I´m On My Way Back To The Old Home

Song Author Bill Monroe Lyrics by: Bill Monroe Performer: Bill Monroe Submitted by: Anonymous
[G]Back in the days of my [C]childhood
In the [G]evening when everything was [D7]still
I [G]used to sit and listen to the [C]fox hounds
With my [G]dad in the [D7]old Kentucky [G]hills

I'm on my way back to the old [C]home
That [G]road winds on up the [D7]hill   
But [G]there's no light in the [C]window
That [G]shined long [D7]ago where I [G]lived

Soon my childhood days were [C]over
I [G]had to leave my old [D7]home   
For [G]my mom and dad were called to [C]heaven
I was [G]left in this [D7]world all [G]alone

I'm on my way back to the old [C]home
That [G]road winds on up the [D7]hill   
But [G]there's no light in the [C]window
That [G]shined long [D7]ago where I [G]lived

High in the hill of old [C]Kentucky
Stands [G]a foggy thought in my [D7]memory
I'm [G]on my way back to the [C]old home
That [G]light in the [D7]window I long to [G]see  

I'm on my way back to the old [C]home
That [G]road winds on up the [D7]hill   
But [G]there's no light in the [C]window
That [G]shined long [D7]ago where I [G]lived

Back in the days of my childhood
In the evening when everything was still
I used to sit and listen to the fox hounds
With my dad in the old Kentucky hills

I'm on my way back to the old home
That road winds on up the hill
But there's no light in the window
That shined long ago where I lived

Soon my childhood days were over
I had to leave my old home
For my mom and dad were called to heaven
I was left in this world all alone

I'm on my way back to the old home
That road winds on up the hill
But there's no light in the window
That shined long ago where I lived

High in the hill of old Kentucky
Stands a foggy thought in my memory
I'm on my way back to the old home
That light in the window I long to see

I'm on my way back to the old home
That road winds on up the hill
But there's no light in the window
That shined long ago where I lived
