Lyrics of Long Way from Home

I would do anything I could to be near you,
Walk all night in the pouring rain
To be at your side
My heart is aching for love,
My body's shaking with desire
Believe me, baby, when I say
I will drink you dry

I would do anything to be near you,
You're everything any man could claim
I see your face in the night,
I hear you calling my name

But, it's a long long way from home,
I'm just trying to get a message to you,
It's a long long way from home,
An' I don't know what I'm gonna do

I'd been looking for love for so long when I found you,
Too many years I walked alone
When I touch you inside I feel you burning me with fire,
Believe me baby when I say
I will feed the flame

I would do anything to be near you,
Walk all night in the pouring rain
I see your face in the night,
I hear you calling my name

But, it's a long long way from home,
I'm just trying to get a message to you,
It's a long long way from home,
An' I don't know what I'm gonna do

I would do anything to be near you,
You're everything any man could claim
I see your face in the night,
I hear you calling my name

But, it's a long long way from home,
I'm just trying to get a message to you,
It's a long long way from home,
An' I don't know what I'm gonna do

I would do anything I could to be near you,
Check in on any night time flight, I don't mind
My heart is aching for love,
My body's shaking with desire
Believe me baby when I say
I will drink you dry

I would do anything to be near you,
Walk all night in the pouring rain
I see your face in the night,
I hear you calling my name

But, it's a long long way from home,
I'm just trying to get a message to you,
It's a long long way from home,
An' I don't know what I'm gonna do

It's a long long way from home,
I'm just trying to get a message to you,
It's a long long way from home,
An' I don't know what I'm gonna do,
It's a long long way from home


Comments




'Long Way from Home' is a 1979 single by British hard rock band Whitesnake. The song was written by lead singer, David Coverdale, and 'Walking in the Shadow of the Blues' is the B-side. The song was the first single from their 'Lovehunter' album, and was the lead off track. Due to poor promotion, the single flopped.

In the chorus, the line 'Long Long Way From Home' is used, with the word 'Long' used twice, however the song is simply titled 'Long Way From Home.' This was likely done to avoid confusion with Foreigner's 1977 hit, Long Long Way From Home.

The B-Side of the single was Walking in the Shadow of the Blues, which went onto become a far more popular song than Long Way from Home, making this a rare instance of a song released as a B-Side becoming more popular than it A-Side counterpart.

The song reached #55 on the UK Singles Chart in 1979.
