A Long Time Coming (A Long Time Gone)

We were born to a great country that fights day to day.
We’ve got learn that we are better
When we help each other with a strong, steady hand.
The wind is blowing
And a change is coming to this land.
Good things are coming our way.
You know, it’s been a long time coming
And our worries will be a long time gone.

I’ve seen times get hard
When all you have is time to punch your card.
You can get lost in the crowd
And you wonder if it is time to move on,
Until you say, “It’s been a long time coming
And I’ll be a long time gone.”

I’ve seen the farmer tend to his crops
As he looks to avoid a loss.
Still has to put food on the table.
As he harvests his cucumbers and peppers,
Things are looking a little better.
He’s hoping those hard, hard times
That were a long time coming
Will be a long time gone.

At a home, the lights are dimmed;
They used to be bright.
Inside is a love that just isn’t right.
She made a promise – a vow
She won’t let his anger beat her down.
She’s leaving and taking off her lover’s crown.
She’s a long time leaving
But she’ll be a long time gone.

I have seen troubles,
Seen a fellow man down on his knees
Questioning what he believes.
But our flag still holds true to freedom
And our spirit will wash away the gloom.
Good times are coming soon;
It’s been a long time coming
And our worries will be a long time gone.
