The Fields Of Home
Recorded by Ricky Skaggs
Written by Larry Cordle and Larry Shell

C G7
I remember how I’d cuss
F D7
The taste of that old hillside dust
C G7
And the hot July sun that burned my back
C G7
As I walked between the rows
F Am D7
I dreamed of places that I’d go
C G7 C G7
Far away from the fields of home

C G7
A young man longs to get away
F D7
And I told Dad I would someday
C G7
And I remember how I laughed at his reply
C G7
He said son someday you’ll long
F Am D7
To kiss this ground you’re standing on
C G7 C
When there’s miles between you and the fields of home

B7 C A7
I left before I turned 18 I set out to do big things
Dm G7 F C F
Oh I didn’t write or call I thought I knew it all
B7
And for a while I lived it up
C A7
But when I got down on my luck
Dm C F G7 C G7
I started longing for the fields of home

C G7
Now 20 years have slipped away
F D7
But I went back the other day
C G7
And found the weeds had taken Daddy’s farm
C G7
I looked for Gene’s old grocery store
F D7
The road don’t run by there no more
C G7 C
And I didn’t recognize the fields of home

B7 C A7
I left before I turned 18 I set out to do big things
Dm G7 F C
Oh I didn’t write or call I thought I knew it all
B7
I can’t believe how things have changed
C A7
And they won’t ever be the same
Dm C F G7 C
Lord I wish I’d never left the fields of home

Dm Em F G7 C
Tonight I long to walk the fields of home
