My Girl (Gone, Gone, Gone) Lyrics

(CHORUS)
Gone gone gone, she been gone so long
She been gone gone gone so long
Gone gone gone, she been gone so long
She been gone gone gone so long
Gone gone gone, she been gone so long
gone gone gone so long
Gone gone gone, she been gone so long
wonder if I’m ever gonna see my girl
gone gone gones She’s been
gone so long so long
wonder if I’m ever gonna see my girl

Ever since she left me
I sure feel all alone
A little misunderstanding
I can`t get her on the telephone
Hanging out down on Main Street
Living in a different world
Standing around
With the gang on the corner
Talking about my girl

My girl, she was the world to me
She`s gone away across the sea

My girl is just a memory
She been so long anyway

(CHORUS)
Gone gone gone, she been gone so long
She been gone gone gone so long
Gone gone gone, she been gone so long

gone gone gone so long
Gone gone gone, she been gone so long
she’s been gone gone gone so long

She didn`t have to leave me
She didn`t have to run
She didn`t have to go
Without a word to anyone
I hope she`s doing alright
Got no way to know
Unless she gets to hear this song
Hear it on the radio

My girl, she was the world to me
She`s gone and that`s a tragedy
My girl is just a memory
She been so long anyway

(music)
CHORUS)

Gone gone gone, she been gone so long
She been gone gone gone so long
Gone gone gone, she been gone so long
She been gone gone gone so long
Gone gone gone, she been gone so long
gone gone gone she’s been gone so long
Gone gone gone, she been gone so long
wonder if I’m ever gonna see my girl
Gone gone gone, she been gone so long
wonder if I’m ever gonna see my girl

Well, I hope she gets the message
Gotta get her back you know
Gonna track her down, I`ll 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 I`m gonna get her
Talkin about my girl, my girl

My girl, my girl, my girl, my
girl (until fade)!

Hear “My Girl (Gone, Gone, Gone)”

    2. Actually, gang, Chilliwack was a 2-hit wonder here in America. Their immediate followup to ‘My girl’ was, ‘I believe’ which hit #33 in Billboard. Look it up, if ya don’t believe me. God bless!

    3. Michael Waterman says:

      Dave,

      You are correct. In fact, I noted that Chilliwack is a two-hit wonder in the post and that it hit #33 on the Billboard Top 40, as you rightly noted. I think many people view them as a one-hit wonder in the same way that people would also think Franke and the Knockouts is a one-hit wonder band as well for “Sweetheart,” their 1981 top 10 hit. But actually, Franke landed three songs in the top 40…but no one remembers the other two (unless you’re a member of the Franke and the Knockouts fan club). Sometimes I break the rules and write about “non-traditional” one-hit wonders simply because the songs are so great (My Girl is a great example of that phenomenon).

      Thanks for calling out the facts and I hope you’ll keep reading and commenting.
      Michael

      chilliwack may be a one hit wonder wherever you are, but they are a Canadian icon with far more than just song

    5. Michael Waterman says:

      And a great little band. Big fan of My Girl!

    6. Nathalie says:

      Oooh boy! “Great little band”? ‘One hit wonder?” It would behoove you to be a little less patronizing my friend. If you are a one hit wonder, how do you put out an album like OPUS X?
      How did they put out a “Best Hits’ album with one tune?” The US is not the center of the musical universe- surprise! Time to broaden your listening scope. Here are their 13 hit wonders: 1. Don’t Stop 2. Gettin’ Better 3. Watcha Gonna Do? 4. My Girl (Gone, Gone, Gone) 5. I Believe
      6. Communication Breakdown 7. Arms Of Mary 8. Fly At Night 9. Baby Blue 10. California Girl
      11. Crazy Talk 12. Lonesome Mary 13. Raino
