(Long) Gone

Words & Music:

Kenny Wayne Shepherd, Danny Tate & Mark Selby


You can keep whatever you want, baby,

Take whatever you need.

Sweep up the pieces of this broken love

As a token to remember me.



Don't cry, baby, you did nothin' wrong.

Don't ask why this stone keeps rollin'.

It's just goin', goin', goin', long gone.


You can think whatever you want to, baby,

Believe whatever you wanna believe.

Deep in my heart I've loved you.

But my heart's like a tumbleweed.




Well, I never meant to hurt you.

Never wanted to desert you.

But that restless wind starts blowin',

Can't help goin', oh, goin'...
