Woody Guthrie - So Long, It's Been Good To Know You (World War II version) C G I got the news that the war had begun C G It was straight for the Army Hall that I run C F And all of the people in my home town G G7 Was a running up and a running down Singing CHORUS: C So long, it's been good to know you G C So long, it's been good to know you C F So long, it's been good to know you C G7 There's a mighty big war that's got to be won C And we'll get back together again. The rest of the song follows this basic I-IV-V chord progression. Enjoy! The crowd was packed by the railroad track People was yelling and patting my back And while the engineer rung his bell I hugged all the mothers and kissed all the gals, Singing: CHORUS I got to the camp and I learnt how to fight Fascists in daytime, mosquitoes at night I got my orders to cross o'er the sea So I waved "goodbye" to the girls I could see, Singing: CHORUS I got on a boat and I started to float My old pack-sack and my big wool coat With ten thousand men we rode the foam And sung this song to the people back home: CHORUS I landed somewhere on a fighting shore With ten million soldiers and ten million more And while we were chasing that Super Race We sung this song in the chase. It was: CHORUS So it won't be long till the fascists are gone And all of their likes are finished and done We'll throw the clods of dirt in their face And walk away from that lonesome place Singing: CHORUS
