Pablo - The lyric does not appear in the digitrad, bu I did find the below message in the forum. Perhaps it will give you clue on where to go next.

Not only did Steven Wade produce the wonderful compilation of field recordings from the Library of Congress (Rounder CD1500) with wonderful liner notes--but publication is expected shortly of a full length book based on those liner notes by the University of Illinois Press. He had two shows which ran forEVER in Washington, DC--"Banjo Dancing" and a follow-up called something like "The Long Road Home", and there's a CD on Flying Fish called "Dancing Home" compiled from excerpts of those two shows.

He lives in the DC area, and obviously spends a lot of time of time at the Library of Congress. I keep hoping someone can persuade him to revive his stage shows (though not necessarily for a decade-long run).

Marian Bradfield wrote THE LONG ROAD HOME. She sings it on her album "The Emperor's Field" (1998) and on the various-artists albums "Celtic Lives: Tales of Pride" (1998) and "Celtic Journeys: Celtic Spirit" (2007). This information is from

(Several other people have written songs with the same title.)

I transcribed these lyrics from a sound sample:

Pain now turns to rage within(?).
She spits the words out.
"You hurt me, took my childhood away.
It was not my fault," she proudly says.
"I'll survive, come back from the pain.
You can't hurt me anymore...."

Note, this song should not be confused with the poem of the same title composed by Cicely Fox Smith and first adapted for singing by Peter Massey (UK).
