1.

G / / / |C / / Back in the days of my childhood, / |G / / / |D / / / In the eve-ning when every-thing was still, |G / / / |C / / I used to sit and listen to the fox hounds, / |G / D / |G / / / With my dad in the old Ken-tucky hills.

chorus:

|G / / / |C / / / I'm on my way back to the old home, |G / / / |D / / / That road winds on up - the hill, |G / / / |C / / / But there's - no light in the window, |G / D / |G / / / | That shined long a-go where I lived.

2.

chorus:

3.

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