How [E] long, baby how [E7] long,
Has that [A] evening train been [A7] gone?
How [E] long, how how [B7] long, baby how [E] long? [E]

Went to the [E] station, didn't see no [E7] train.
Down in my [A] heart, I have an aching [A7] pain.
How [E] long, how how [B7] long, baby how [E] long? [E]

I feel dis[E]gusted, I feel so [E7] bad
Thinking 'bout the [A] good time that I once had [A7] had.
How [E] long, how how [B7] long, baby how [E] long? [E]

I could see the [E] green grass growing on the [E7] hill;
I ain't seen no [A] greenback on a dollar [A7] bill.
How [E] long, how how [B7] long, baby how [E] long? [E]

You're gonna be [E] sorry you feel so [E7] blue.
When you want [A] me, baby, I declare I want, want [A7] you.
How [E] long, how how [B7] long, baby how [E] long? [E]

  Solo on Verse

Don't have no [E] money for to ride the [E7] train.
I would ride the [A] rugs, baby, to be with you a[A7]gain.
How [E] long, how how [B7] long, baby how [E] long? [E]

How [E] long, baby how [E7] long
Must I [A] keep my, my watching [A7] point?
How [E] long, how how [B7] long, baby how [E] long? [E]
