Long Way -- Antje Duvekot CAPO 6; Tuning: EADGAD
Tabbed by Travis (mr_flycstr@yahoo.com)

Verse A:
We bid our friends goodbye, we promised we would write them
We headed north up 95
Into the great unknown we, turned up our stereo and
Felt so reckless and alive

Verse B:
     We didn't know who we would be, we didn't know where we would end up
     When we headed down that road
     A little food and our guitars in the, backseat and that old cello
     The one that would get stolen in a town in Idaho

Chorus:
And it's a long way, to Michigan and back, and it's a long way
Yes it's a long way, the clouds upon our backs and it's a
Long, long, long, long way (to Intro)

And I have never seen, reflections of the cleanest of
Blue as the Minnesota lakes
Those were the longest nights of, wood smoke & northern lights as
We talked until the morning came
     The light of glowing embers, as sweet as I remember
     Among the rustling of the trees
     Legend of the harvest moon and, sweet ballad of the loon
     I felt as ancient as, as I was meant to be

And it's a long way, to Washington and back, and it's a long way
Yes it's a long way, the clouds upon our backs and it's a
Long, long, long, long way

Instrumental (repeat Riff 2, with second ending from Chorus, then intro)

I called you from a pay phone, in windy cold Missoula
And then from Midland in the rain
A place as proud and sad as, the South Dakota Badlands,
They touched me more than I could explain
     The dirt-poor reservation, where the Avala Nation
     Tries to hang on to its ways
     Feather and peyote pipe and a, six pack of Miller Lite
     Sits on the dashboard of, a beat up Chevrolet

And it's a long way, to Tennessee and back, and it's a long way
Yes it's a long way... on... the... worn-out heels of Kerouac and it's a
Long, long, long, long way

Well, out in California, we touched the other ocean
And I still have that jar of sand
In the Arizona desert, the sky goes on forever
You've never seen a thing as grand
     And north Montana was cold, she keeps her secrets frozen
     Under glaciers way up north
     And people have got lost up there in the, home of the grizzly bear
     And you can ask the mountain, but the mountain doesn't care

And it's a long way, to Delaware and back, and it's a long way
Yes it's a long way..., the clouds upon our backs and it's a
Long, long, long, long way
Yes it's a long way, on the worn-out heels of Kerouac and it's a
Long, long, long, long way...
