long way to go home is not a bad song!

#37543 3 years, 3 months ago
Who do you think you are?
What do you mean when you put us all down
Walking round in circles
Your nose to the ground
You think you're saying something
Because you're making a sound

You say you've seen it all
You don't care to see no more
But you don't get up an go
until they throw you out the door

It's a long long long long way to go home
It's a long long long long way to go home
Any which way you are tempted to roam
It's a long long long long long long way
Way to go home

Who's it you remind me of
What do you do
when you do your own time
Did you run away
from the scene of your crime
I feel as though i know you
Could you spare me a dime

It's a lot less than prison
but it's more than a jail
I'd tell you all about it
but that's another tale

It's a long long long long way to go home
it's a long long long long way to go home
Any which way you are tempted to roam
It's a long long long long long long long long way
Way to go home

You say you've seen it all
You don't care to see no more
of the hungry, the homeless,
the sick and the poor

You say you've seen enough
to last you all your days
like the moon in high heaven
you're just going through a phase

It's a long long long long way to go home
it's a long long long long way to go home
Any which way you are tempted to roam
It's a long long long long long long long long way
Way to go home

Who do you want to be?
What do you need
to set your body free?
I don't mean to pry
this ain't no third degree
but looking at you baby
you remind myself of me

If there's anyway to tell you
Anyway, anyway to persuade
I'd really love to spare you
the mistakes I've made

It's a long long long long way to go home
It's a long long long long way to go home
Any which way you are tempted to go
It's a long long long long long long long long way
Way to go home

way to go home

the song placement might have been suspect but the song is solid.

vince's best performance of this song

Not bad?.....It's fucking wonderful. Not bad is not only an understatement, but not accurate to what i think you mean. So, I'm going to say i agree that its a wonderful song, cause i think thats what you mean by "its not bad"....its nowhere near bad at all?!

yes, it is a great song.my thread title might have down played it a bit. but i was quoting someone. i always enjoyed the song even amongst the moans and groans. i always enjoyed brothers and sisters at jgb shows too and the moans and groans then were ridiculously audible.

Not to steal your thread, but people complain about Brothers and Sisters?!?!?

Are you serious.!

Now I'm no religious guy. No way, shape or form. Don't mind those who are, as long as they don't go missionary on me. And I love me gospel tunes.

How the hell do those soulless bastards deny this?

well, maybe in 89 not so much, but in 94 and 95 warfeild folks had no problem expressing their disappointment. never seemed to bother Jerry he'd play for those that did enjoy it.

way to go home has recieved an unfair treatment ( as did vince himself ) the song recieved a merciless flogging in 93 and 94. It was played almost as much as samson and delila was back in 77
many heads just got sick of hearing it.
myself, I never minded the song too bad vince didn't get to contribute a few more.
maybe Furthur will start adding in some vince once in a while, a lot of heads would welcome it.

I don't think he sounds bad, but at certain parts john sounds like every ordinary guy at a coffee house. Him and myself are opposites .....my forte is singing and my guitar skills arent up to par. And johns guitar skills are his forte and his vocals maybe up to par for his game, but not for the challenging course Grateful Dead . Am i jealous he's in the band and not me...no, fate is something you gotta respect. If its my time then its time. I'm working on my guitar everyday to get my game up. I think Johns a really nice guy and I respect all the energy hes put into the dead and dark star orch. I do recall at Sunshine Daydream campground in terra alta WV that dark star orch had a tiff with the owner and as revenge emptied thier sewage system from thier tour bus down the long drive way, basically pouring thier shit and piss all over the property down into the concert grounds. Thats really not cool at all.
