This is my transcription from the Harry Belafonte recording.

'LONG ABOUT NOW
(Fred Hellerman and Fran Minkoff)

'Long about now, my woman's waking
Shaking the sleep from out of her eyes
Starting a smile so warm
That smile is making
The morning sun ashamed to rise

'Long about now, my woman's bending
Tending the fire and setting the bread
Starting a song so sweet
That at its ending
That fire is burning extra red

'Long about now, my woman's waiting
Shading the sun from off of her brow
Searching the winding road
With eyes that try to find me

And longing after me, 'long about now
'Long about now, 'long about now

[instrumental break]

'Long about now, my woman's waiting
Shading the sun from off of her brow
Searching the winding road
With eyes that try to find me

And longing after me, 'long about now




Also recorded by Tony Bennett

Bennett sings:

'Long about now, my woman's waking
Shaking the sleep from out of her eyes
Smiling a smile so warm
That smile is making
The morning sun ashamed to rise

'Long about now, my woman's bending
Tending the fire and setting the bread
Starting a song so sweet
That at its ending
The fire is burning extra red

'Long about now, my woman's waiting
Shading the sun from off of her brow
Searching the winding road
With eyes that try to find me

And longing after me, 'long about now
'Long about now, 'long about now
