VERSE 1
F
You can take it all
C7sus4
The gifts you gave
                              C
Even rip the pictures off the wall
                                         F
They're yours now, cause I know you need them

F
The one thing that I wanted
C7sus4
Was just to take good care of you
C                   F
A job I'm underqualified to do
F
But you keep asking me
C7sus4
How long will it be?
C                             F
And how long, how long has it been?

CHORUS
F        C7sus4
How long, how long
C                       F
How long until we meet again?
F        C7sus4
How long, how long,
C                         F
How long until I see you again?

VERSE 2 - Use RIFF 1 to lead into second verse.
F
So you're selling all your clothes
C7sus4                                            C
Your records and anything of value that you might own
                         F
To help you buy a ticket out of here
F
The one thing that I wanted 
C7sus4                        C
Was just to take good care of you
                    F
A job I'm underqualified to do
F
But you keep asking me
C7sus4
How long will it be?
C                             F
And how long, how long has it been?

C                               F
How long until we, til we meet again?
F        C7sus4
How long, how long
C                                F
How long until I, til I see you again?

Tell me what's the matter

And I can't explain

This won't go on forever
     
I'll see you again
   A#           Am        Gm              C
As long as I remember the way it all started

The way it all

ENDING
F
How long
Gm
Oh, how long
C                                 F
How long until we, until we meet again?

Oh, how long
