Going Back Home

Chorus
Going back home
I think I’m going to leave today
Going back home
And this time I’m bound to stay

Take a walk down Main Street
Where things going real slow
Bet ya twenty dollars
All the people will say hello, say hello

Home is where your thoughts go
When you’re on that lonesome road
Home is where you’re headed
With all the memories that you hold

Chorus
Going back home
I think I’m going to leave today
Going back home
And this time I’m bound to stay

Everybody knows you
They know your mom and dad
Know your aunts and uncles
And all the trouble that you’ve had, that you’ve had

Home is where they love you
And that’s a fact
Home is where they welcome you
And they always take you back

Instrumental

Chorus
Going back home
I think I’m going to leave today
Going back home
And this time I’m bound to stay

I think about that blue-eyed girl
I left so long ago
I wonder if she’s married know
With kids all in a row, in a row

They say you can’t back again
And I suppose they’re right
But in my imagination
I go there every night

You know this is a long road
Been traveling most of my life
I ain’t ever settled down
I ain’t ever took a wife, took a wife

Home is where your heart is
So I’ve been told
Guess I better get me one
Before I get too old
