Song Description

Song aboutcoming home.

Story Behind the Song

Soldier takes a train ride home and has conversations with 2 passengers about life.

Lyrics

This Ride Home

This train snakes along
Through a gray September day
I watch the raindrops fall
Cascade down my window pane
A young girl sitting next to me
Points out the fields of cotton
I see an innocence in her face
I thought I had long forgotten
(LIFT)
She asks me where I'm heading to
And where I was before
So, I tell her I'm a soldier
On my way home from the war
(CHORUS)
And I took out all my pictures of you
Told her how you had made me stronger
Yeah, being at war was so very long
But this ride home just seems...
A little bit longer
(2nd)
Well, the young girl got off the train
Just outside of Graysonville
And told me to take care of myself
I said, Yeah, you know I will
And in her spot a tired man
Who was carrying a briefcase
Sat down and loosened his tie
And sighed "Man, I hate this place"
(LIFT)
I looked at him and said
It seems we've both been away too long
He answered, I don't know about you
But I got three great girls at home
(CHORUS)
And he took out all his pictures of them
A pretty wife and two young daughters
30 days out on the road is long
But this ride home just seems...
A little bit longer
(BRIDGE)
So I thought about my time abroad
And how I had protected a nation
And gave a chance for that man and little girl
To meet their loved ones at the station
(Lead break)
(ENDING CHORUS)
As the train pulls in, I think of those two
Oh, how they made me feel much stronger
Now I can't wait to get to you
But I'm glad this ride home
Really was... a little bit longer

Just a little bit longer ...........
