"Gone Too Long" as written by and Townes Van Zandt....
I been gone too long
Too long gone, too long
I been travelin' hard
I just can't get back home
It's hard to believe I done all that much wrong

I want to find me a seven
Sevens ain't so bad
Seven's about the best friend
This poor boy ever had
You get you a seven
One and six don't seem so sad

I ain't bein' alone
Bein' alone too long
I'm sick of singin' this same ol' lonesome song
I'm gonna find me a seven and darlin'
I'm comin' home

It's lonesome down along this ol' highway
Darlin' I ain't stayin' here
I don't intend to stay
You may not want me I'm comin' home anyway

When the sun comes creepin'
Over the mountain side
I at least lay down and tell myself I tried
I ain't like somebody gonna sit
In no ditch and cry

I been gone too long
Too long gone, too long
Travelin' hard I just can't get back home
It's hard to believe I done all that much wrong

Too long gone
Too long gone, too long
Travelin' hard, I just can't get back home
It's hard to believe I done all that much wrong
It's hard to believe I done all that much wrong
