C       D       G  D/F# Em

C       D       G
           

VERSE
              C                     D
There ain't a thing in the world to take me back
       G           D/F#      Em
Like a dark-haired girl in a Cadillac
    C                D             G
On main street of an old forgotten town
    C                   D
The sun light shines in fine white lines
   G                D/F#      Em             C
On weathered stores with open signs
            D                   G
They may as well just close 'em down.


CHORUS
        C           G     D        G
And you look like 1968 or was it '69
       C                  G
When I heard you caught a bullet
       D
Well I guess you're doing fine
        C            G
And you speak of revolution
           D                 G
Like it's some place that you've been
                   C         G
Well you've been a long time gone
             D
Good too see you my old friend.


BREAK
C       D        G   D/F#  Em


VERSE
       C            D
Oh now that sign is gone away
    G      D/F#     Em
Replaced instead by silver age 
    C                 D         G
and moonlight falling on the avenue
         C              D
Oh and I could sleep if you would drive
  G          D/F#    Em
I just can't keep my mind alive
    C                  D              G
And you've got nothing better else to do


CHORUS 2
          C                G
And we've all been looking for you
       D             G
Like a hobo you walk in
             C               G
Well how the mighty all have fallen
        D
How the holy all have sinned
            C             G
Is that the clattering of sabers
       D              G
Or the cool September winds
                   C         G
Well you've been a long time gone
        D
Good to see you my old friend.


BREAK
C       D        G   D/F#  Em


VERSE
            C                D
And there's just two times a day like this
    G         D/F#    Em
You find this kind of blissfulness
    C               D            G
The sun it sets and rises in the morn
          C               D
And we're shakin hands, I rub my eyes
G       D/F#   Em
Free up all my alibis
       C                 D         G
Just a blinking like the day I was born


CHORUS
        C           G     D        G
And you look like 1968 or was it '69
       C                  G
When I heard you caught a bullet
       D
Well I guess you're doing fine
        C            G
And you speak of revolution
           D                 G
Like it's some place that you've been
                   C         G
Well you've been a long time gone
             D
Good too see you my old friend.


OUTRO
             C                      G              D      G
And when the rounds were fired that April you were on the balcony
         C                   G                 D
When ten thousand tear drops hit the ground in Memphis, Tennessee
           C              G            D                G
You were a prideful rebel yell among a million marching men.
                  C         G
And you've been a long time gone
        D              G
Good to see you my old friend
                   C         G
Well you've been a long time gone
        D              G
Good to see you my old friend.
