How Long Lyrics

by The Eagles

Like a bluebird with his heart removed
Lonely as a train
Ive run just as far as I can run

If I never see the good old days
Shinin in the sun
Ill be doin fine and then some

How long, how long
Woman will you weep?
How long, how long
Rock yourself to sleep

Well I been doin time in a lonesome prison
Where the sun dont shine
Just outside, the freedom river runs

Out there in that shiny night
With bloodhounds on your mind
Dont you know its the same sad situation?

How long, how long
Woman will you weep?
How long, how long
Rock yourself to sleep

Everybody feels alright you know
I heard some poor fool say, somebody, ooo
Everyone is out there on the loose

Well I wish I lived in the land of fools
No one knew my name
But what you get is not quite what you choose

Tell me, how long, how long
Woman will you weep?
How long, how long
Rock yourself to sleep

How long, how long
Muddy River runs so deep
How long, how long
Good night baby, rock yourself to sleep
Sleep tight baby, rock yourself to sleep
B-b-b-bye bye baby, rock yourself to sleep
