I'M ON MY WAY BACK TO THE OLD HOME
written by Bill Monroe


G C
Now back in the days of my childhood
G D
In the evening everything was still
G C
I used to listen to the foxhound
G D G
With my dad in the old Kentucky hills


CHORUS:
I'm on my way back to the old home
The road winds on up the hill
But there's no light in the window
That shines on the road where I live

High in the hills of old Kentucky
Is a fond spot in my memory
I'm on my way back to the old home
The light in the window I long to see

-CHORUS-

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

-CHORUS-

-CHORUS-
