I've come a long, long, long, long way, oh yes, I did
Since I found a love, since I found a love
But wait a minute, there's one more thing

It was so hard, hard, yeah, oh yeah
But I've come a long, such a long, long way
Let me tell y'all by the stars above
Let me say it one more time, by the stars above

I used to look here and there, here, there, everywhere
One day that woman walked into my life, oh yeah
She said, "Don't worry, baby, I'll make everything all right"
She went on and she smoothed out all the rough roads, uh huh

With lots of lovin' and secure, oh yes, she did
And she gave me somethin' to live for
I can tell the world, yeah
(By the stars above)

I've come a long
(Long)
Long way
(Long way)
Ah, sometime I'm gonna cry tears of water
That came runnin' out, oh yeah
