  • It's a long, hard road I'm traveling on
    Seems forever I've been gone
    Yeah, it's a long hard road I'm traveling on
    Lord I need to find my way back home

    I hear the voice my sweet momma called me
    Telling me to change my ways
    In my mind, I smell the dogwood blooming
    Takes me back to yesterday

    It's a long, hard road I'm traveling on
    Seems forever I've been gone
    Yeah, it's a long hard road I'm traveling on
    Lord I need to find my way back home

    I left behind the person that I once was
    I changed for good and some for bad
    I've wasted days and nights on love forgotten
    I've traded happiness for sad

    It's a long, hard road I'm traveling on
    Seems forever I've been gone
    Yeah, it's a long hard road I'm traveling on
    Lord I need to find my way back home

    I've felt the hurt of a broken heart inside me
    I've felt the joy of love unchained
    I've seen the rain wash away a mountain
    Like tears have washed away my pain

    It's a long, hard road I'm traveling on
    Seems forever I've been gone
    Yeah, it's a long hard road I'm traveling on
    Lord I need to find my way back home

    I've watched some loved ones dear to my heart dying
    I've heard a newborn baby's cry
    I've walked a path of glory and of darkness
    I've felt the guilt of a senseless life

    It's a long, hard road I'm traveling on
    Seems forever I've been gone
    Yeah, it's a long hard road I'm traveling on
    Lord I need to find my way back home

    Drank to forget and I've drank to remember
    And I've drank for love and I've drank for hate
    I've danced alone with a full moon up above me
    Lighting the way to heaven's gate

    It's a long, hard road I'm traveling on
    Seems forever I've been gone
    Yeah, it's a long hard road I'm traveling on
    Lord I need to find my way back home

    I've felt the love of Jesus shining on me
    I've felt the devil's wicked ways
    Prayed for forgiveness, prayed for redemption
    Prayed just to make it through the day

    It's a long, hard road I'm traveling on
    Seems forever I've been gone
    Yeah, it's a long hard road I'm traveling on
    Lord I need to find my way back home Writer/s: ALAN JACKSON
