We've Been A Long Time Gone-1946
  Columbia FB3262 Formby/Cliffe

Many moons ago, we went to face the foe in the far off distant past
But now we're all with wrinkles like a lot of Rip Van Winkles.
But we re back home now at last.

We've been a long time, a long time, a terrible hell of a long time gone.
It was the wrong time to leave the little wife,
To leave the little sweetheart at the right time of her life
And when she meets you and she greets you
With a 'hello darling' now we'll carry on
I'm going to love you more and more, the kids are at school till four
You've been a terrible hell of a long time gone,

You've been a long time, a long time, a terrible hell of a long time gone.
It was the wrong time to leave the little wife
To leave your little sweetheart at the right time of her life,
And when she meets you and greets you
With a 'hello darling' now we'll carry on
I'm going to love you more and more than ever I did before.
You've been a terrible hell of a long time gone.

You've been a long time, a long time, a terrible hell of a long time gone.
It was the wrong time to leave the little wife
To leave the little sweetheart at the right time of her life.
And when she meets you and greets you
With a 'hello darling' now we'll carry on
I'm going to love you more and more, so hurry and bolt the door.
You've been a terrible hell of a long time gone.
