Long Road Lyrics

Long black limousine -
Shiniest car I've ever seen.
The back seat is nice and clean;
She rides as quiet as a dream.

Someone dug a hole six long feet in the ground
I said goodbye to you, and I threw my roses down.
Ain't nothing left at all in the end of being proud,
With me riding in this car, and you flying through them clouds.

I've had some time to think about it
And watch the sun sink like a stone
I've had some time to think about you
On the long ride home

One day, I took your tiny hand
Put your finger in the wedding band
Your daddy gave a piece of land
We laid ourselves the best of plans.

Forty years go by with someone laying in your bed
Forty years of things you say you wish you'd never said
How hard would it have been to say some kinder words instead,
I wonder as I stare up at the sky a-turning red.

I've had some time to think about it
And watch the sun sink like a stone
I've had some time to think about you
On the long ride home

Headlights searching on the driveway
The house is dark as it can be
I go inside and all is silent,
And seems as empty as the inside of me.

I've had some time to think about it,
And watch the sun sink like a stone
I've had some time to think about you -
On the long, on the long...
Oh the long, on the long -
ride home.
