Gone, gone, gone, she been gone so long/She been gone, gone, gone so long
Edited on Sun Jan-16-05 09:18 PM by NightTrain
What the hell, let's move into the early '80s....


A-Gone, gone, gone, she been gone so long
She been gone, gone, gone so long (twice)

A-Gone, gone, gone, she been gone so long
A-Gone, gone, gone, gone so long

Gone, gone, gone, she been gone so long
Well I wonder if I ever gonna see my girl (twice)

Ever since she left me, I sure feel all alone
A little misunderstanding, I cant get her on the telephone
Hangin on down the mainstreet, livin in a different world
Standin around with the gang on the corner talkin about my girl

(chorus)
My girl she was the world to me
Shes gone away across the sea
My girl is just a memory
She been so long away

A-Gone, gone, gone, she been gone so long (etc)

She didnt have to leave me, she didnt have to run
She didnt have to go without a word to anyone
I hope shes doin all right, I got no way to know
Unless she gets to hear this song, hear it on the radio

(chorus)
My girl she was the world to me
Shes gone and thats a tragedy
My girl is just a memory
She been so long away

(guitar solo)

A-gone, gone, gone...etc

I hope she gets the message, I gotta get her back ya know
Gonna track her down, gonna find that girl, gonna tell her that I love her
so Put the word on the grapevine, spread it all around the world Sooner or
later I know Im gonna get her, talkin about my girl

My girl....

2. 1981, to be exact.
Chilliwack had been around in their native Canada for a decade or more, but they never charted in the U.S. until "My Girl (Gone, Gone, Gone)" came out in '81.

3. Who did that song that was out around the same time.....
.....I think it was called "Sausalito Summer Nights" I'm pretty sure it was a one-hit wonder, and was out in 81.

....the artist. 81 was a pretty good year for rock and pop music. Here are some of my favorite songs from that year:

Under Pressure, Queen with David Bowie

Talk To Ya Later, The Tubes

Precious to Me, Phil Seymour

You Better, You Bet, The Who

Burning' For You, Blue Oyster Cult

Find Your Way Back, Starship

The Waiting, Tom Petty and The Heart breakers
