Alan Jackson – Long Hard Road lyrics

It’s a long, hard road I’m traveling on

It 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 of my sweet mama calling

Telling me to change my ways

In my mind, I smell the dogwoods blooming

Takes me back to yesterday

Yeah, it’s a long, hard road I’m traveling on

It 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 I once was

Changed for good and sought the bad

I’ve wasted days and nights on love, but got none

I’ve traded happiness for sad

Yeah, it’s a long, hard road I’m traveling on

It 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 the mountain

Like tears have washed away my pain

Yeah, it’s a long, hard road I’m traveling on

It 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 a loved one dear to my heart dying

I’ve heard a newborn baby’s cry

I’ve walked the path of glory and of darkness

I’ve felt the guilt of a senseless life

Yeah, it’s a long, hard road I’m traveling on

It 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

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

Yeah, it’s a long, hard road I’m traveling on

It 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

Yeah, it’s a long, hard road I’m traveling on

It 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
