[INTRO]
Riff 1  x2   Am | F        |         |

[VERSE 1]
 Am    (sus4)  Am    | C         |
I've been traveling a long time
E  E7       | Am       F    |
To be just a-where you are
Am       (sus4)  | Am   C     |
In dreams I have  seen you
E   E7        | Am   F   (sus2) |
But you are so  very far


[PRE-CHORUS]
   C             |3/4  F     C     |
  How long must I     travel on
E  E7       | Am       F   |
To be just a-where you are?
| C              |3/4  F      C     |
  How long must I      travel on
| E  E7       | Am       F  |       |
  To be just a-where you are?            

[CHORUS]
Riff 2            Riff 3  Riff 2           Riff 3
F  C/E C/D  C     | 3/4 | F  C/E C/D  C   | 3/4 |
I  was your friend,       I  was  a   fool
F  G       Am  | 2/4   F  | E      |       |
I feel for you  don't fall apart

Riff 2            Riff 3  Riff 2           Riff 3
F  C/E C/D  C     | 3/4 | F  C/E C/D  C   | 3/4 |
I see your face lost without trace
F   G     Am | 2/4   F    | E      |       |
I see a   vac-uum an empty space


Am           C       G       | 2/4 |
Mindless child of motherhood
E         E7       Am         |3/4  F       |
You have lost the thing that's      good
Am        C       G          | 2/4 |
Mindless child of motherhood
E          E7       Am        |3/4  F       |         | 
You have lost the thing that's      good

F     | E     |

[VERSE 3]
Am           C  | G        |  
I know that it's  unfair
E   E7       | Am   F      |
To bear a bas-tard son
Am             | C    G    |
But why do you  hide babe
E    E7           | Am      F     |
When we could have shared a love? 


[PRE-CHORUS]
   C             |3/4  F     C     |
  How long must I     travel on
E  E7       | Am       F   |
To be just a-where you are?
| C              |3/4  F      C       |
  How long must I      travel on
| E  E7       | Am       F  |         |
  To be just a-where you are?
