​Long Is The Time, Hard Is The Road

This song is by Chris Rea and appears on the compilation album The Blue Jukebox (2004).

Big old snake o' red tail lights
Lookin' for a drain
Pretty red, like diamond bright
Become your ball and chain

If you ever reach the other side,
It will never be this way
They tie you down with your own high hopes,
You better listen what I say

Long is the time, and hard is the road
Everybody lookin' for a place
To put down their heavy load

Fat cat screamin' up above
'Cause he don't get no second chance
He's passing down his reckless fear
He kick your chains and make you dance

Dance around his daydream
Till he gets to fly away
You find a dagger in your back
You better listen what I say

Long is the time, and hard is the road
Everybody lookin' for a place
To put down their heavy load

Oh, long is the time and hard is the road
Hard is the road

Oh, long is the time and hard is the road
Everybody lookin' for a place
To put down their heavy load

Long is the time, and hard is the road.
