Lyrics

Hello old friend
I know I been a long time from home
And I know we don't talk too much
On the telephone

But now it's snowin' to beat the band
It's beatin' us pretty good
I kinda got to missin' our old neighborhood

Is the grass there still as green?
Is there anybody, you think you might have seen
Who'd still remember me?
I been gone so long
I been gone so long

You and me would go ridin'
Most every Friday night
Smilin' at the girls
And cussin' at the red lights

Well you turned out just fine
But I never could quite walk that line
I got out alive,
But I'm still tryin' to get it right

I was there the night
You threw that boy into the lake
Poor kid very nearly died
For some dumb kid mistake

I showed up with your bail
He lived to tell the tale
And we all learned a lot
About life and love that night

Well is the grass there still as green?
Is there anybody, you think you might have seen
Who'd still remember me?
I been gone so long
I been gone so long

So how you like your new job?
How's the wife and family?
Tell 'em I'll be by sometime
And kiss them kids for me

Yeah, I'm still out on the road
But lately I've been feeling old
No man, it ain't nothin'
Like we thought it'd be

I know it's getting late there
Guess I'll let you go
It's sure been nice
Hearin' your voice on the telephone

I'm sorry if I've made you blue
But you know I miss you, too
I promise sometime, down the line
That I'll be comin' home

If the grass there is still as green
And if there's anybody, you think you might have seen
Who'd still remember me
I been gone so long

Yeah, is the grass there still as green?
Is there anybody, you think you might have seen
Who'd still remember me?
I been gone so long
You think they'd remember me?
I been gone so long
I been gone so long
