You Can't Go Home
Recorded by The Statler Brothers
Written by Don Reid

G
Roy taught me how to play baseball
D7
And do the foxtrot on the harp

Taught me how to swim and fish
G
And tell the difference between bass and carp


Taught me how to snap my fingers
C
Whistle through my teeth oh Uncle Roy
D7
He sure took time to make times good
G
For a little pesky half grown boy


Aunt Kathleen would wash my clothes
D7
And blow my nose whenever nature called

Darn my socks and damn the pox
G
But kept me out of school from fall to fall


Gave me movie money though I never did
C
My chores the way I should
D7
To a nasty little nephew Kathleen
G
You sure made aunthood awful good


And Freddy used to laugh at me
D7
Whenever something valuable got broke

He taught me how to climb a tree
G
About birds and bees and taught me how to smoke


He took me on my first date I was scared to death
C
But he said you'll do fine
D7
Good buddy you're my cousin
G
But you seem more like a brother of mine


But you can't go home to the good times
D7
You can't go home anymore

Roy's all crippled up now

Kathleen can hardly see
G
Freddy's off somewhere to fight a war


And you can't go home to the good times
D7
You can't go home anymore

Everything has changed

And who was there to blame
G
The fact that you just can't go home


Looking back I'd say I had the best childhood
D7
That money just can't buy

And I owe it all to three good folks
G
Who took me in when mom began to die


They always told me son just do what's right
C
And you'll be proud just wait and see
D7
Well Roy and Kathleen I'm only proud
G
That you're the ones who's proud of me


But you can't go home to the good times
D7
You can't go home anymore

Roy's rheumatism Kathleen's cataract
G
And Freddy's fightin' someone else's war
