lyrics

All The Long Way

Fate can show kindness
When she’s dealing out heat
She stitches our lifelines
Bitter and sweet

Now all of our horses
And all of our men
Can’t put together
The things that we bent
No, my son
Can’t put together
The things that we bent

All the way
All the long way
Take my hand
and hold on
All the way
We’ll find peace
where your brother has gone

Hope is a potion
But it’s not hard to get
No silver-tongued salesman
Has bottled it yet

Now all of our horses
And all of our men
Can’t put together
The things that we bent

All the way
All the long way
Take my hand
and hold on
All the way
We’ll find peace
where your sister has gone

All the way
We’ll find peace
where your mother has gone
