                This is the first time I post something here, so all comments are
welcome. I know this song only from a Dutch radio-show where all kind
of bands come and play, sort of semi-unplugged, so it's maybe a little
different from the original (which I don't really know). This song
also appears on a CD of this radio-show: 2 Meter Sessies, Vol. 3.
(Radio Records VCD 474724 2, distribution by Sony). On these CD's
(Vol. 5 is out now) are a lot of famous bands, playing
very-good-to-play-yourself-acousticly versions of well- or less
well-known songs. I'm planning to post a few more if it's appreciated,
let me know.

A - A/G# - A/F# - A/E - Dadd2 - E

A                                F#m
Does you mother tell you things?
Long, long when I'm gone?
Who you talking to?
Is she telling you I'm the one?
       Dadd2                 A
It's a grave mistake and I'm wide awake.

A/G# - A/F# - A/E - Dadd2 - E 

Drive-in's rained out
Weatherman wet-fingers the sky
He pokes it out, he pulls it in
He don't know why
It's the same mistake

            A - A/G# - A/F# - A/E       D         E
It's been a lo    -       -     ng time running
            A - A/G# - A/F# - A/E       D         E
It's been a lo    -       -     ng time coming
It's well worth the wait

A - F#m - A - F#m

We don't go anywhere
Just on trips
We haven't seen a thing
We still don't know where it is
It's a safe mistake

It's been a long time running
It's been a long time coming

D                               A
Well, well it's all the same mistake
Dead to rights and wide awake
I'll drop a caribou, I'll tell on you
     D                         F#m  E - D - A
I'll tell on you, I'll tell on you

You've got a boatload of nerve
But I would say you've been told
You work me against my friends
And you'll get left out in the cold
It's the same mistake

It's been a long time running
It's been a long time coming
It's been a long, long, long time running
It's well worth the wait
