So Long


Print

Standard tuning Capo: 2 G C G Take the last of these roses, hang them small and pretty on the vine C G Em D Tear them by the roots from the walls where they climbed for all time G C G Take the last of my money, search the corners of my pockets for the change C G Em D Take my best, take my worst, take the blessings, take the curse, take my name C D Em G Let the stars in the sky fall by and by to the sea C D Em G Let the water rise up, let the sun fall down on me C D Em Cause you can only stand up for so long, stand up for so long C G D So long then you're gone, so long Everything I have I've borrowed, I've worn this dress like my own Shined my shoes every Sunday as a child, and now I'm grown So take the rings my fingers, take from my neck a silver chain Take my future, take my past, and that sweet day that's my last Take my pain, take my pain C D Em C G G7 Let the stars in the sky fall by and by to the sea C D Em C G Let the water rise up, let the sun fall down on me C D Em Cause you can only stand up for so long, stand up for so long C G D So long then you're gone, so long Take the last of these pictures, take the nails from all the walls and all the frames Take these memories from my mind, flickering like candle flames
