The Civil Wars – Long Time Gone lyrics

Look out, Ma, and look out, Pa
Look at that horizon
Something's out there kickin' up dust
Always coming fast

Look out, sister; look out brother
River's gonna be risin'
Somethin' we've been waitin' for
Oh, it's here at last

It's been a long, long time comin'
It's been a long, long time comin'

Let's all sing, let's all dance
Stomp our feet in that red grave
C'mon out of those ole, brown fields
Watch them turn to gold

Watch them turn to gold

It's been a long, long time comin'
It's been a long, long time comin'
It's been a long, long time comin'
It's been a long, long time gone

The wait is over, things have changed
And not a moment too soon
We've all prayed for a single drop of rain
And now, a storm's comin' through

It's been a long, long time comin'
It's been a long, long time gone
It's been a long, long time comin'
It's been a long, long time gone
