So Long

This song is by X and appears on the live album Live at the Whisky A Go-Go on the Fabulous Sunset Strip (1988).

Based on Woody Guthrie's So Long, It's Been Good To Know Yuh
(Dusty Old Dust)

I've sung this before, but I'll sing it again
About the place that I lived on the wild windy plains
In a state of confusion, in county of LA
And here's what all of my friends they did say:

Honey
So long, it's been good to know yuh
So long, it's been good to know yuh
So long, it's been good to know yuh
This dusty old dust is takin' my home
And I got to be driftin' along

Well the lovers they sat in the dark and sparked
They hugged and kissed in that dusty old dark
They sighed and cried, hugged and kissed
Instead of marriage, they talked like this:

Honey
So long, it's been good to know yuh
So long, it's been good to know yuh
So long, it's been good to know yuh
This dusty old dust has takin' my home
But I got to be driftin' along

Well, the telephone rang, an' it jumped off the wall
That was the preacher, just makin' his call
He said, "Kind friend, this may the end
It may be your last chance at salvation from sin!"

The churches was jammed, and the churches was packed
An' that dusty old dust storm blowed so black
Preacher could not read a word of his text
An' he folded his Bible, an' he took up collection
Said:

So long, it's been good to know yuh
So long, it's been good to know yuh
So long, it's been good to know yuh
This dusty old dust has takin' my home
But I got to be driftin' along

Well some friends that I know had a mighty great band
They played and they played across this great land
But the radio would not play their heartfelt songs
So they packed up their bags and they moved to Wyoming

Singing
So long, it's been good to know yuh
So long, it's been good to know yuh
So long, it's been good to know yuh
This dusty old dust has takin' my home
But I got to be driftin' along
