How Long 
Recorded by Connie Smith
Written by Harlan Howard, Connie Smith, Marty Stuart

C C7 F
I’m still hurtin’ I’ve tried everything I know
G7 C
I could walk away but there’s no place to go
C7 F
Just like a shadow your memory follows me
C G7 C
And no matter where I go I can’t find a place to be

How long how long does a heart have to break
C G7
Oh how much can it take before it forgets and moves on
F G7
Regrets there’s so much regret
F G7 C
Oh I know that in time I’ll forget but how long

C7 F
When someone’s hurtin’ is there’s a certain day or night
G7 C
My heart will whisper that everything's alright
C7 F
And that it’s over and finally I’m free
C G7 C
But tonight all this waitin’ seems just like eternity

Repeat #2

Regrets oh there’s so much regret
F G7 C
Yes I know that in time I’ll forget but how long
