How long[Fm] do I have to [Eb]wait for you honey
 
Before a [Fm]girl like me can move [Bb]on
Ooh baby tell me how [Fm]long 
Do I have to [Eb]wait for you honey 
Before [Fm]I can say that you’re [Bb]gone

Every hour[Fm] seems like a [Eb]day
And every [Fm]day is like a [Eb]year
And every [Fm]week is an e[Eb]ternity
Well I get [Fm]lonely baby when you’re not here[Bb]

Ooh baby tell me how long 
Do I have to wait for you honey 
Before a girl like me can move on
Ooh baby tell me how long 
Do I have to wait for you honey 
Before I can say that you’re gone

[Fm]Won’t you let me know[Eb], yeah
[Fm]I’m in an awful state[Eb], baby
[Fm]You said you loved me so[Eb]
But I just don’t [Fm]know how long I can [Bb]wait

How long do I have to wait for you honey 
Before I can say that you’re gone

{comment: Instrumental break}

I asked your mama[Fm], I asked your pa[Eb]pa, 
Your [Fm]friends, your preacher and your [Eb]boss
No one [Fm]knows where you're going to [Eb]baby
Or if you’re coming back to me
Or we’re to[Fm]gether or are we [Bb]lost

Ooh baby, tell me how long 
Do I have to wait for you honey
Before a girl like me can move on
Ooh baby, tell me how long 
Do I have to wait for you honey
Before I can say that you’re gone

Won’t you let me know, yeah
I’m in an awful state, baby
You said you loved me so
But I just don’t know how long I can wait

(music)
Ooh baby, tell me how long 
Do I have to wait for you honey
Before a girl like me can move on
Baby how long 
Do I have to wait for you honey
Before I can say that you’re gone, ahh
How long do I have to wait for you honey 
Before a girl like me can move on
Baby how long 
Do I have to wait for you honey
Before I can say that you’re gone, yeah
How long, baby tell me, how long
