The Long and Winding Road ()
Author: Paul McCartney; Lead vocal: Paul McCartney

The long and winding road
That leads to your door
Will never disappear
I've seen that road before.
It always leads me here,
Leads me to your door.

The wild and windy night
That the rain washed away,
Has left a pool of tears
Crying for the day.
Why leave me standing here,
Let me know the way.

Many times I've been alone and many times I've cried
Anyway you'll never know the many ways I've tried, but

Still they lead me back
To the long and winding road
You left me standing here
A long, long time ago.
Don't leave me waiting here
Lead me to you door.

But still they lead me back
To the long and winding road
You left me standing here
A long, long time ago.
Don't keep me waiting here
Lead me to you door.

Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah
