  • Lyrics: Long gone home why did you stray on me I'm as sad and alone as the whole human scene I was drivin' on a line I was hopin' for a friend to find But my memories fell behind A hole in the wall I was ridin' on a train I was sleepin' to the sound of rain When I woke up with the same Feelin' of fall, and no one at all Long gone home why did you stray on me I was runnin' for the door Where my old love used to lie on the floor But my head fell just before I made it at all And lord knows I was true But now I've lost you too And I can't go to bed now without missing home And feeling alone Long gone home why did you stray on me I'm as sad and alone as the whole human scene I'm as sad and alone as the whole human scene I'm as sad and alone as the whole human scene
