The Long-Journey Blues

by Thomas K. Hunt

I’m on my journey
I’m on my journey home
Said I’m on my journey
On my journey home
And I’ve been on my journey
Since that first day that I roamed

I’ve been gone too long
So many miles behind me now
I’ve been gone way too long
So many miles behind me now
But I’ll find the end of my journey
I know I’ll find it home somehow

I’m tired of the highway
It’s time I settled down
I’m so tired of the highway
I need to settle down
I’m still on my journey
And only dream of my hometown

I’m on my journey
I’m on my journey back home
Said I’m on my journey
On my journey home
I’ve been on my journey
Since that first day that I roamed

It’s been an uphill struggle
It was downhill for so long
It’s now an uphill battle
It’s been way downhill and almost gone
I’m fighting my way back home
I’ve been digging out too damn long

Life’s been in the way
The days got shorter through the years
Life has gotten in the way
Days are shorter in our autumn years
But I’m still on my journey
Behind the wheel, keeping it smooth
Every time I steer

I’m on my journey
I’m on my journey home
Said I’m on my life’s journey
It’s been a long journey home
And I’m still on my journey
Since that first day that I roamed

I’ve got the long-journey blues
I’ve been traveling way too long
I’ve got those long-journey blues
I’ve been on the roadway way too long
And I’ve had the long-journey blues
Since that first day, I was gone
