Josie works the counter at the downtown five and dime
Her mama keeps the baby and grandpa rambles on

It's a long night sleeping alone
It's a long, long way home
Josie spends the evening with the people in the pages
Or sometimes it's the TV or she'll try to write a letter

It's a long night sleeping alone
It's a long, long way home
And I stare at the gray walls before me
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
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
And I wish they would let me go home
And I wish they would let me go home
