Long time gone and it ain't comin' back again

Now me and Delia singin' every Sunday, watchin' the children and the garden grow
                                                                         D
We listen to the radio to hear what's cookin' but the music ain’t got no soul
    D

                        G     D    A 
They got money but they don't have Cash,
         A
They got Junior but they don’t have Hank

I think, I think, I think the rest is a...

G    D    A          G             D            A
Long time gone, no I ain't hit the roof since I don't know when
A    D    G           A            
Long time gone and it ain't comin' back.. 
         G    D    A          G              D            A 
I said a long time gone, no I ain’t honked a horn since I don’t know when
A    D    G           A                    D 
Long time gone and it ain’t comin’ back again

                                         A     
I said a long time, long time, long time gone, oh it’s been a long time

Long time, long time, long time gone
                         D                        
Oh it's been a long time gone
                                A               D
