Take Me Back Home [Song]

Lord Take Me Home

Lord take me home
To the beautiful hills
Where neighbors would gather
And enjoyed songs of Whiper-will

To the place where neighbors
Lived several miles away
Yet was there with lending hands
And we all met at church to pray

Chorus

"Take me back to a better time
Back before 'greed' ruled the world
When families gathered all around
Back before I lost my sweet girl

Lord take me back home
To a simpler time and place
When everyone greeted our soldiers
And everyone sat at the table for Grace"

Take me back home,oh Lord
When time seemed to stand still
At nights we'd listen to the Coyotes cry
And at times it would bring us a chill

Where houses sat way back a lane
Where strangers seldom came to call
The stars shined brighter than city lights
And most mothers were refered to as 'Maw'

repeat Chorus

"Take me back to a better time
Back before 'greed' ruled the world
When families gathered all around
Back before I lost my sweet girl

Lord take me back home
To a simpler time and place
When everyone greeted our soldiers
And everyone sat at the table for Grace"

Take me back to my old home
Right back to those old hills
Where pines grow on the ridges
And hunters enjoyed their kill

Where there are no politics
And drama is at a stand still
Where man is at peace with nature
Oh please, take me back to those hills

repeat Chorus

"Take me back to a better time
Back before 'greed' ruled the world
When families gathered all around
Back before I lost my sweet girl

Lord take me back home
To a simpler time and place
When everyone greeted our soldiers
And everyone sat at the table for Grace"

Yes,take me back to the hills ,Oh Lord
Where whiskey was made by shiners
The coal dug out to keep families warm
Can all be credited to the hands of Miners

Most of the food on the tables
Was shot by the fathers gun
Shells where too expencive to waste
To just go out and shoot for fun


repeat Chorus

"Take me back to a better time
Back before 'greed' ruled the world
When families gathered all around
Back before I lost my sweet girl

Lord take me back home
To a simpler time and place
When everyone greeted our soldiers
And everyone sat at the table for Grace"

Oh take me back to a simpler times
When friends could still be friends
Loved ones would gather around
Should someones life be coming to an end

But only for the kindness of their heart
Not just to find out what they might get
Why has everything turned to 'greed' Oh Lord
Everyone's chasing that mighty dollar to the last cent

repeat Chorus

"Take me back to a better time
Back before 'greed' ruled the world
When families gathered all around
Back before I lost my sweet girl

Lord take me back home
To a simpler time and place
When everyone greeted our soldiers
And everyone sat at the table for Grace"
