Long May You Run Chords
Demo Lyrics & Pdf

This song is credited to the Stills Young band of 1976 as CSNY were on separate career paths with David Crosby and Graham Nash working together and Young and Still on separate projects. Long May You Run was recorded during the summer of 1976 and released in the fall.  

After 9 dates on tour with Stephen Stills, Neil Young dropped out of the duos tour to promote the album. The song was released ahead of the album and peaked at #71 in the UK. I'm giving credit as a CSNY song as the four of them have performed the song many times together.

  • Drop D Tuning = No
  • Capo = No
  • Rhythm = root down root up down up and repeat
  • Picking = Yes
  • Chords = D, Dmaj7, G, Bm, A7, A7sus, A, A#, C

There is a break section in this song but it's played with a harmonica. But you can pick out the melody as I discuss in the full lesson as as you'll see here in the demo clip.


Long May You Run Lyrics


We've been through some things together
With trunks of memories still to come
We found things to do in stormy weather
Long may you run

Long may you run. - Long may you run.
Although these changes have come
With your chrome heart shining in the sun
Long may you run

Well, it was back in Blind River in -1962
When I last saw you alive
But we missed that shift on the long decline
Long may you run

Long may you run. - Long may you run.
Although these changes have come
With your chrome heart shining in the sun
Long may you run

Maybe The Beach Boys have got you now
With those waves singing "Caroline No"
Rollin' down that - empty ocean road
Gettin' to the surf on time.

Long may you run. - Long may you run.
Although these changes have come
With your chrome heart shining in the sun
Long may you run

Long may you run. - Long may you run.
Although these changes have come
With your chrome heart shining in the sun
Long may you run
