Long Way from Home is a 1979 EP by British hard rock band Whitesnake. The titular song was written by lead singer, David Coverdale, and "Trouble" and "Ain't No Love in the Heart of the City" are the B-side tracks. The song was taken from the band's album Lovehunter, and was the lead-off track. The song charted at number 55 on the UK Singles Chart in 1979.[1]

The Japanese release was the single, and its B-side was "Walking in the Shadow of the Blues".

The song uses the lyric "long, long way from home" in its chorus, but the song itself only has one "Long" in the title. This was likely done to avoid confusion with Foreigner's similarly titled 1977 hit, Long, Long Way from Home.
