Way to Go Home

Lyrics: Robert Hunter
Music: Vince Welnick, Bob Bralove

Who do you think you are?
What do you mean when you put us all down
Walking round in circles
Your nose to the ground
You think you're saying something
Because you're making a sound

You say you've seen it all
You don't care to see no more
But you don't get up an go
until they throw you out the door

It's a long long long long way to go home
It's a long long long long way to go home
Any which way you are tempted to roam
It's a long long long long long long way
Way to go home

Who's it you remind me of
What do you do
when you do your own time
Did you run away
from the scene of your crime
I feel as though i know you
Could you spare me a dime

It's a lot less than prison
but it's more than a jail
I'd tell you all about it
but that's another tale

It's a long long long long way to go home
it's a long long long long way to go home
Any which way you are tempted to roam
It's a long long long long long long long long way
Way to go home

You say you've seen it all
You don't care to see no more
of the hungry, the homeless,
the sick and the poor

You say you've seen enough
to last you all your days
like the moon in high heaven
you're just going through a phase

It's a long long long long way to go home
it's a long long long long way to go home
Any which way you are tempted to roam
It's a long long long long long long long long way
Way to go home

Who do you want to be?
What do you need
to set your body free?
I don't mean to pry
this ain't no third degree
but looking at you baby
you remind myself of me

If there's anyway to tell you
Anyway, anyway to persuade
I'd really love to spare you
the mistakes I've made

It's a long long long long way to go home
It's a long long long long way to go home
Any which way you are tempted to go
It's a long long long long long long long long way
Way to go home
