Are you ready?

In this lesson, it's you, me, and the band, playing 'Three Long Days', in the key of E.

Don't worry if the C#m hybrid in the bridge gives you trouble at this point - you can always just hang back and re-join me on the easier chords in the chorus and the verses.

And remember, the chord is shaped exactly like one of your old friends, the A minor. It is just placed higher on the neck. Try to use that familiar touch-point to help you get it under your belt.

Remember, you'll find the lyrics and chords under the 'Image' tab below the video, and you can print them out by going to the 'Print Lesson' tab.

Have fun!

One, two, three, four......

THREE LONG DAYS

CHORUS:
Three long days - Feels like eternity
Three long days - It's really hurting me
Three long days - Sweet baby, when will you be home

VERSE 1:
If I had been untrue - You'd have good reason
Been unkind to you - You'd be right to think of leaving
But out of the blue - You say you're needing some time
Just for yourself, and you -
To catch your breath and clear your mind (now it's been)

CHORUS:
Three long days - Feels like eternity
Three long days - It's really hurting me
Three long days - Sweet baby, when will you be home

VERSE 2:
Three long days - I keep checking my phone
Three long days - I can't leave it alone
Put yourself in my place - Come on, baby, throw me a bone
Call and say we'll be okay - Don't leave me out here on my own

BRIDGE
If there’s one thing that makes time slow to a crawl
It’s waiting for the other shoe to fall

CHORUS:
Three long days - Feels like eternity
Three long days - It's really hurting me
Three long days - Sweet baby, when will you be home

Baby please, come on home
Baby please, come on home
Baby please, come on home
