g[D]o
[D]Won't be [G]long till I can [D]get back on my [Em]own
[Em]Won't be [C]long till I can sp[D]end my time with [G]you
[G] [/Em] [/Em] [C] [/D] [G]  
In the airport I'm standing in a line
Search my pockets, check me out and I'm alright
It's not hard but it ain't easy all the time
To be in some other town most every night
Oh, I miss the singing from porch banjo nights
And when friends come by to pass the time away
And when the winds that chill the Bershires in the night
Heading east through Massachusetts toward the bay.
?1974 Howard Beach Music Inc. (ASCAP)
