​Long Way To Go

This song is by Mark Chesnutt and appears on the album Rollin' With The Flow (2008).

Well, I met old Wailin back in '79
When I was in my teens
When I told him what was on my mind
He said son you don't wanna feel like me

There's a lot 'bout my life that you don't know
And boy it sure ain't good
The big wheels will drive you crazy
And the highway will make you do things you never would

When you're living in the spotlight
It's another world every night
It's a different town everyday
You pay your dues if you're gonna play

The only thing that makes it worthwhile
Is a big crowd going wild
But you gotta long way to go
You gotta long, long way to go

But I've had this in my blood since the day
I held a guitar in my hand
And it wasn't long till Baumann was the home
Of another cowboy band

And too cold at home put me on the road
And I know exactly how he felt
Back then how was I to know
That the hands of fate for me were already dealt

Now I'm living in the spotlight
It's another town every night
It's a different world everyday
You pay your dues if you're gonna play

The only thing that makes it worthwhile
Is a big crowd going wild
But I've gotta long way to go
I gotta long, long way to go
A long, long way to go
