alex s Lyr Req: Been on the Road So Long (Alex Campbell) (15) Lyr Add: BEEN ON THE ROAD SO LONG (Alex Campbell) 19 Jan 13

I went to see him in Chichester and he sang this song, which he wrote.

I've been on the road, so long
Been tired and cold, so long
I've been to the south where the winds they are warm
Travelling the road of no return, so long

I've seen what was war, so long
The ruins and the scars, so long
The mansions of mud, the wounds and the blood
Seen the dying of all that was good, so long.

Seen the world in a shroud, so long
A mushrooming cloud, so long
And the lies and the greed of the leaders of men
Those cheats who would take us to war again, so long.

Yet hope is in me, so long
For it's love that I see, so long
The courage and strength of a young man's smile
The faith that is in a little child, so long

Main chords were C and Fmaj7
