Well, I've sung this song and I'll sing it again,
Of the people I've met and the places I've been,
Of some of the troubles that bothered my mind,
And a lot of good people that I've left behind.

Singin' so long, it's been good to know ya,
So long, it's been good to know ya,
So long, it's been good to know ya,
Been a long time since I've been home,
And I got to be drifting along.

Well, I took a stroll down to the grocery store,
It was crowded with people, some rich and some poor,
I asked the man how his butter was sold,
He said one pound of butter for two pounds of gold.

Singin' so long, it's been good to know ya,
So long, it's been good to know ya,
So long, it's been good to know ya,
Been a long time since I've been home,
And I got to be drifting along.

The sweethearts they sat in the dark and they sparked,
They hugged and they kissed in the dusty old dark,
They sighed and they cried and they hugged and they kissed,
But instead of marriage they all spoke like this:

Singin' so long, it's been good to know ya,
So long, it's been good to know ya,
So long, it's been good to know ya,
Been a long time since I've been home,
And I got to be drifting along.

Well, I've sung this song, I'll sing it again,
Of the people I've met and the places I've been,
Of some of the troubles that bothered my mind,
And a lot of good people that I've left behind.

Singin' so long, it's been good to know ya,
So long, it's been good to know ya,
So long, it's been good to know ya,
Been a long time since I've been home,
And I got to be drifting along.

Well, it's so long, it's been good to know ya,
So long, it's been good to know ya,
So long, it's been good to know ya,
Been a long time since I've been home,
And I got to be drifting along.

So long, it's been good to know ya,
So long, it's been good to know ya,
So long, it's been good to know ya,
Been a long time since I've been home,
And I got to be drifting along.
