Who knows how long I've loved you,

You know I love you still.

Will I wait a lonely lifetime,

Your song will fill the air.

Sing it loud so I can hear you,
        A       B7      E
Make it easy to be near you.
        A          B7
For the things you do,

Endear you to me.
        B7          E
Oh, you know I will,
I will ————.

Doh, doh-doh, do-do,

Doh, doh—doh, do-do.


1.  My interpretation of Paul’s LIVE version of this song.
2.  “…I was doing a song, I Will, that I had as a melody for quite a long time but I didn't have 
any lyrics to it. I remember sitting around with Donovan, and maybe a couple of other people. 
We were just sitting around one evening after our day of meditation and I played him this one and 
he liked it and we were trying to write some words. We kicked around a few lyrics, something about 
the moon, but they weren't very satisfactory and I thought the melody was better than the words so 
I didn't use them. I kept searching for better words and I wrote my own set in the end; very 
simple words, straight love-song words really. I think they're quite effective. It's still one 
of my favourite melodies that I've written. You just occasionally get lucky with a melody and it 
becomes rather complete and I think this is one of them; quite a complete tune. …”
- Paul McCartney
Many Years From Now, Barry Miles
