Maybe someday I might go back home again,

just to see if anything still stands.

Used to know a couple o' old friends back there,

oh but I let all that slip outa my ha-ands.

 

Oh someday I might give that boy a ca-all,

just to see if he's still li-ivin'.

I used to give him trouble, oh my lord,

wonder if I can be forgiven.

 

 

Oh someday I might try to get somewhere,

an' pick up where I left off in early days,

I had more dreams than one poor soul could follow,

so' I let 'em all bu-urn away-ay.

 

It's true I got a wicked little heart,

wrapped inside a weak an' worried mi-ind,

but long as I ain't givin it to anyone,

don't mind me as I'm just doin my +time.

 

 

Maybe someday I might go back home again,

before my checkout time has come,

just to look into the eyes of forever,

just to say I'm sorry for all the damage done.

 

Oh some day I might give that boy a call,

wonder if his hair's still lo-ong,

if he's livin, an' I wonder if he still can

remember all the words o-of our song.

 

 

 

That's how it goes,

that's how it goes,

everyone thinks

but no one knows,

that's how it goes.

I like these lyrics, Polly. A lot of good lines in there. I'm less sure about the melody. To me it drifts a bit almost like it's not sure where it's headed. This might just be me.

Ok thanks. I don't know, I kind of like the melody at least parts of it. Some people like it, but some don't. Dunno.

Yes, don't just go by what I say. That's never a good idea 🙂 I tend to go for strong, "in your face" melodies and maybe don't appreciate other kinds as much as I should.

I don't know. One friend I sent it to didn't like it at all, but didn't say why. Another two friends loved it. But the ones who loved it are real folk music lovers. My music is very often old-time sounding, and that is definitely not for everyone.
