Kenny Wayne Shepherd - Show Me The Way Back Home Lyrics




I met a rag doll, with lovely eyes
Lookin so lost, and cast aside
Beggin spare change, beneath the shadows of a sunset street light

I dug down deep, into my pocket
A couple dollars, was all that I had.
She reached out like, it was treasure.
She looked so far away, when she said….

She said,
Show me the way back home
Cuz I've been out there runnin
For way too long
And all that I've learned
And just when you think, you've chased down every last mile.
There's always another one, I need someone
To show me the way back home.

So many lost souls, along the line
It wasn't so long, that soul was mine.
Feeling forsaken, down on my knees
Needing some mercy, asking please

Show me the way back home
Cuz I've been out there runnin
For way too long
And all that I've learned
And just when you think, you've chased down every last mile.
There's always another one, I need someone
To show me the way back home.

Oh yeah…

And all that I've learned
And just when you think, you've chased down every last mile.
There's always another one, I need someone
Yeah, yeah, I need someone
To show me the way back home.

So many lost souls, along the line
It wasn't so long, that soul was mine.

  1. RON JEPPERSON

    Love this Song ! KWS has alot of Eric Clapton Style in his Music . Hope he keeps bordering Rock/Blues Music not just Blues like EC tended to do after the Mid 90's where every CD was Blues instead CD's Like Behind the Sun. Keep Rockin KWS !!!!

  2. Fox’s PurpleLolli

    9 people are the most clueless individuals to walk the planet
    KWS is epic

  3. Fing Twice

    I was lucky enought to see this dude live in a little dancehall in prague, czech republic. An amazing evening. And I remember they played this song. Just as it is on this record. Great musicians!

  4. Stuart Glynn

    great to hear again

  5. Stuart Glynn

    gave me the GOOSE BUMPS very well put together

  6. 79bonscott

    Kenny Wayne couldn't have picked a better singer! Noah Hunt has a Blue eyed soul indeed it's chilling and wonderful his voice combined with Kenny's superior ax skills!

  7. Swift River

    beautiful song...........tugs on the heart.. at least this one

  8. spanky094341

    my father met him when he was like 13 or 14 in a bar also, around here in central new york in the 90's. said he was awesome then!

  9. Grahame Bennett

    i have never met him but what a fantastic band

  10. Ronaldo Cid

    Great voice...

    Iron Butcher

    You're right. Of course it's only my own opinion but without Noah Hunt Kenny would only be half the success.

  11. Mota

    you were saying you met him when he was 15 in like 96. im clearly saying he was 19 in 96. unless you met him in 92? your the one who cant get the facts straight. I dont care if you met him or not just get them right

  12. mmsun44

    I said "like" 96 but thanks for taking the time to make such a trivial comment and give me a thumbs down. I still have his autograph - he signed my copy of Family Style by the Vaughn brothers if you'd like to see it. He smiled when he signed it and I'll never forget that even if I didn't get the precise year.

  13. Mota

    in 96 he was 19.. thumbs down on your comment

  14. Floyd Gurney

    Noah n Kenny Perfect Match and both class acts ~

  15. Irisviel Von Einzbern

    I love this song! Kenny Wayne Shepherd is quite a talent

  16. buddahead

    very nice

  17. pricheal

    Grammy Winner!

  18. mmsun44

    I met him in a bar when he was 15 touring for the first time back in like 96 and he tore that stage to pieces. Been a huge fan ever since! So glad he's still at it and Noah is at the mic, they are an excellent combination.

  19. John West

    Had to listen to this a few times in a row.. Great song!

  20. MrJaredduncan

    You're right, album is great. Been hooked on KWS since the first time I seen him at the vogue in, well around 97 I think.

  21. paintvalleymusic

    This song rocks. The entire album is amazing. My new favorite.

  22. John Beckham

    Kenny Wayne Shepherd has finally matured into an excellent Rock Blues alternative!
