I been gone too long
Too long gone, too long
I been travelin' hard
I just can't get back home
Oh, it's hard to believe
I done all that much wrong

I wanna find me a seven
Sevens ain't so bad
Seven's about the best friend
This poor boy ever had
Oh, you get you a seven
One and six don't seem so sad

I ain't bein' alone
Bein' alone too long
I'm sick of singin' this same
Ol' lonesome song
I'm gonna find me a seven and darlin'
I'm comin' home

It's lonesome down
Along this ol' highway
Darlin', I ain't stayin' here
I don't intend to stay
You may not want me
I'm comin' home anyway

When the sun comes creepin'
Over the mountain side
I at least lay down
And tell myself I tried
I ain't like somebody gonna sit
In no ditch and cry

I been gone too long
Too long gone, too long
Travelin' hard
I just can't get back home
It's hard to believe
I done all that much wrong

Too long gone
Too long gone, too long
Travelin' hard
I just can't get back home
Yeah, it's hard to believe
I done all that much wrong

Oh, it's hard to believe
I done all that much wrong
