Long ago, and, oh, so far away
We fell in love with you before the second show.
Your guitar, it sounds so sweet and clear,
but you're not really here.
It's just the radio.
Don't you remember you told me you loved me baby?
You said you'd be coming back this way again baby.
Baby, baby, baby, baby, oh, baby.
We love you, we really do.
Loneliness is such a sad affair, and we can hardly wait to be with you again.
What to say, to make you come again?Come back to us again, and play your snake guitar.
Words and Music: Leon Russell & Bonnie Bramlett (with a few changes of pronouns, and substitution of snake for sad)
