Long Way to Heaven (Chicago Gospel Mix) - [feat. The Brown Sisters of Chicago]
THIS IS THE STORY OF JOHNNY AND LOUISE
DOWN ON KENNEDY BOULEVARD
COULD BE THE STORY OF YOU AND ME
LOSING TRACK OF WHO WE BOTH ARE
SOME HOLD ON TO DREAMS
SOME HOLD ON TO THE FEAR
THEY’RE JUST GROWING OLD…
LOUISE TURNS TO JOHNNY
PUTS HER HAND INTO HIS
WITH A SMILE THAT ONLY HE KNOWS

SUCH A LONG WAY TO HEAVEN
SUCH A LONG WAY HOME

JOHNNY SAYS “LOUISE, I DON’T KNOW
HOW FAR WE’VE COME DOWN THIS ROAD
THIS TOWN DON’T HOLD THE SAME FASCINATION
I DON’T KNOW WHICH WAY WE SHOULD GO”
HE LOOKS ACROSS
TO THE SUN SINKING DOWN
IN THE SHIMMERING, SHIMMERING GOLD
‘I DON’T KNOW WHAT THEY CALL A PLACE YOU CAN’T RETURN FROM…
LORD…
I DON’T WANT TO KNOW’

SUCH A LONG WAY TO HEAVEN
SUCH A LONG WAY HOME

TIRED AND ALONE
AND A LONG WAY FROM HOME
JOHNNY AND SWEET, SWEET LOUISE…
PULLED THEIR HOPES
OUT OF THE OCEAN
HAND IN HAND IN THE SWEET SUMMER BREEZE

SUCH A LONG WAY TO HEAVEN
SUCH A LONG WAY HOME

WHEN YOU’RE DOWN UPON YOUR LUCK
YOU’RE LUCKY TO HAVE SOMEONE YOU CAN HOLD
A LONG WAY TO HEAVEN
A LONG WAY HOME…
