Long Time Gone

Daddy sits on a’ front porch swinging
Looking out on a vacant field
Used to be filled with burley t’bacca
Now he knows it never will
My Brothers found work in Indiana
M’ Sisters a nurse at the old folks home
Mama still cooking too much for supper
And me I’ve been a long time gone…

*****

Been a long time gone
No, I ain’t hoed a row since I don’t know when
Long time gone
And it ain’t coming back again

Deliah plays that ol’ church pian’a
Sitting out on her daddy’s farm
She always thought that we’d be together
Lord, I never meant to do her harm
Said she could hear me singin’ in the choir
Me, I heard another song
I caught wind and hit the road runnin’
And Lord, I’ve been a long time gone…

*****

Been a long time gone
Lord, I ain’t had a prayer since I don’t know when
Long time gone
And it ain’t comin’ back again

Now me, I went to Nashville,
Tryin’ to beat the big deal
Playin’ down on Broadway
Gettin’ there the hard way
Living from a tip jar
Sleeping in my car
Hocking my guitar
Yeah I’m gonna be a star


Now, me and Deliah singing every Sunday
Watching the children and the garden grow
We listen to the radio to hear what’s cookin’
But the music ain’t got no soul
Now they sound tired but they don’t sound Haggard
They’ve got money but they don’t have Cash
They got Junior but they don’t have Hank
I think I think, I think

The rest is a long time gone
No, I ain’t hit the roof since I don’t know when
Long time gone
And it ain’t coming back
I said a long time gone
No, I ain’t honked the horn since I don’t know when
Long time gone
And it ain’t coming back again

I said a long time, long time, long time gone
Well it’s been a long time

Long time, long time, long time gone
Oh, it’s been a long time gone

Long time, long time, long time gone
Yeah yeah…

Daddy sits on the front porch swingin’, lookin’ out on a vacant field

It used to be filled with burly tobacco now he knows it never will

My brother found work in Indiana, my sister’s a nurse at the old folks home

Momma’s still cookin’ too much for supper and me, I’ve been a long time gone

Been a long time gone, no I ain’t hoed a row since I don’t know when

Long time gone and it ain’t comin’ back again

Delia plays that old church piano, sittin’ out on her daddy’s farm

She always thought that we’d be together, Lord, I never meant to do her harm

Said she could heard me singin’ in the choir, me I heard another song

I caught wind and hit the road runnin’ and Lord, I’ve been a long time gone

Been a long time gone, Lord, I ain’t had a prayer since I don’t know when

Long time gone and it ain’t comin’ back again

Now me, I went to Nashville, tryin’ to be the big deal.

Playin’ down on Broadway, gettin’ there the hard way

Livin’ from a tip jar, sleepin’ in my car

Hockin’ my guitar, yeah I’m gonna be a star

Now me and Delia singin’ every Sunday, watchin’ the children and the garden grow

We listen to the radio to hear what’s cookin’ but the music ain’t got no soul

Now they sound tired but they don’t sound Haggard

They got money but they don’t have Cash,

They got Junior but they don’t have Hank

I think, I think, I think the rest is a…

Long time gone, no I ain’t hit the roof since I don’t know when

Long time gone and it ain’t comin’ back..

I said a long time gone, no I ain’t honked a horn since I don’t know when

Long time gone and it ain’t comin’ back again

I said a long time, long time, long time gone, oh it’s been a long time

Long time, long time, long time gone

Oh it’s been a long time gone

Long time, long time, long time gone. Yeah, yeah.
