How Long Will It Take?
Cover of Pat Kelly
Unreleased
Lyrics:
As I walk this lonely track
Watchin' the trains beat along
Me, oh well I weep, let me hear your sound
So that my soul can be filled with joy
My heart on high

So alone and afraid I feel so I ask ya
How long, how long will it take me to be your man again
Tell me sister, how long

Well I try my best not to sigh
I still feel the tears on my face
I'm hated by you
You are loved by me
I can't take it
I will try not to break it
My heart on high

So alone and afraid I feel so I ask ya
How long, how long will it take me to be your man again
Tell me momma, how long, how long will it take me
How long, oh yeah

Well I try my best not to sigh,
But I still feel the tears on my face
I'm hated by you
You are loved by me
I can't take it I will try not to break it
My heart on high

So alone and afraid I feel so I ask ya
How long, how long will it take me to be your man again
Tell me momma, how long, how long
Will it take me to be your man again
How, how long, will it take me to be your man again
How long will it take me to be your man again, ooh Lord ooh Lord
How long, how long will it take me
To be your man, again how long
