Many soldiers are far away from home for long periods of time. The longing for those simple familiar things in life such as the feel of your own bed, must be overwhelming. Getting back home sometimes is not the only struggle. Starting over, or picking up life where it was left becomes a battle for many.

Lyrics

LONG ROAD HOME
Chad Lee / Dess Fletcher

The smell of your mom’s home cookin
The feel of your of your baby’s lovin
That’s what keeps your wheels moving on
All the arm’s that are waiting for ya
And the chills when they finally wrap around ya
And the sweet sweet words….Welcome home

CHORUS:
All your family and friends come running
You can’t remember the last time when
You saw their face, shook their hands,
Heard the words “how you been”
Cause you’ve just been gone
On the LONG ROAD HOME

The feel of your bed with fresh linens
The sound of your choir singing
Amen. Yea that’s what keeps your wheels moving on
The taste of those simple sweet kisses
All the things that are taken for granted
Oh..It’s so good to be home

CHORUS:

BRIDGE:
Bomb shells and planes flying over
Proud to serve but so glad you’re getting older
Cause thru it all, thru the hell so many fell
And the rest they start over
On the LONG ROAD HOME
On the LONG ROAD HOME
Yea they all start over……
On the LONG ROAD HOME
