Lyrics

mm mm
mm hmm hmm
mm hmm hmm
hmm hmm hmm

old tin roof
leaves in the gutter
a hole
in the screen door
big as your fist
and flies
on the butter

mamaw bakin'
sugar cookies
we were
watchin' cartoons

i heard her holler
from the kitchen
which one of
you young 'uns
wants to lick
the spoon

yellow jackets
on the watermelon
honeysuckle
in the air

daddy turnin' on
the sprinkler
us kids runnin'
through it
in our underwear

old dog nappin'
on the front porch
his ear just a-twitchin'
i fell asleep on
granddaddy's lap
to the sound of
his pocket watch
a-tickin'

woh oh hoh
woh oh hoh
it doesn't seem like
it was all that
long ago
woh oh hoh oh oh oh
woh oh hoh oh hoh

well you can dream
about it
every now and then
but you can't
go home again
mm hmm hmm mm mm

me and
my best friend jenny
set up
a backyard camp

stole one-a
mama's mason jars
poked holes in the lid
and made
a firefly lamp

me and
billy monroe
a-sneakin' down
by the river

and i'm still haunted
by the taste
of the kiss
i was too scared
to give him
ha ha ha

woh oh hoh
woh oh hoh
it doesn't seem like
it was all that
long ago
woh oh hoh oh oh oh
woh oh hoh oh hoh

you can dream
about it
every now and then
but you can't
go home again
mm hmm
mm hmm

a-there's
a blacktop road
a faded yellow
center line

it can take you back
to the place
but it can't
take you back
in time

woh oh hoh
woh oh hoh
it doesn't seem like
it was all that
long ago
woh oh hoh hoh
woh oh hoh oh oh
oh hoh

you can dream
about it
every now and then
but you can't
go home again

old tin roof
leaves in the gutter
a hole
in the screen door
big as your fist
and flies
on the butter
