Long Way To Go
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

What a beautiful song sung from the heart of the best country artist out here. Only he can put such passion into a song. And a lot of us can sure relate to A LONG WAY TO GO.

Frank Jeffers

Amazingly beautiful... sad and hopeful at the same time. Im sorry but this version blows the other one out of the water...

No one will ever replace Dwight! This song lands hard right in the middle of a heart that is waiting for the love of it's life. Dwight creates the mood with his powerful lyrics and melodies. .. No wonder his concerts are always full. Dwight is surly one of the greatest voices of the last three decades.

TTTrixie

Love how Dwight's songs always have such feeling.

Alan Lassila

Yet ...I have as yet to hear this song on the radio. Dwight schools the "new" country world yet again.

Tom Hardenbergh

As poignant as the song is, it is also so hopeful; "if I could feel your heart hoping too" (if only I could say such a thing to my girl).  And sung with the yearning only Dwight, among all of today's 'country stars',  can produce with his oh so versatile voice.

Virginia Allison

Oh Wow. Another Dwight diamond of Dwight's. I can't pick a favorite cause he makes all of his songs so individual and awesome. I think oh this is a favorite Dwight song, then I find another one. I love Ya Dwight. I only wish I could get to see him in person some day. But I don't think that will ever happen. : (

"To be with with you" Dwight will never be replaced!!!

Carrie Lynne

Beautiful Song! Dwight is Awesome!

A Lily Among The Thorns
