Long Ride Home Patty Griffin (1000 Kisses) Long black limousine Shiniest car I've ever seen The back seat is nice and clean She rides as quiet as a dream I said goodbye to you and I threw my roses down With me riding in a race car, and you flying through the clouds Someone dug a hole six long feet in the ground Ain't nothing left at all in the end of being proud I've had some time to think about you And watch the stone set like a stone I've had some time to think about you On the long ride home Put your finger in the wedding band One day I took your tiny hand We laid ourselves the best of plans Your daddy gave a piece of land Forty years of things you wish you'd never said Forty years go by with someone laying in your bed How hard would it have been to say some kinder words instead I wonder as I stare up at the sky turning red I've had some time to think about you And watch the stone set like a stone I've had some time to think about you On the long ride home Headlights staring at the driveway The house is dark as it can be I go inside and all is silent It seems as empty as the inside of me I've had some time to think about you And watch the stone set like a stone On the long, on the long I've had some time to think about you Oh the long, on the long On the long ride home
