  • It's a long way to nowhere
    And I'm leaving very soon
    On the way we pass so close
    To the back side of the moon
    Hey join the traveler if you got nowhere to go
    Hang your head and take my hand
    It's the only road I know
    Oh, lonely is the word, yeah yeah yeah

    I've been higher than stardust
    I've been seen upon the sun
    I used to count in millions then
    But now I only count in one
    Come on, join the traveler
    If you got nowhere to go
    Hang your head and take my hand
    It's the only road I know
    Yeah, lonely is the word
    Got to be the saddest song I ever heard

    Yeah, lonely is the name
    Maybe life's a losing game Writer/s: MICHAEL BUTLER, RONNIE DIO, TONY IOMMI, WILLIAM WARD
