Lyrics: Long Way Home

It’s 4 am just the lonely few remain
Waitress takes my whisky glass turns and walks away
No one in this smoke-filled room can ease my worried soul
I’ve got nowhere to be and it’s a long way home

This room once filled with laughter and music in the air
Now is quiet as the day you left it’s more than I can bear
Everybody loves somebody I sit here alone
I’ve got nowhere to be and it’s a long way home

I take the last change from my pocket leave it scattered on the bar
No one says goodbye as I pack up this old guitar
The sun is coming up down that long and winding road
I’ve got nowhere to be and it’s a long way home

One more city one more town
So many miles between us but I can’t turn around
These lines on my face are the paths that I have known
I’ve got nowhere to be and it’s a long way home

I know I’m unforgiven I’ve got nothing left to say
Just sing me one last song before they put me in my grave
Someday you’ll think of me when you hear my solace song
When you’ve got nowhere to be and it’s a long way home
