Back When The Old Homeplace Was New
Written and recorded by Tom T. Hall

C F C
Well the children come back to see the old homeplace
G7 C
They don't see a thing that they like
F C
The old well out back with its cool clear water
G7 C
Don't fit into their style of life

F C
The old gravel road that leads to the old homeplace
G7 C
Gets dust on their new shiny cars
F C
Well they didn't complain about nothing to do
G7 C
Back when the old homeplace was new

F C
Back when the old homeplace was new
G7
There was plenty to see and to do
F C
But they can't remember and I ain't gonna tell 'em
G7 C
Back when the old homeplace was new

F C
There's an old swimming hole about a half mile away
G7 C
And an old tire still swings from a tree
F C
I've got an old jar full of lightening bugs
G7 C
And I just dug fishing worms yesterday

F C
They can't get on line from my old telephone
G7 C
And I ain't got no cable TV
F C
Oh we used to tell stories and some of them true
G7 C
Back when the old homeplace was new

Repeat #3

F C
The toys they treasured are stashed in the attic
G7 C
Except for a rusty old bike
F C
There's a big ball of string in a drawer in the kitchen
G7 C
They used to use flying their kites


F C
There's a battered old can out there by the tool shed
G7 C
An old can that they used to kick
F C
They sit on the porch and they stare down the driveway
G7 C
They just can't see living like this

Repeat #3
