It will take a long time to forget you, my dear
A long, long time I'll regret you're not here
A long time remembering when I had you so near
It will take a long time to forget.

There's a lot of people out a-walkin' tonight
Thinkin' about arms that held 'em so tight
Memories keep a-comin' in sight
Take a long, long time to forget.

It will take a long time to forget you, my dear
A long, long time I'll regret you're not here
A long time remembering when I had you so near
It will take a long time to forget.

--- Instrumental ---

I know a young fellow that lived down the street
He had a good woman everything was complete
He was understandin' yes, she was so sweet
It took a long, long time to forget.

It takes a long, long time to forget you, my dear
A long, long time I'll regret you're not here
A long time remembering when I had you so near
It will take a long time to forget.

--- Instrumental ---

Now there's an old sayin' you're as old as you feel
But time waits for no one and it never will
I keep a-wantin' and lovin' you still
It takes a long, long time to forget.

It take a long, long time to forget you, my dear
A long, long time I'll regret you're not here
A long time remembering when I had you so near
It will take a long time to forget.

It will take a long time to forget.
It will take a long time to forget...
