Last night I stood at your doorstep
Trying to figure out what went wrong
You slipped something into my palm and you were gone

It was the same deep green of summer
'Bove me the same night sky was glowin'
In the distance I could see the town where I was born

It's gonna be a long walk home
Hey pretty darling, don't wait up for me
Gonna be a long walk home
Hey pretty darling, don't wait up for me
Gonna be a long walk home

I walked past Sal's grocery
Joe's barber shop on South Street
I looked into the faces
They were all rank strangers to me
Veteran's Hall up upon the hill
Stood dark and alone
Frankie's diner was shuttered and boarded
With a sign that just said "gone"

It's gonna be a long walk home
Hey pretty darling, don't wait up for me
Gonna be a long walk home
Hey pretty darling, don't wait up for me
Gonna be a long walk home

My Pa said "Son, we're lucky,
This town is a beautiful place to be born.
It just wraps its arms around you,
Nobody crowds you, nobody goes it alone"

"You see that flag down at the courthouse?
It means certain things are set in stone.
Who we are, what we'll do and what we won't"

Well it's gonna be a long walk home
Hey pretty darling, don't wait up for me
Gonna be a long walk home
Hey pretty darling, don't wait up for me
Gonna be a long walk home

Here everybody has a neighbor
Everybody has a friend
Everybody has a reason to begin again

[Harmonica bridge]

Now the water's rising 'round the corner
There's a fire burning out of control
There's a hurricane on Main Street
And I've got murder in my soul

Yeah well when the party's over
And the cheering is all gone
Will you know me, will I know you
Will I know you

'Cause it's gonna be a long walk home
Hey pretty darling, don't wait up for me
Gonna be a long walk home
Hey pretty darling, don't wait up for me
Gonna be a long walk home
Hey pretty darling, don't wait up for me
Gonna be a long walk home
Hey pretty darling, don't wait up for me
Gonna be a long walk home
Hey pretty darling, don't wait up for me
Gonna be a long walk home
Hey pretty darling, don't wait up for me
It's gonna be a long walk home

Hey now darling, it's gonna be a long walk home
Yeah it's gonna be a long walk home
