So Long It’s Been Good To Know You

D                     A
I've sung this song, but I'll sing it again,
D                      A
Of the people I've met and the places I've seen.
D                                         G
Of some of the troubles that bothered my mind
D                                      A
And a lot of good people that I've left behind, saying:
So long, it's been good to know yuh;
A                                 D
So long, it's been good to know yuh;
D                                 G
So long, it's been good to know yuh. 
D                                A
What a long time since I've been home,
And I've gotta be driftin' along. 

The sweethearts they sat in the dark and they sparked. 
They hugged and they kissed in that dusty old dark. 
They sighed and they cried and they hugged and they kissed, 
But instead of marriage they talked like this: Honey,

Well, the churches was jammed and the churches was packed, 
But that dusty old dust storm it blew up so black 
That the preacher could not read a word of his text,
So he folded his specs, took up a collection, (Sayin'...)
