How Long - Derrol Sawyer

[Verse 1]
     C               G
How long, will they wait?
            Am
Don't they want to walk through 
       F
that beautiful gate
       C                     G
That Jesus is goin to swing back
          Am         F
on it's hinges, one day
       C                      G         C   F G
that Jesus is going to swing wide, one day

[Verse 2]
           C            G
Are they really having fun?
         Am                       F
or just tryin' to drown out the voice 
                       C             G
of the one, calling softly, "Come to Me,
        Am                  F
You've been to long on the run."
           C             G            C     F G
Calling softly, "Come to Me, I'm the One."

[Chorus]
  F                    G          
There are so many who care, saying,
  C      Bm          Am 
"Yes, I want to be there.
       F                                G 
(But) Life right here right now is so grand."
                C       Bm            Am
They're like children playing in the sand.
                   F                    G
Their carefully fashioned worlds will stand,
           F            G
till the first storms come.

[Verse 3]
         C            G
I have found I have friends,
               Am
and there are many I don't know 
          F
walking down a dead end.
            C                     G
Saying, "Everything looks fine to me."
                Am                       F
While they're asleep to the warning God sends.
            C                      G
Saying, "Everything looks fine to me,
              C       F  G
no crisis impends."

[Verse 4]
       C        G
Was it so, long ago, 
    Am                    F
I thought I could wait because I'd know,
           C                       G
When the winds of strife were let go.
           Am      F
That isn't so, Oh no.
           C                 G
Because people who wait too long,
            C    F  G
just won't go.

[Chorus]
  F                    G          
There are so many who care, saying,
  C      Bm          Am 
"Yes, I want to be there.
       F                                G 
(But) Life right here right now is so grand."
                C       Bm            Am
They're like children playing in the sand.
                   F                    G
Their carefully fashioned worlds will stand,
           F            G
till the first storms come.
