Intro: C  G  F  C  F Dm  G7


C               G
How long will I love you?
F          C                  F
As long as the stars are above you
Dm              G7
And longer if i can

C               G
How long will I need you?
F              C              F
As long as the seasons need to
Dm           G7
Follow their plan

    How long will I be with you?
    Em                            F
    As long as the sea is bound to
    Dm            G7
    Wash upon the sand

C               G
How long will I want you?
F          C             F
As long as you want me too
Dm            G7
And longer by far

C               G
How long will I hold you?
F          C                   F
As long as your father told you
Dm             G7
As long as you can

    How long will I give to you?
    Em                    F
    As long as live to you
    Dm                    G7
    And however long you say    

C               G
How long will I love you?
F          C                  F 
As long as the stars are above you
    Dm            C
And longer if I may...

  1. i use U U DU for a strumming pattern

  2. I love this! I like to use a super simple down up strum with a louder stroke. I also like to add a 1 on the C string and open pluck on the e string while moving from each stanza. I also like to play two G chords, two A chords, one A7 chord, and then D at the very end of the song. Hope that made a little bit of sense :)

  3. What’s a good sturruming pattern for this??

  4. Grell Sutcliff

    If you want to add the middle part between the verses it’s like this:
    Hope this helps

Please do not ask for strumming patterns. Sharing online how to literally play a song (i.e. strumming, rhythm and tempo) is not allowed by the MPA (Music Publishers Association) because of copyright issues.

Carefully listen to the song and try to really "feel" the rhythm. Once you get the basics of strumming, I can assure you it'll go real quick. Maybe the strumming guide can help you on your way.
