This tab is based off the version of the song sung by Jack Sheldon.
The chord progression is simplified, since there's a lot of improvised chords in the original 
and every version is slightly different.

[Verse 1]
Cm
There’s a long goodbye.
G7                       Bb7   G7
And it happens everyday
Cm
when some passerby
Fm7
invites your eye
Bb7
to come her way.

Dm7     
Even as she smiles
Dm7
a quick hello,
Dm7
you’ve let her go.
           Cm
You’ve let the moment fly.

[Chorus 1]
Cm                                      Fm7
Too late you’d turn your head,
      Dm7                        G7       
you’d know you’ve said
Cm
the long goodbye.

[Verse 2]
        G7                     Bb7   G7
Can you recognise the theme –
Cm
on some other street
Fm7
two people meet
Bb7
as in a dream,

Dm7
running for a plane
Dm7
through the rain.
Dm7                     Cm
If the heart is quicker than the eye,
Fm7
they could be lovers
  G7       Cm
Until they die.

[Chorus 2]
Cm
It’s too late to try
Cm     Fm7  
when a missed hello
Dm7         G7   Cm
becomes the long goodbye.
