Josie works the counter at the downtown five and dime
Anything at all to help her pass the time
Her mama keeps the baby and grandpa rambles on
About the good times playing in his mind

It's a hard life living when you're lonely
It's a long night sleeping alone
It's a hard time waiting for tomorrow
It's a long, long way home

Josie spends the evening with the people in the pages
Of the paperback she picked up in the store
Or sometimes it's the TV or she'll try to write a letter
But they don't come too often anymore

It's a hard life living when you're lonely
It's a long night sleeping alone
It's a hard time waiting for tomorrow
It's a long, long way home

And I stare at the gray walls before me
And I see her face in the stone
And I try to imagine our baby
And I wish they would let me go home
And I wish they would let me go home
And I wish they would let me go home

It's a hard life living when you're lonely
And I wish they would let me go home
It's a long night sleeping alone
And I wish they would let me go home
It's a hard time waiting for tomorrow
And I wish they would let me go home
It's a long, long way home
And I wish they would let me go home
It's a long, long way home
And I wish they would let me go home
Bring me and the other boys home
And I wish they would let me go home
Bring me and the other boys home
And I wish they would let me go home
Bring me and the other boys home
