Lyrics: Been On The Road So Long

Back

I’ve been on the road, so long
I’ve been tired and broke, so long
I’ve been to the south where the winds they are warm
Travelling the road of no return, so long

I’ve seen what is war, so long
The ruin and the scars, so long
The mansions of mud, the wounds and the blood
And I’ve seen the dying of all that is good, so long.

This world’s in a shroud, so long
Of a mushrooming cloud, so long
The lies and the greed of the leaders of men
Those cheats who would take us to war again, so long.

Yet hope lives in me, so long
For it’s love that I see, so long
The courage and strength of a young man’s smile
The faith that’s in a little child, so long

And I’ve been on the road, so long
I’ve been tired and broke, so long
I’ve been to the south where the winds they were warm
Travelling the road of no return, so long
