*** verse 1:
A2 e
Remember this, given us
C#m b a2
By someone's set of parents
E b
I don't recall, I admit
D2 a2
I don't know just who's to blame
E f#m
For relics of our history...

A2 e
To tell the truth, it wasn't bad
C#m b a2
We had to have a reason
E b
And lack of love wasn't it
D2 a2
We both know we had a past
E f#m
But present must contain
A e b
A future where both of us can fit

*** chorus:
E b a
So long and sorry, darling
C#m b e
I was counting to forever
A e b
And never even got to ten
E b a
So long and sorry, darling
C#m b e
When we found a rip in heaven
A e b d2
We should have just ascended then

*** verse 2:
It's funny how you just assume a2 | e
You're going to work it out c#m | b | a2
Or give it at least a try e | b |
But optimistic feelings can't be d2 | a
Passed from hand to hand e | f#m
You handle them they tend to die a | e | b

*** chorus:
So long and sorry, darling e | b a
I was counting to forever c#m | b e
And never even got to ten a | e b
So long and sorry, darling e | b a
When we found a rip in heaven c#m | b e
We should have just ascended then a | e b

Well, better than if I just go away
G#m c#m b a a2
Preserving the fiction of
E
Indifference now
B
Replacing love

So long and sorry, darling e | b a
