Woody Guthrie - So Long It's Been Good To Know You
Fingerpick alternating bass strings
Verse 1
C                               F        G7  
I've sung this song , but I'll sing it again
C                               F          G7
Of the people I've met and the places I've seen
C              C7            F           F#dim7
Of some of the troubles that bothered my mind
      C                       G7
And a lot of good people that I've left behind, saying:

So long, it's been good to know you
So long, it's been good to know you
C  C7         F            F#dim7
So long, it's been good to know you
       C     Am        G7
What a long time since I've been home
And I've got to be drifting along

Verse 2
C                               F             G7
The sweethearts they sat in the dark and they sparked
     C                              F          G7
They hugged and they kissed in that dusty old dark
     C               C7             F               F#dim7
They sighed and they cried and they hugged and they kissed
     C                       G7
But instead of marriage they talked like this:


Verse 3
C                         F              G7
I went to your family and asked them for you
C                           F                G7
They all said "Take her, oh take her, please do!
    C             C7           F               F#dim7
She can't cook or sew and she won't scrub your floor"
     C                  G7
So I put on my hat and tip-toed out the door, saying:


Verse 4
C                               F       G7
I walked down the street to the grocery store
        C                       F             G7
It was crowded with people both rich and both poor
C           C7          F          F#dim7
I asked the man how his butter was sold
         C                       G7
He said "One pound of butter for two pounds of gold" so I said:


Verse 5
   C                     F              G7
My telephone rang and it jumped off the wall
C                       F         G7
That was the preacher a making a call
C               C7        F       F#dim7
He said "We're waiting to tie the knot
C                          G7
You're getting married, believe it or not"


Verse 6
    C                         F             G7
The church it was jammed, the church it was packed
    C                         F            G7
The pews were so crowded from front to the back
  C                C7        F           F#dim7
A thousand friends waited to kiss my new bride
    C                    G7
But I was so anxious, I rushed her outside, told them:
