back home again

Hey it’s good to be back home again
Sometimes this old house feels like a long-lost friend…

It sure is good to be back home again, this old house has been like a friend now for over 30 years.

I missed filling my flower boxes this year, and am considering getting some fall bloomers.

I missed sitting on the screened porch.

I missed my daily walk down the driveway to the mailbox.

It’s the sweetest thing I know of, just spending time with you
It’s the little things that make a house a home
Like a fire softly burnin’ supper on the stove
The light in your eyes that makes me warm

Hey it’s good to be back home again
Sometimes this old farm feels like a long-lost friend
Yes ’n’ hey, it’s good to be back home again

Back Home Again - words and music by John Denver
