Need help finding a poem

The only info I have is that it is from a famous male poet

and includes the words, "a long way to go"

Very cryptic I know! But any help would be great!!!

Thanks

Would you settle for 'and miles to go before I sleep' from Stopping by the Woods on a Snowy Evening by Robert Lee Frost?

Or "where I have to go":

from "The Waking" by Theodore Roethke

Or could it be a song?

You came a long way from St. Louis
A feeling I ain't going to know,
You came a long way from St. Louis
And, baaaaaby,
You still got a long way to go.

My money is on 'Stopping by Woods'!

or perhaps Tipperary?

Refrain:
It's a long way to Tipperary,
It's a long way to go.
It's a long way to Tipperary
To the sweetest girl I know.
Goodbye Piccadilly,
Farewell Leicester Square,
It's a long long way to Tipperary,
But my heart lies there.
1. Up to mighty London came
An Irish lad one day,
All the streets were paved with gold,
So everyone was gay!
Singing songs of Picadilly,
Strand, and Leicester Square,
'Til Paddy got excited and
He shouted to them there:
It's a long way . . . .
2. Paddy wrote a letter
To his Irish Molly O',
Saying, "Should you not receive it,
Write and let me know!
If I make mistakes in "spelling",
Molly dear", said he,
"Remember it's the pen, that's bad,
Don't lay the blame on me".
It's a long way . . . .
3. Molly wrote a neat reply
To Irish Paddy O',
Saying, "Mike Maloney wants
To marry me, and so
Leave the Strand and Piccadilly,
Or you'll be to blame,
For love har fairly drove me silly,
Hoping you're the same!"
It's a long way . .
