Speed of the Sound of Loneliness by John Prine


I love John Prine and this is one of my favorite songs. I must admit that I prefer Nanci Griffin’s version of it to Prine’s. I think I’ve always loved the line, “you come home straight and you come home curly.”  There are lots of covers of this song on YouTube so look it up!

You come home late and you come home early

You come on big when you’re feeling small

You come home straight and you come home curly

Sometimes you don’t come home at all

— John Prine
