Long Way From Home Lyrics - JD Clayton


[Verse 1]
I read the letter you sent this mornin'
I drank my coffee and imagined you here
The weather's good, but they say rain's comin'
Will you buy me a plane ticket out there?
'Cause I could use a timeout or two from this playground
Yeah, I don't even wanna hear another sound
But I can't just stop now

[Chorus]
And, Mama, I know I'm a long way from home
But this old dirt road keeps on goin'
And these dreams of mine just don't end
Yeah, Mama, I sure miss you, don't you cry
I'ma try and be there by suppertime
But I can't promise you that
Well, tonight I might be all alone
But I ain't on my own even though
I'm a long way from home
[Verse 2]
They said they like my songs but keep writin'
If I lost more weight, they might like what they see
I hope these rhymes and stories don't stop comin'
And maybe Dad was right when he said
It ain't what it's cracked up to be

[Chorus]
And, Mama, I know I'm a long way from home
But this old dirt road keeps on goin'
And these dreams of mine just don't end
Yeah, Mama, I sure miss you, don't you cry
I'ma try and be there by suppertime
But I can't promise you that
Well, tonight I might be all alone
But I ain't on my own even though
I'm a long way from home

[Bridge]
Well, they say it's a ten-year town
What have I got to prove?
I am playin' the clown
Runnin' from the rodeo bull
If I'd known it'd be this hard
I would've stayed home a little bit longer

[Chorus]
And, Mama, I know I'm a long way from home
But this old dirt road keeps on goin'
And these dreams of mine just don't end
Yeah, Mama, I sure miss you, don't you cry
I'ma try and be there by suppertime
But I can't promise you that
Well, tonight I might be all alone
But I ain't on my own even though
I'm a long way from home

[Outro]
Yes, ma'am
