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
