I Want to Go Back
 
Chorus:
I want to go back to my hometown
I want to walk those streets again
where I kissed my first girlfriend
Parking at night beside Big Wills Creek
My heart racing, too scared to speak
I want to go back
Verse 1:
Cotton fields and backyard grills
our daddies working hard making steel
Cruising Broad Street Saturday night
we were poor but we were doing it right.
Chorus:
I want to go back to my hometown
I want to walk those streets again
where I kissed my first girlfriend
Parking at night beside Big Wills Creek
My heart racing, too scared to speak
I want to go back
Verse 2:
Bad penny on a railroad track
Flat and shiny when we got it back
Stealing hot melons from the Miller’s farm
It was wrong but we meant no harm, yea we meant no harm
Guitar Solo
Bridge
This old town just ain’t the same
It’s been forever since I heard a train
I thought that someday I would move away
But I didn’t leave this town it left me
It will never be the same again.
I don’t have to go back to my hometown
Don’t have to walk those streets again
'cause I married my first girlfriend
We still park at night beside big wills creek
Now when I kiss her I ain’t scared to speak
I don’t have to go back
I don’t need to go back
I don’t have to go back
