LONG RIDE HOME
Patty Griffin


Long black limousine

Shiniest car I've ever seen

The back seat is nice and clean

She rides as quiet as a dream

Someone dug a hole six long feet in the ground

I said goodbye to you and I threw my roses down

Ain't nothing left at all in the end of being proud

With me riding in a race car, and you flying through the clouds


I've had some time to think about you

And watch the stone set like a stone

I've had some time to think about you

On the long ride home


One day I took your tiny hand

Put your finger in the wedding band

Your daddy gave a piece of land

We laid ourselves the best of plans

Forty years go by with someone laying in your bed

Forty years of things you wish you'd never said

How hard would it have been to say some kinder words instead

I wonder as I stare up at the sky turning red


I've had some time to think about you

And watch the stone set like a stone

I've had some time to think about you

On the long ride home


Headlights staring at the driveway

The house is dark as it can be

I go inside and all is silent

It seems as empty as the inside of me


I've had some time to think about you

And watch the stone set like a stone

I've had some time to think about you

On the long, on the long

Oh the long, on the long

On the long ride home
