Dixie Chicks Lyrics
1. Long Time Gone
Daddy sits on a’ front porch swinging Looking out on a vacant field Used to be filled with burley t'bacca Now he knows it never will My Brothers found work in Indiana M' Sisters a nurse at the old folks home Mama still cooking too much for supper And me I’ve been a long time gone [Chorus:] 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 ol' church pian'a Sitting out on her daddy’s farm She always thought that we'd be together Lord I never meant to do her harm 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 [Chorus:] 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 [Instrumental] [Bridge] Now me, I went to Nashville, Tryin' to beat 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 I’m 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 don’t know when Long time gone And it ain't coming back I said a long time gone No, I ain't honked the horn since I don’t know when Long time gone And it ain't coming back again I said a long time, long time, long time gone Well it’s 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
