Long Time Gone Lyrics - Dixie Chicks

Review The Song (0)



Daddy sits on the front porch swinging
Looking out on a vacant field
Used to be filled with burly t'bacca
Now he knows it never will
My Brother found work in Indiana
Sisters a nurse at the old folks home
Mama's still cooking too much for supper
And me Ive been a long time gone


Been a long time gone
No, I ain't hoed a row since I don't know when
Long time gone
And it ain't coming back again

Deliah plays that old church pian'a
Sitting out on her daddys farm
She always thought that we'd be together
Lord I never meant to do her harm
sponsored links
Said she could hear me singin' in the choir
Me, I heard another song
I caught wind and hit the road runnin'
And Lord, I've been a long time gone

Been a long time gone
Lord, I ain't had a prayer since I don't know when
Long time gone
And it ain't comin' back again

Now me, I went to Nashville,
Tryin' to be the big deal
Playin' down on Broadway
Gettin' there the hard way
Living from a tip jar
Sleeping in my car
Hocking my guitar
Yeah Im gonna be a star

Now, me and Deliah singing every Sunday
Watching the children and the garden grow
We listen to the radio to hear what's cookin, But the music ain't got no soul
Now they sound tired but they don't sound Haggard
They've got money but they don't have Cash
They got Junior but they don't have Hank
I think, I think, I think

The rest is a long time gone
No, I ain't hit the roof since I dont know when
Long time gone
And it ain't coming back
I said a long time gone
No, I ain't hucked a corn since I dont know when
Long time gone
And it ain't coming back again

I said a long time, long time, long time gone
Well its been a long time

Long time, long time, long time gone
Oh, it's been a long time gone

Long time, long time, long time gone
Yeah yeah
