Long Rider

OH MY CHILDREN CAN’T REMEMBER MY FACE
I’VE BEEN A LONG RIDER SO GONE
IN THIS TIRED RACE
I PACK MY JACK AND GET BACK HOME
YOUR DADDY’S TIRED OF BEING ALL ALONE
PRAYIN’ FOR THE RAIN TO WASH ME AWAY
SEND ME BACK HOME TO WHERE I WANNA STAY

I’VE BEEN A LONG RIDER WAY TOO LONG
A LONG RIDER WAY TOO LONG
WAY TOO LONG DOWN IN THE STOMACH OF THE BEAST
OH MY CHILDREN HAVE MERCY ON ME

I TURNED OUT THE LOVE LIGHT
AND THEN I GOT STONED
I REMEMBERED TO FORGET YOU BUT FORGOT THAT THE LOVE BURNS ON
NOW I’M LOST IN THE FIRE
WAITING FOR TRUTH AND DESIRE
PRAYIN’ FOR THE RAIN
TO WASH ME AWAY
AND SEND ME BACK HOME TO WHERE I WANNA STAY

I’VE BEEN A LONG RIDER WAY TOO LONG
A LONG RIDER WAY TOO LONG
WAY TOO LONG DOWN IN THE STOMACH OF THE BEAST
OH MY LOVER HAVE MERCY ON ME

I WANNA GO HOME
I WANNA GO HOME
BEFORE MY RIVER RUNS DRY, MY FEET TURN TO DUST
BEFORE THE ROAD I’M ON GOES BLACK
AND MY WHEELS ALL RUST

I’VE FELT PAIN AND COUNTED LOSSES
I FOUND THE NAILS THAT HUNG MY HEROES TO THE CROSSES
I’VE WAITED FOR THE HOLY GHOST
TO DRAG ME OFF OF THIS WICKED COAST
PRAYIN’ FOR THE RAIN TO WASH ME AWAY
AND SEND ME BACK HOME TO WHERE I WANNA STAY

I’VE BEEN A LONG RIDER WAY TOO LONG
A LONG RIDER WAY TOO LONG
WAY TOO LONG DOWN IN THE STOMACH OF THE BEAST
OH MY LORD HAVE MERCY ON ME
I’VE BEEN A LONG RIDER WAY TOO LONG
A LONG RIDER WAY TOO LONG
WAY TOO LONG DOWN IN THE STOMACH OF THE BEAST
OH MY LORD HAVE MERCY ON ME
