Long Time Coming - Bruce Springsteen



capo 1st fret

A - Asus2 - A - Asus2

A                                     Asus2
Out where the creek turns shallow and sandy

A                                    Asus2
And the moon comes skimmin' away the stars

A                                       Asus2
When mesquite comes rushin' over the hilltops

A                   D
Straight into my arms

A                   D
Straight into my arms


A                                         Asus2
Well I'm ridin' hard carryin' a cache of Rose's

A                     Asus2
And a fresh map that I made

A                                                Asus2
Tonight I'm gonna give birth naked and bury my old
soul

A                     D
And dance on it's grave

A                     D
And dance on it's grave


             E          A           D
It's been a long time comin', my dear

             E         A                     D
It's been a long time comin', but now it's here

D               A
And now it's here


A                              Asus2
Well my daddy he was just a stranger

A                   Asus2
Lived in a hotel downtown

A                                    Asus2
Well when I was a kid he was just somebody

A                     D
Somebody I'd see around

A                     D
Somebody I'd see around

A                                     Asus2
Well now down below and pullin' on my shirt

A                           Asus2
Yeah I've got some kids of my own

A                                             Asus2
Well if I had one wish for you in this god forsaken
world kid

A                                        D
It'd be that your mistakes will be your own

A                            D
That your sins will be your own


              E       A           D
It's been a long time comin', my dear

             E         A                      D
It's been a long time comin', but now it's here

D               A
And now it's here



BRIDGE: G - D - G - D - E


A                                Asus2
Well out 'neath the arms of Cassiopeia

A                         Asus2
Where the sword of Orion sweeps

A                                                
Asus2
Well it's me and you Rosie cracklin' like crossed
wires

A                       D
You breathin' in your sleep

A                       D
You breathin' in your sleep


A                                             Asus2
Well there's just a spark of a campfire left burnin'

A                           Asus2
Two kids in a sleeping bag beside

A                                             Asus2
I reach beneath your shirt put my hands across your
belly and feel

A                    Asus2
Another one kickin' inside

A                                Asus2
And I ain't gonna fuck it up this time

             E         A          D
It's been a long time comin', my dear

             E         A                    D
It's been a long time comin', but now it's here

             E         A          D
It's been a long time comin', my dear

             E         A                    D
It's been a long time comin', but now it's here
And now it's here

E - A - D
