lyrics:  

Back in the days of my childhood
In the evening when everything was still
I used to sit and listen to the fox hounds
With my dad in those old Kentucky hills

(chorus:)
I'm on my way back to the old home
That road winds on up the hill
But there's no light in the window
That shined long ago where I lived

Soon my childhood days were over
I had to leave my home
For my mother and dad were called to heaven
I lived in this world all alone

(chorus)

High in the hills of 'ol Kentucky
Stands a fog that's in my memory
I'm on my way back to the old home
That light in the window I long to see

(chorus)
