How [E] long, baby how [E7] long,
Has that [A] evening train been [A7] gone?
How [E] long, how how [B7] long, baby how [E] long? [E]

Went to the [E] station, didn't see no [E7] train.
Down in my [A] heart, I have an aching [A7] pain.
How [E] long, how how [B7] long, baby how [E] long? [E]

I feel dis[E]gusted, I feel so [E7] bad
Thinking 'bout the [A] good time that I once had [A7] had.
How [E] long, how how [B7] long, baby how [E] long? [E]

I could see the [E] green grass growing on the [E7] hill;
I ain't seen no [A] greenback on a dollar [A7] bill.
How [E] long, how how [B7] long, baby how [E] long? [E]

You're gonna be [E] sorry you feel so [E7] blue.
When you want [A] me, baby, I declare I want, want [A7] you.
How [E] long, how how [B7] long, baby how [E] long? [E]

  Solo on Verse

Don't have no [E] money for to ride the [E7] train.
I would ride the [A] rugs, baby, to be with you a[A7]gain.
How [E] long, how how [B7] long, baby how [E] long? [E]

How [E] long, baby how [E7] long
Must I [A] keep my, my watching [A7] point?
How [E] long, how how [B7] long, baby how [E] long? [E]

About the artist behind How Long Blues Tab:

Eric Patrick Clapton, CBE (born 30 March 1945), is a English blues-rock guitarist, singer, songwriter and composer. He is one of the most successful musicians of the 20th and 21st centuries,[1] garnering an unprecedented three inductions into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame (The Yardbirds, Cream, and solo). Often viewed by critics and fans alike as one of the greatest guitarists of all time[2], Clapton was ranked fourth in Rolling Stone Magazine's list of the "100 Greatest Guitarists of All Time"[3] and #53 on their list of the Immortals: 100 Greatest Artists of All Time.[4]

Although Clapton's musical style has varied throughout his career, it has always remained rooted in the blues. Clapton is credited as an innovator in several phases of his career, which have included blues-rock (with John Mayall & the Bluesbreakers and The Yardbirds) and psychedelic rock (with Cream). Clapton has also achieved great chart success in genres ranging from Delta blues (Me and Mr. Johnson) to pop ("Change the World") and reggae (Bob Marley's "I Shot the Sheriff"). Clapton also achieved fame with Derek and the Dominos through the hit song "Layla".
