...slowly I turned. Step by step. And then...

Been so long
It's been a mighty long time
Since by baby left this town
I don't have nowhere to go
And I don't even have a dime.

Been so long
The carpet has faded on the flo'
Been so long
My light don't burn bright no mo'
I jes sit here wonderin'
Where in the world did...my baby go.

Been so long
My just can't sleep at night
When I go to eat my breakfast in the mornin'
My teeth and tongue, begin to fight.

Ooooooh! Oooh! Ooh! My Baby left town.
(She had to left town.)

Mighty Long Time

As sang and played for me by Mister Williamson as we rode around Birmingham in the backseat of an old '48 Dodge looking for a liquor store a mighty mighty long time ago.
Thanks Maverick, for giving me the occasion to relive the memory.
