LONG RIDE

VERSE 1:

Day fades

Night comes on the shoulders of a light wind

Kissing her face

As she leaves this old run down town again

There she goes

Off into the sunset

There she goes

Gonna take the long way home

 

VERSE 2:

Road to hoe

Life comes in tablespoon fulls

“No need to cry”

She says as she walks out the door this time

There she goes

Off into the sunset

There she goes

Gonna leave this time on her own


CHORUS:

Gonna be a long ride

Gonna be a long ride

Long ride

 

VERSE 3:

Over the greens through the valleys of her mind

Holding so tight

To the dreams that she’s kept all of her life

There she goes

Off into the sunset

There she goes

She’s gonna take the long way home

 

CHORUS:

Gonna be a long ride

Gonna be a long ride

There she goes

 

BRIDGE:

There she goes, there she goes

Gonna move to the city on her own

She takes all that she has

She takes all that she owns

There she goes

 

CHORUS:

Gonna be a long ride
