Long Time Comin'
written by John Hiatt

Friend of mine said a long time comin', been a long time gone
Stood right here, whispered in my ear, all the love gone wrong
I've been living my life like a howlin' wind and I can't put out this flame
Friend of mine said a long time comin', comin' back again

All this time the wheels been turnin', turnin' like a screw
Down some roads of silver and gold but I could never find you
Been livin' my life like a lonesome whistle blowin', now I can't turn back
Friend of mine said a long time comin', comin' down the track

And if I told it true, all these memories of you, well that's why I play the game
Friend of mine said a long time comin', like it never came

I've sang these songs a thousand times, ever since I was young
It's a long time comin' and the drummer keeps drummin', your work is never done
I still see you there in that silver blue air and I never have moved on
Friend of mine said a long time comin', I'm just a long time gone
Friend of mine said a long time comin', I'm a long time gone
