A Long Way Home
Dwight Yoakam Lyrics


Dreamin' is only dreamin'
'Til dreamin' is the only thing that's true
Yeah wishin' is only wishin'
Till my only thoughts' the wish to be with you

I've got a long way to go before I get there
I've got a lot of field to hoe with the sun so high
Got a lot of miles to roll
And the next few only show
That there is still such a long way to go

Hopin' doesn't feel like hopin'
If I can feel your heart hopin' too
Oh touchin' doesn't feel like touchin'
Until I feel the next touch from you

I've got a long way to go before I get there
I've got a lot of field to hoe with the sun so high
I've got a lot of miles to roll
And the next few only show
That there is still such a long way to go

Wanting just keeps me wanting
The next and last both keep me wanting you
Oh and waiting just keeps me waiting
Until there's no more waiting left to do

I've got a long way to go before I get there
I've got a lot of field to hoe with the sun so high
I've got a lot of miles to roll
And the next few only show
That there's still such a long way to go

Oh I've got a lot of miles to roll
And the next few only show
That there's still such a long way to go

Don't look inside
No, don't look there
'Cause you might find
Yourself somewhere

Walkin' 'round
Lost and alone
Without one clue
That it's a long way home

Years and years
Is a lot of time
To drag your heart across
Every rock you find
Hate is deep
And its pull is strong
But the passion's short
Then it's a long way home

I can't take 
One single step for you
But I might just help
To find some
small pathway through

Don't look back
'Cause you might see
Just how far
All that used to be

Just let your mind
Think on what's gone
And then you'll know
That it's a long way home

Yeah, you'll know
That it's a long way home

You'll find out
That it's a long way home

There ain't no doubt 
That it's a long way home

A few months ago someone played two tracks from this album for me and ever since I've been hooked on Dwight Yoakam's music. I hope I can get a copy of this recording.
