Been Away too Long

Well I said it’d be a few weeks
And now four months are almost gone
And the picture in my backpack is getting worn
The pay phones and the rest stops
Little magnets little stores
Every stitch of clothing that I own is torn

I’ve been away too long

Well the cupboards getting empty
No the bill’s ain’t getting paid
And my love is growing restless once again
The grass is almost waist deep
And lord she gets afraid
Will I ever see this gypsy once again?

I’ve been away too long…

I’ll run up to my front step
And I’ll bang the door on down
And she’ll open up and see it’s real this time
And the dogs will come to greet me
And my bags will hit the ground
And she’ll look me in the eyes and shout the lines…

You’ve been away too long
