Lyrics

Daddy sits on the front porch swinging Looking out on a vacant field Used to be filled with burley tobacco Now he knows that it never will Brother`s found work in Indiana Sister`s a nurse at the old folks home Mama`s still cooking too much for supper And me I 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 old church piano 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 singing in the choir Me, I heard another song I caught wind and hit the road running 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 coming back again Now me, I went to Nashville Trying to beat the big deal Playing down on Broadway Getting 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 cooking 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 a 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
