Now Listen People! Rob is one of our elves here. I've been telling and bragging about how great the Mudcat People are and how any musical question can be answered. You making a lyer out of me! Surely someone must know the answer to this. If not, maybe can find it on the net or ask a friend. Damn. I guess this place isn't so great after all... I guess I'll just shut it down.

Gee, look at that. Max starts cracking the whip at us after four minutes, and Allan C. saves the day by coming up with the goods - eight minutes, from question to response. Good show, Allan.

THE LONG ROAD
Cliff Eberhardt
 E                  
There are the ones you call friends
                            Amaj7 A
There are the ones you call late at night
                            E
There are the ones who sweep away your past
         B                B7
With one wave of their hand
E
There are the ones you call family
E                           Amaj7         A
There are the ones you hold close to your heart
                               E
There are the ones who see the danger in you
          B       B7
And won't understand
E               G#m          A   B
I can hear your voice in the wind
E       G#m       A            B   
Are you calling to me Down the long road
E             G#m                   A B
Do you really think that there's an end
E      G#m         A                B    E   A    E A   
I have followed my dreams, down the long road
E
You are the one that I met long ago
                           Amaj7
You are the one who saw my dream
A                           E
You are the one who took me from my home
            B            B7
And left me off somewhere
E
Somehow I feel you are here
E                      Amaj7
You are waiting in that dream
A                            E
Somewhere down this road we will awake
             B            B7
And be at the start again
E               G#m          A   B
I can hear your voice in the wind
E       G#m       A             B
Are you calling to me Down the long road
E             G#m                   A    B
Do you really think that there's an end
E               G#m   A             B    E    A   E   A   E   
I have lived my whole life, down the long road

SOLO

C#m         G#m      F#m   B
I've got to find you tonight
C#m    G#m          F#m   B
Are you waiting for me
C#m    G#m         F#m B
I have followed my dream
C#m    G#m            F#m   B   
I have lived my whole life
