Porter Wagoner – I'm A Long Way From Home lyrics

I'm a long way from home a long way from home
Lord please watch over me.

I just can't get a custom to the hunger
No one seems to notice that I'm cold
This life's not making me no younger
I wish I'd stayed at home like I was told.

But I'm a long way from home
I've slept last night in a public mission
You can't imagine well you just can't imagine how I felt
The things that happened seemed like fiction
Someone even tried to steal my shoes while I slept.

I'm a long way from home and so all alone
And scared like I thought I never would be
I'm a long way from home everything is wrong
Lord please watch over me...
