Empty towns, littering the countryside
With no purpose being there
On an endless road
From gig to county fair
With a dozen people waiting for you
And the light in the eyes of the opening act leading there
Who knows the road is waiting for him

So I took him aside
Let my true feelings rise
And found out more about him
I said "Son, I've travelled
All over this place
Had money thrown at me
Late night tits in my face
But it all has it's time
And it all has its place
And when you feel like it's the end of the run
You've got to go home"

I'm not saying that it cannot be done
I'm not saying that it shouldn't be fun
But when it feels like it's the end of the run
You've got to go home

I'm talking about Phil Jackson
Sonny Bono, Fats Domino
Ma Rainey had her ass knocked down
All over that long hard road
Frank Sinatra, Charlie Daniels
Dylan wrote his personal 61
The highway's calling me
And it's saying
It's time to go home

I'm not saying that it cannot be done
I'm not saying that it shouldn't be done
I ain't saying that it won't be fun
But when it feels like it's the end of the run
You've got to go home

Because I've traveled
All over the long hard road
Traveled all down
The long hard road
I'm finished with my life
On the long hard road
So I'm leaving behind
The long hard road
