"Long, Long Time" as written by Jimmie Dale Gilmore and David Allen Hammond....
Well I left my home looking for green grass
Headed for Pine Ridge and points beyond
But on the road I met an impasse
Every direction looked just like home

There is a road, there is a mountain.
With many stops along the way
How many Days? I am not counting
It's been a long, long time you've been away

Well a flower grows in a deep dark canyon
Where the river wanders to leave the trail
And the night bird searches for her companion
Who sings of sunlight behind the veil.

Everyone knows what makes the dove sing
And now I know you've gone to stay
How many nights? I am not counting
It's been a long, long time you've been away

Now I walk alone down streets of silver
In empty hollows wet with the dew
In the sudden stillness of a summer morning
In all my dreams I walk with you

There is a rose there is a fountain
And I have found that lost highway
How many years? I have stopped counting
It's been a long, long time I've been away
It's been a long, long time I've been away
