    Lyrics

    Daddy sits on the front porch swingin'
    Lookin' out on a vacant field
    Used to be filled with burly N tobacco
    Now he knows it never will

    Brother found work in Indiana
    Sister's a nurse at the old folks home
    Momma's still cooking too much for supper
    And me, I've been a longtime gone

    Been a longtime gone
    No I ain't hoed a row since I don't know when
    Longtime gone
    And I ain't coming back again

    Delia plays that ol' church piano
    Sittin out on her daddy's farm
    She always thought that we'd be together
    Lord I never meant to do her harm

    Said she could hear me singin' in the choir
    Me, I heard of another song
    I caught wind and hit the road runnin'
    And lord I been a long time gone

    Been a longtime gone
    Lord I ain't had a prayer since I don't know when
    Longtime gone
    And it ain't coming back again

    Now me I went to Nashville
    Tryin' to be the big deal
    Playin' down on broadway
    Gettin' there the hard way
    Livin' from a tip jar
    Sleepin' in my car
    Hockin' my guitar
    Yeah I'm going be a star

    Now me and Delia sing every sunday
    Watchin' the children and the garden grow
    Listen to the radio to hear what's cookin'
    But the music ain't got no soul

    Now they sound tired but they don't sound Haggard
    They got money but they don't have Cash
    They got junior but they don't have Hank
    I think, I think, I think... the rest is...

    Longtime gone
    No I ain't hit the roof since I don't know when
    Longtime gone
    And it ain't coming back I said
    A longtime gone
    No I ain't honked a horn since I don't know when
    Longtime gone
    And it ain't coming back again

    I said a longtime longtime longtime gone
    Oh it's been a longtime
    Longtime longtime longtime gone
    Oh it's been a long time gone

    Longtime, longtime, longtime gone
    Yeah Yeah
