Awesome old timey jam by Scrapomatic from Alligator Love Cry. 

1..2..1-2-3-4

  G
I Let Out the Day for Better Parts

  C
I Left My Home State Where the Mississippi Starts
      D
I Was Looking for a Friend and a Change of Heart
                            G
Now I'm Taking the Long Way Home


    G    
I'd Never Seen Atlantic Waves
    C
The Road Ahead was Clear and Paved
      D    
I was Thinking "Hell, I've Got it Made"
                            G
Now I'm Taking the Long Way Home


Chorus:
    C                D
The Long Way Home is Some Kind of Lonesome
Em            C  
Misty Alabama Drive
    C                D                    C       G
The Long Way Home is How I Get to Feelin' Tonight

Verse II (same chords)

Manhattan's Sinking in the Hudson Bay
If It's a Wonderful Town I Aint Seen it Yet
And I'm Sick of All the Shit Head(?) Death Ray Looks
From People I Never Met

Well the Sun Went Out On My Career Path
Got a Gray Hound Ticket and I'm Showin' Ass
The Interstate Thru Way Just Went Passed
Now I'm Takin' the Long Way Home

Chorus II (same as the first)

You Do Just What You Please

I Forget Em' and I Don't Think Twice
        D
Cause I Know What Happened to Me...


Verse III

New Orlean's Won't Take Me, Memphis Can
I Walk Into Town Like Any Ordinary Man
And If I Can't Hold My Liquor on the Witness Stand
I'll Be Taking the Long Way Home

Chorus III (same accept you play the last lines twice and end on a G)

And that's the song.
