The Long Road Home


SaRamonTurnoff_0295

 

 

As I drive through the night

On a lonely highway

A soft rain is fallen

The night is dark

No traffic in sight

The thoughts of home

Fills my mind

Tis a long way home

Back to my love

 

Music is playing softly

On the radio

The night is empty

The cool night air refreshing

The thoughts of my

Family sound asleep

Of a lady waiting for me

Tis a long way home

Back to my love

 

The miles fly by

On this lonely highway

I long for the comfort

Of my lady’s arms

To sleep through the night

The softness of her breathing

Relaxing to me

Tis a Long way home

Back to my lady

 

A truck stop appears ahead

Lights glowing through the rain

A drive through beckons

A cup of coffee

For the long drive

In the darkness of night

Tis a Long way home

Back to my love

 

Sipping on my coffee

A feeling of longing

Invades my thoughts

The road now climbing

Into the mountains

Will not be long now

Tis a long way home

Back to my love

 

Sheet lightning shimmering

From far away

As I enter the mountains

Winding my way higher

The storm fast approaching

I’ll soon be home

With my loving wife

Tis a Long way home

Back to my love

 

 

Dazzling light splits the sky

The dull rumble of thunder

A few moments later

As the road climbs higher

The storm now upon me

The roll of thunder now louder

The warmth of home near

Tis a Long way home

Back to my love

 

The dark ridges outlined

In the dazzling light

A cabin momentarily seen

Home at last

As I turn into the driveway

A dash to the door

As the thunder rolls

Tis a Long way home

Back to my love

 

There to meet me

Is my dear beloved

A warm smile and hug

Welcome home darling

Tis a Long way home

Back to my love

 

Breakfast is on the stove

Coffee perking away

A warm smile and hug

Welcome home darling

Children not yet awake

The storm has passed

There is a light shining

Over the mountains

Tis a Long way home

Back to my love
