Long Time Gone

Good boy turned hobo
Gets heart broken, scorns others,
Wanders forever.

Here's another song from the Witmark Demos, done in 1963. You can find it on volume 9 of the Bootleg Series.

1. Parents raised me right. I went wrong because I like rambling. "I'm a long time a-comin', ma, and I'll be a long time gone."
2. Tried to find work in west Texas. They said I was too young.
3. I joined the carnival.
4. I loved a young girl. She broke my heart.
5. I went hitchhiking and couldn't get a ride.
6. The me you see now isn't the me you saw before.
7. Beauty lies, youth rots. Whatever, I'm just out here wandering.
