Take The Long Way Home (Schneider John)

Take the long way home She won't wait up tonight I can take the long way home And there won't be any fights Tonight I can stay out late with the boys Play cards and come in at dawn Since she left me I've got a choice I can take the long way home No pictures on the wall No carpet on the floor No one ever calls No one knocks on my door It's just a place where I sleep at night But I can't sleep alone I think I'll stop off and have a bite And take the long way home What makes a house a home Is sometimes hard to say You never know all the riches you own 'Til someone takes them away The night is clear and my work is through It's a shame to be alone I think I'll go have a beer or two I'll take the long way home I'll just take the long way home
