"As Long as You Follow" is song by the rock band Fleetwood Mac. Written by band member Christine McVie (who also performs the lead vocals on the song) and her then-husband Eddy Quintela, the song was one of two new tracks on the band's 1988 greatest hits album. The sleeve for "As Long as You Follow" is identical to that of the album.

Released as a single in November 1988, the song reached #66 on the UK Singles Chart late in the year.[1] It narrowly missed the Top 40 in the United States, peaking at #43 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart in the early part of 1989; however, the song did spend one week at #1 on the Billboard adult contemporary chart in January 1989.[2]

The B-side to "As Long as You Follow" was a live version of the band's 1969 song, "Oh Well", which peaked at #2 in the UK when originally released. This live version was recorded at a 1988 Fleetwood Mac concert at the Cow Palace in San Francisco, California, and featured lead vocals by new band member Billy Burnette. The 12-inch and CD single formats further included the original 1977 studio version of the Stevie Nicks classic "Gold Dust Woman", as featured on the 1977 album Rumours.
