1. You've been too gone, for too long,

          D

    it's too late to come back now.

G                                                C                      A

     It's been so long since you walked out my door,

                       D                                     G

    now you're just an old song nobody sings anymore.

2. I gotta a new love and she's the true love,

              D                                           E

    but, darlin', how could you have known ?

                           A                  D

    You've been too gone, for too long,

3. You came a long way, goin' the wrong way,

              D

    don't even set your suitcase down.

     You wanted to roam, now you're paying the bills,

                     D                                    G

    you're an old rollin' stone who ran over the hills.
