I'm On My Way Back To The Old Home
Written and recorded by Bill Monroe
G                      C
Back in the days of my childhood
       G                           D7
In the evening when everything was still
  G                             C
I used to sit and listen to the fox hounds
        G          D7           G
With my dad in the old Kentucky hills

I'm on my way back to the old home
     G                    D7
That road winds on up the hill
    G                       C
But there's no light in the window
     G           D7          G
That shined long ago where I lived

Soon my childhood days were over
  G                   D7
I had to leave my old home
    G                             C
For my mom and dad were called to heaven
      G            D7        G
I was left in this world all alone

Repeat #2
High in the hill of old Kentucky
       G                     D7
Stands a foggy thought in my memory
    G                     C
I'm on my way back to the old home
     G            D7               G
That light in the window I long to see

Repeat #2
