Long Time Gone

This song is by David Crosby and appears on the album King Biscuit Flower Hour (1996).

It's been a long time comin'
Goin' to be a long time gone

And it appears to be a long
Appears to be a long
Appears to be a long time
Such a long, long time before the dawn, yeah

Turn, turn any corner
Turn and hear (Turn and hear) what your friends and your neighbors might have to say, yeah
Something, something, something's goin' on around here
Surely, surely, surely will not stand the light of day

And it appears to be a long
Appears to be a long, yeah
Appears to be a long time
Such a long, long time before the dawn, yeah, yeah, yeah

Speak out, speak out against the madness, yes, yeah, yeah
All I'm sayin' is speak your mind that is if you still can and you still have the guts to
Don't, no don't, no, try to get yourself elected, no, no
And if you do forsake this child you'd better cut your hair

It appears to be a long, yes it does now
Appears to be a long, yeah, yeah
Appears to be a long such a long, a long (A long, a long)
Such a long, long time before the dawn

It's been a long time comin'
It'll be a long time gone (Gone, gone, gone, gone)

But you know
The darkest hour, yeah
It is always, just before your dawn, yes it is

And it appears to be a long, oh, oh
Appears to be a long, oh, oh, oh
Appears to be a long time
Such a long, long time

And it appears to be a long, yeah
