Wait So Long lyrics

 




I thought it was my duty as an honest man
Raving about my country, doing what I can
Luxury I had inside, I suppose it was just a stand (?)

She walked me down to the end of the road
She laughed till she cried as she turned to go
She said Ill think of you and your feeling every night

The vultures sing: whyd ya wanna wait so long
If youre gone this long, well ya gotta know hes long gone
Youve been building up your fences and memorized dances
Just so youre still strong
Whyd ya wanna wait so long

It seems Ive been offered for a life or two (?)
Two things now tell me what I gotta do
Ive got my old mans eyes and a dusty old picture of you

I dont know how long Ive been shouldering my head stone
One more hill and Ill be coming on home
I can feel ya down in the marrow of my bones

And the vultures sing: whyd ya wanna wait so long
If youre gone this long, well you gotta know hes long gone
You been up building up your fences and memorized dances
Just so your still strong
Whyd you wanna wait so long

Well Ive been jumping over fences
And running through fresh cut fields of lavender
One more hill and Ill be coming on home
One more hill and Ill be coming on home
Baby please hurry home

Whyd ya wanna wait so long
If youre gone this long, well you gotta know hes long gone
You been up building up your fences and memorized dances
Just so youre still strong

I hope I know why ya wanna wait so long
