Hayes Carll – Long Way Home lyrics

Ramblin' boy you been around
From Dallas to the underground
High above and down below
Places I was scared to go

You sang it loud in case they heard
Hangin' on to every word
Gentle as a lullaby
Firecrackers in your eyes

And I would give anything
For one more night to run
For one last song to sing

You weren't askin' much at all
Just catch you when you fall
On your own, the long way home

What's that sadness in your smile
You've been cryin' all the while
Could you lean upon my shoulder
I guess you'd die to just get older

So what are we supposed to do
Just walk around forever blue
And all this hurry up and wait
Was it chance or was it fate?


You weren't askin' much at all
Just catch you when you fall
On your own, the long way home
