The Long Way Home Lyrics:

Original songwriter: Johnstone When my brother Pat went to court on Mary Dempsey we didn't know how he'd go

As sure he never made his date 'cos he was over two weeks late

So I guess his watch was running kind of slow

Now Mary soon told the neighbours that something ain't right

We were all sent to search night and day

Sure we tried every part of town but no sign of Pat MacGowan

Returned upon the doorstep with this to say

I took the wrong road out to Dundalk

Missed a turnin at Dungarvan

Ended up in Cork went from Galway

Dublin and on to New York

Oh I guess I took the long way home

Now old father John went to sounding all the church bells he couldn't miss all the fun

Though he never had a smile sure he was laughing all the while

When we told him 'bout the things that Pat had done

And there was no tellin Mary t'was all a mistake

For she had no sense of humour that day

And though she didn't mind the craic

She swore she'd never take him back

After landing on her doorstep with this to say

I took the wrong road out to Dundalk

Missed a turnin at Dungarvan

Ended up in Cork went from Galway

Dublin and on to New York

So I guess I took the long way home

Hey

Wait a moment

There's always somewhere to go

Oh, yes there is

Wait a moment then move off kind of slow

When my brother Pat went to court on Mary Dempsey he didn't think for he'd start

For now another pub in town sure there's talks of Pat MacGowan

And the road he took to winnin' Mary's heart

Now Mary don't take it lightly for letting her down

She's not one to sulk every day

So when the Ceile came around

Sure she went with Pat MacGowan

Having turned upon his doorstep

With this to say

I took the wrong road out to Dundalk

Missed a turnin at Dungarvan

Ended up in Cork went from Galway

Dublin and on to New York

So I guess I took the long way home

I took the wrong road out to Dundalk

Missed a turnin at Dungarvan

Ended up in Cork

Went from Galway

Dublin and on to New York

So I guess I took the long way home

Oh I guess I took the long way home
