Why You Been Gone So Long?
Written by Mickey Newbury



Chords


Song

1.

Every time it rains, lord, I run to my window,
All I do is just hang my head and mourn,
Listen to that thunder roar,
Can't you hear that lonesome wind moan?
Tell me baby now why you been gone so long?

chorus:

Tell me baby now why you been gone so long,
You been gone so long now?
Tell me baby now why you been gone so long?
I wake to scratchin' at my door lord, lord,
Can't you hear that lonesome wind blow,
Tell me baby now why you been gone so long?

2.

Somebody said they thought they saw you rollin'down in Reno,
With a big ol' man from San Antone,
They tell me I'm a fool to pine for you,
But what do they know?
Tell me baby now why you been gone so long?

3.

Ain't nothin' I can do, so I think I’ll just get stoned,
And let the past paint pictures in my head,
I’ll kill a fifth of "Thunderbird",
And try to write a sad sad song,
Tell me baby now why you been gone so long?
