Long Time Gone

Daddy sits on the front porch swingin’
Look in’ out on a bacon field
Used to be filled with burning tobacco
Now he knows it never will
My brother found work in Indiana
Sisters a nurse at the old folks home
Momma still cooking too much for supper
And me I’ve been a long time gone

[chorus]
Baby long time gone
No I aint hoed a row since I don’t know when
Long time gone
And I aint comin’ back again

Amilia 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 her me singin in the choir
Me I heard another song
I caught wind and hit the road runnin’
And lord i’ve been long time gone

[chorus]
Baby long time gone
Lord i aint had a purse since I don’t know when
Long time gone
And it aint commin’ back again

Now me I went to Nashville
Trying to beat the big deal
Playing down to Broadway
Getin’ in the ahrd way
Livin’ from a tip jar
Sleepin’ in mah car
Huggin’ my guitar ya im gonna be a staaaar

Now me until your singin’ every sunday
Watchin’ the children in the garden grove
Listen to the radio to hear what’s cookin’
But the music aint got….NO SOUL!

Now they sound tired but they don’t sound haggard
They got money but they don;t got cash
They got Junior but they don;t got Hank
I thank
I thank
I thank the rest is….

[chorus]
Long time gone
No I aint hit the roof since i don’t know when
Long time gone
And it aint commin’ back
I said Long time gone
No I aint parked a Ford since I don’t know when
Long time gone
And it aint commin’ back agaiiiin

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

Long time, long time, long time gooooone
Oh it’s been a long
Tiiiiime
Gooooone

Long time, long time, long time gone….yea yea!
