Josie works the counter at the downtown five and dime,
anything at all to help her pass the time.
Her mama keeps the baby and grandpa rambles on
about the good times playing in his mind.
It's a hard life living when you're lonely,
it's a long night sleeping alone.
It's a hard time waiting for tomorrow,
it's a long, long way home.
Josie spends the evening with the people in the pages
of the paperback she picked up at the store.
Or sometimes it's the TV, or she'll try to write a letter,
oh, they don't come too often anymore.
I stare at the grey walls before me,
I see her face in the stone.
I try to imagine our baby,
I wish they would let me go home.
It's a long night sleeping alone.
It's a long, long way home.
Bringing me and the other boys home,
Bring me and the other boys home.
