Long Time Gone [Radio Version]
by Dixie Chicks



Daddy sits on a front porch swinging
Looking out on a vacant field
Used to be filled with burley tobacco
Now he knows it never will

My brothers found work in Indiana
My sisters a nurse in an old folks home
Mama still cookin' to much for supper
And me I''ve been a long time gone

/Chorus:/
Been a long time gone,
No i ain't hoed a roe since i don't know when
Long time gone
And I ain't comin' back again

Delilah plays that old church piano
Sittin' 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 prayer since I don't know when
Long time gone
And I ain't comin' back again

/instrumental:/

Now me I went to Nashville
Tryin' to beat the big deal
Playin' down on broadway
Gettin' there the hard way
Livin' from a tip jar
Sleepin' in my car
Hockin' my guitar
Yeah, I'm gonna be a star

Now me and Delilah singin' every day
Watchin' the children and the garden grow
but the music ain't got no soul
Now they sound tired but they don't sound haggard
