So Long Its Been Good Chords

(ver. 1)
Guthrie Woody

Woody Guthrie borrowed the medody for this song from "The BAllad
of Billy the Kid", and the chorus is a variant of Huddie (Leadbelly)
 Ledbetter's Goodnight Irene.

     C                        G7
I've sung this song, but I'll sing it again
        C                       G7
Of the people I've met and the places I've seen
   C           C7            F   
Of some of the troubles that bothered my mind
F#dim/C                       G7        C      
And a lot of good people that I've left behind, saying:

So long it's been good to know yuh,
G7                        C
So long it's been good to know yuh,
             F            F#dim
So long it's been good to know yuh,
       C               D7        G7 
What a long time since I've been home....
                             C     (G7-1st verse)
And I've gotta be driftin' along.


F#dim = xx1212

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 ....
