1.

G / / / |G / / / | I left - my old home in the mountains, G / / / |D / / / | And the only friends I've ever had, / |G / / / |C / / And though I - have traveled this world over, / |D / / / |G / / / | My heart's been - so lone-some and sad.

chorus:

C / / / |G / / / | I'm going back to the old home, G / / / |D / / Back to the place I love so well, / |G / / / |C / / Where the sweet waters flow and the wild flowers grow, / |D / / / |G / / / | All a-round the old home on the hill.

2.

I know my dear old mother loves me, And I know she's waiting there still, With the twinkle in her eye and the silver in her hair, Our old cabin home on the hill.

chorus:

3.

It's many years now since I saw her, And I've traveled many a mile, Tonight there's a light in the window, And she's waiting at the door with a smile.
