Song Lyrics

Song Meaning
Verse 1
Dark highways and the country roads
Don't scare you like they did
The woods and winds, they'll welcome you
To the places you once hid
Verse 2
You grew up and you moved away
Across a foreign see
And what was left was what was kept
That's what you gave to me
Verse 0
[Chorus]
You thought you left it all behind
You thought you'd up and gone
When all you did was figure out
How to take the long way home
Verse 3
The southern rain was heavy
Almost heavy as your heart
A cavalcade of strangers came
To tear your world apart
Verse 4
The bells of old Saint Mary's
And now the cling of charcoal hill
And you took the old religion folk
I won't be home again
Verse 5
You thought you left it all behind
You thought you'd up and gone
When all you did was figure out
How to take the long way home
Verse 6
You thought you left it all behind
You thought you'd up and gone
When all you did was figure out
How to take the long way home
Verse 7
The long way home...
