DescriptionStevie Ray Vaughan Handwritten Lyrics For "Long Way From Home" from the 1990 The Vaughan Brothers Album Family Style. On an 8.5" x 11" sheet of lined, yellow paper, folded twice. Three lines in pencil, in Stevie's hand, and three lines in ink written by Janna Lapidus Leblanc who was SRV's girlfriend at the time. Vaughan's three lines "No money in my pocket / No clothes on my back/ No food on the table / No" don't appear in the final version of the song. The four lines in Janna's hand vary from the original chorus in terms of distance "I'm a thousand miles from nowhere" versus the final version's "million miles from nowhere." Please refer to the other handwritten fragment of "Long Way From Home" lyrics currently running in this auction to see SRV's creative process as he writes the song. Family Style was released on September 25, 1990 - a month after Stevie's untimely death, the only studio album by the Vaughan Brothers. Top edge rough from being ripped from a pad, otherwise excellent condition. COAs from Janna Lapidus Lablanc and Heritage Auctions.
