I'm On My Way Back To The Old Home

Lyrics: Bill Monroe
Music: Bill Monroe

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

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


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
