38 Special - Long Time Gone Lyrics




Well I been gone a long time
The time has passed us by
And I know it won't be long 'till I get home
I see your smilin' face, well I just can't erase
All those good ol' happy days when we were 'lone.

Well I'm comin' through the mountains
On my way back home
I see that snow fallin' on that good old mountain ground
And I know it won't be long, I'm in your lovin' arms
We'll live together and things 'll be better for you
a' you and me, a' can't cha see?

Woman, I been a long time gone
To be a thousand miles from home
I know I've done you wrong
And I know it won't be long,
I'm in your lovin' arms
Woman, been a long, I been a long time gone.

When I hit that mountain road
I got five miles left to go.
I smell that good old mountain air and old and pine trees
And as she stood alone with a pretty white dress on,
I felt that good old mountain air blowin' up a breeze.

Woman, I been a long time gone
To be a thousand miles from home
I know I've done you wrong
And I know it won't be long,
I'm in your lovin' arms
Woman, been a long, I been a long time gone.

38 Special Long Time Gone Comments
  1. CobraKiller 1997

    Good song. Shame I have to dig through yt to find it. Somebody used to have the full album but I think yt pulled it cause it’s not there

  2. broncoremy

    Great song. There is some Skynyrd there, some Outlaws and the vocals remind me of the Eagles.

  3. Cassie J. Fox

    My favorite album by #38Special 1977 got that Skynyrd sound. #SouthernRock #Country #Blues #Rock all nicely mixed.
