Kingston Trio – Long Time Blues lyrics

Mason Williams

Sittin' by the window, waitin' for the dawn. Waitin' for a girl a-long time gone.
Long time gone is a lonesome sound. Long time blues is a hard way done.

Walkin' by the river. Walkin' in the rain. Down by the depot waitin' for the train.
Long time gone is the evening train. Long time blues is an achin' pain. Long time blues is an achin' pain.

Listen to the sparrow singin' their song. Listen for a voice a long time gone.
Long time gone is a silent song. Long time blues keep a-comin' on. (Repeat first verse)

Long time blues is a hard way down.
