Stewart, Rod - Tomorrow Is A Long Time Lyrics




If today was not an endless highway
If tonight was not a crooked trail
If tomorrow wasn't such a long time
then lonesome would mean nothing to you at all

Ah but only if my own true love is waitin'
Yes and if I could hear her heart a softly poundin'
only if she were lying by me
would I rest in my bed once again

I can't see my reflection in the mirror
I can't speak the sounds that show no pain
I can't hear the echoes of my footsteps
and can't remember the sound of my own name

Ah but only if my own true love is waitin'
Yes and if I could hear her heart a softly poundin'
only if she were lying by me
would I rest in my bed once again

There's beauty in the silver singin' river
There's beauty in the sunlight in the sky
But none of these, and nothing else
can steal the beauty
that I remember in my true love's eyes

Ah but only if my own true love is waitin'
Yes and if I could hear her heart a softly poundin'
only if she were lying by me
would I rest in my bed once again

    The Greatest Love Song Ever Written.

  3. Sgt Reckless Army vet

    Only Rod can do what he does

  4. Manny Badabing

    I love how these Brit blokes interpret Americana.

    Manny Badabing

    @Sgt Reckless Army vet lol, c'mon.

    arseman arse

    @Sgt Reckless Army vet Rod is a Brit as well as being English being born and raised in London (his father was Scottish) 
    All people of the 3 countries that make up the island of Great Britain - England, Wales and Scotland - are British.

    jim farmer

    Where the heck do you think "Americana" came from????

    David Lambert

    @Sgt Reckless Army vet You are joking aren't you? Or are you geographically challenged? In future, especially after Brexit (Britain's exit from the European Union) - Scotland might vote for independence - but until then - Scotland is very much part of Britain, as is Wales and Northern Ireland.

    David Lambert

    @jim farmer Yes, folk music... brought to America by immigrants. It took on a whole new life of its own & evolved - was the foundation of blues, jazz & many other side-shoots.

  5. Thomas A. Bradley

    Rod's voice, Ronnie Wood's guitar......unbeatable!

    Rob Roper

    And Dick Powell s violin

  6. John Knottenbelt

    Rod Stewart, One of the few people who can add magic to a Bob Dylan tune !

    Lethia Page

    He brings something special to every song he touches but you're right Bob Dylan songs must be rather intimidating!!

  7. melissa beljeter

    Nah aint feeling this cover. Just gimme the guitar and Bob.

    Degree7

    I’m not feeling your comment

  8. Martin Smith

    So many covers of this Dylan song but this is by far the best.

    Price Pittsburgh

    The Elvis version I think is best and Dylan agrees

    Asif Saifullah

    @Price Pittsburgh There’s no Elvis version of this song. Elvis actually copied Odetta Holmes cover.

    Price Pittsburgh

    @Asif Saifullah Not according to Dylan and her version is sung lower alto. Elvis recorded plenty of rich baritone tracks but chose to sing this softer than her and higher.

  9. KEITH NALUMANGO

    Bob Dylan' tearjerker by Rod. I love it.

    Lucy Potato

    Bob Dylan wrote this? Do tell?

    Lucy Potato

    This a Bob Dylan song?

    Lucy Potato

    I had no idea?

    roderick scott

    yeah Lucy ,just one of a few of Dylans songs Rod covered , can,t separate this from Mama , you,ve been on my mind as my favourite , and theres also Girl from the north country , only a hobo, just like a woman. .
