[Verse:]
Dark highways and the country roads
Don't scare you like they did
The woods and winds, they'll welcome you
To the places you once hid

[Verse:]
You grew up and you moved away
Across a foreign see
And what was left was what was kept
That's what you gave to me

[Chorus:]
You thought you left it all behind
You thought you'd up and gone
When all you did was figure out
How to take the long way home

[Verse:]
The southern rain was heavy
Almost heavy as your heart
A cavalcade of strangers came
To tear your world apart

[Verse:]
The bells of old Saint Mary's
And now the cling of charcoal hill
And you took the old religion folk
I won't be home again

[Chorus: X2]
You thought you left it all behind
You thought you'd up and gone
When all you did was figure out
How to take the long way home

The long way homeā€¦
