Alan Jackson – Long Hard Road lyrics

It's a long, hard road I'm traveling on
It seems forever I've been gone
Yeah, it's a long, hard road I'm traveling on
Lord, I need to find my way back home

I hear the voice of my sweet mama calling
Telling me to change my ways
In my mind, I smell the dogwoods blooming
Takes me back to yesterday

Yeah, it's a long, hard road I'm traveling on
It seems forever I've been gone
Yeah, it's a long, hard road I'm traveling on
Lord, I need to find my way back home

I left behind the person I once was
Changed for good and sought the bad
I've wasted days and nights on love, but got none
I've traded happiness for sad

Yeah, it's a long, hard road I'm traveling on
It seems forever I've been gone
Yeah, it's a long, hard road I'm traveling on
Lord, I need to find my way back home

I've felt the hurt of a broken heart inside me
I've felt the joy of love unchained
I've seen the rain wash away the mountain
Like tears have washed away my pain

Yeah, it's a long, hard road I'm traveling on
It seems forever I've been gone
Yeah, it's a long, hard road I'm traveling on
Lord, I need to find my way back home

I've watched a loved one dear to my heart dying
I've heard a newborn baby's cry
I've walked the path of glory and of darkness
I've felt the guilt of a senseless life

Yeah, it's a long, hard road I'm traveling on
It seems forever I've been gone
Yeah, it's a long, hard road I'm traveling on
Lord, I need to find my way back home

Drank to forget, and I've drank to remember
I've drank for love and I've drank for hate
I've danced alone with a full moon up above me
Lighting the way to Heaven's gate

Yeah, it's a long, hard road I'm traveling on
It seems forever I've been gone
Yeah, it's a long, hard road I'm traveling on
Lord, I need to find my way back home

I've felt the love of Jesus shining on me
I've felt the Devil's wicked ways
Prayed for forgiveness, prayed for redemption
Prayed just to make it through the day

Yeah, it's a long, hard road I'm traveling on
It seems forever I've been gone
Yeah, it's a long, hard road I'm traveling on
Lord, I need to find my way back home
