How Have You Been-By John Sebastian

D     		C	    G         D
How have you been my darling children
	          C	G	D
While I have been away in the west
		    C		G	   D
Thought you are strangers I feel as I know you
	G
by the way that you treat me and offer to feed me
			   D		Em	A7
and eagerly ask if Iíll stay for a rest


(D)Now sit yourself (C)down in A (G)pile here 
me
I wish I had (C)presents for (G)each of your(D) smiles
But I have been (C)traveling with (G)not much to(D) carry
Just a (G)broken guitar case with tape on the side a bag and a (D)few signs to help me 
rides(Em7)    (A7)

(D)But here are the(C) beads from the(G) throat of a(D) princess
who reigned in the(C) years round two(G) hundred B(D)C
Divide them and (C)wear them and (G)make sure to (D)share them
cause I(G) want you to have them in hopes that youíll be as lovely as the lady (D)who 
them to me(Em7)   (A7)

(D)And here is A (C)strange Euro(G)pean guitar (D)string
I found on the (C)floor of a (G)club in Marse(D)illes
Itís fat for the (C)third string and (G)skinny for the (D)fourth string
but I (G)kept in hopes that id use it someday it funny how people just (D)do things that way(Em7)
(A7)

(D)And here is A (C)turtle from the (G)Long Island Express(D)way
He says that his (C)home has been (G)covered with (D)tar
so I gave him a (C)ride on the (G)back of my (D)suitcase
and he (G)says that heíd like to stay here in your yard At long last his (D)life wonít 
quite so hard (Em7)	(A7)

(D)How have you (C)been my (G)darling (D)children
While I have (C)been A(G)way in the(D) west
Thought you are (C)strangers I (G)feel  as I (D)know you
 by the(G) way that you treat me and offer to feed me and eagerly ask if Iíll (D)stay 
a rest(Em7)	(A7)
