Long Time Gone

Well I've been thinking about her a lot again lately
The way that she smiled and the sweet love she gave me
She's a long, She's a long time gone

And I think of the time that we had together
Riding through the stormy weather

But it's a long, a long time gone

And it's hard to hold a man like me

I was young and strong, wild and free

But driving through these black nights alone
I'm trying to find my way back home

It’s a long, a long haul home

It takes me back to a time long ago
a country dirt road all covered in snow
it’s been a long, a long hard road

And it taken you from me
across the mountains, over the seas

I couldn’t stay, I had to get away

I said I’m going away and I’m leaving today

Now what can I say about the price I pay

 Now back when I left my little hometown

I was bound for the stars and I never looked down
Cause it's a long, a long way down

And the people I love that I left behind
they have their places in this heart of mine
Cause they're a long a long time gone

Yeah she's a long, she's a long time gone
Me I'm a long way from my home

It's been a long, a long time gone

such a long, such a long time gone

But I've been thinking about her a lot again lately
