Fm       D#
 Long ago
       C#          C
And oh so far away
          A#m           C#
I fell in love with you
           C
Before the second show


Fm           D#
Your guitar,
          C#                 C
It sounds so sweet and clear
               A#m          C#
But you're not really there
              C
It's just the radio

C#                     C           A#m      G#
Don't you remember you told me you loved me baby?
C#                       C             A#m   G#
You said you'd be coming back this way again baby.
C#          C     A#m      G#
Baby, baby, baby, baby, oh baby,
  A#m         Fm
I love you, I really do.

Fm         D#
Loneliness
          C#         C
Is such a sad affair
          A#m          C#
And I can hardly wait
           C
To be with you again

Fm          D#
What to say,
            C#          C
To make you come again?
             A#        C#
Come back to me again,
              C
And play your sad guitar


C#                     C           A#m      G#

Don't you remember you told me you loved me baby?
C#                       C             A#m   G#
You said you'd be coming back this way again baby.
C#          C     A#m      G#
Baby, baby, baby, baby, oh baby,
  A#m         C#
I love you, I really do.

C#                     C           A#m      G#
Don't you remember you told me you loved me baby?
C#                       C             A#m   G#
You said you'd be coming back this way again baby.
C#          C     A#m      G#
Baby, baby, baby, baby, oh baby,
  A#m         Fm
I love you, I really do.




Ok, I play this song with a capo on the first fret and use the chords
Em, D, C, B and Am in the verses and C, B, Am, G, and Em in the
choruses. This seems to sound pretty close, but I think that Thurston
Moore tunes his guitars flat (Eb,Ab,Db,Gb,Bb,Eb).

Anyways, this was close enough for me...

... It's your world you can change it.
