Written for anyone who sacrificed everything to pursue a dream that never came to fruition.

Lyrics

A Long Way from Home
By Scott Jeffrey
Copyright 2003

There?s a thousand miles stretched out behind me.
There?s a thousand more till San Antoine.
I got your letter in my pocket to remind me
That you?ll be gone by the time that I get home.

I?m a long way from home
Out here on my own
On a long and lonesome highway
Feeling lost and all alone
Sittin? here on this Greyhound bus
I can?t get my mind off us
And these small towns just remind me
I?m a long long way from home.

I watched my dreams fade to gray in Nashville
Playing empty clubs and nameless bars.
Went flat broke near Golden Colorado
Spent a few cold nights just sleepin? neath the stars.

REPEAT CHORUS

(BRIDGE)

I know you?ve never understood this thing inside me.
That could drive a man to risk most anything.
But it?s not hard to understand the light that guides me.
It?s just anyone who?ll listen to me sing.

Wrote a song ?bout you from words I?d left unspoken
Pawned my guitar so I could buy the fare
I?m coming home to fix the things I?ve broken
I guess there?s just some things that words cannot repair

I?m a long way from home
Out here on my own
On a long and lonesome highway
Feeling lost and all alone
Sitting here on this greyhound bus
Can?t get my mind off us
All these small towns just remind me
I?m a long long way from home.
