On My Way Back To The Old Home
Written by Bill Monroe



Chords


Song

1.

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.

chorus:

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.

2.

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.

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.
