​Taking The Long Road Home

This song is by Kevin Johnson and appears on the album Rock And Roll I Gave You The Best Years Of My Life (1974) and on the album Greatest Hits (1980).

When I was a young boy,
Had big intentions,
I thought I could be just about anything you'd care to mention,
I was a young boy,
Hard on the heels of success,
I was a wide-eyed, unsatisfied young fool,
I have to confess,
But I guess I did all right for a while,

Burning the midnight oil,
Thinking my life might spoil,
If I didn't bring myself up to a steady boil,
I was a young boy, really on the road to somewhere,
But now I'm a man who doesn't really give a damn if I never get there.

Takin' the long road home,
I'm takin' the long road home,
Takin' the time to find a way around the life I've known,
Takin' the wrong road home,
Oh, that's where I'm gonna be,
And I tell you pretty women,
I tell you good times,
From now on you're gonna find you'll see a whole lot more of me.

Takin' the long road home,
Takin' the long road home,
Takin' the time to find a way around the life I've known,
Takin' the wrong road home,
Oh, that's where I'm gonna be,
And I tell you pretty women,
I tell you good times,
From now on you're gonna find you'll see a whole lot more of me.
