Nelson, Willie - Have I Stayed Away Too Long? Lyrics

Have I stayed away too long
Have I stayed away too long
If I came home tonight
Would you still be my darling
Or have I stayed away too long

The love light that shone so strong
Sweet love light that shone so strong
If I came home tonight
Would that same light be shining
Or have I stayed away too long

I'm just outside of town
And I'll soon be at your door
But maybe I'd be wrong
To hurry there
I'd best keep out of town
And worry you no more
Maybe someone else
Has made you care

Have all of my dreams gone wrong
My beautiful dreams gone wrong
If I came home tonight w
Would you still be my darling
Or have I stayed away too long

If I came home tonight
Would you still be my darling
Or have I stayed away too long

    A good question. Yeah, Willie. The answer is already known by having to ask the question.

    Great version of a great song. Love everything Willie does. I have this song by a british duo from the late 50s,early 60s.Check out Miki and Griff singing a slightly more upbeat rendition of this great song. Thanks Marianne. Regards Frank
