I know they say you can't go home again
I just had to come back one last time
Ma'am I know you don't know me from Adam
But these handprints on the front steps are mine
Up those stairs in that little back bedroom
Is where I did my homework and I learned to play guitar
I bet you didn't know under that live oak
My favorite dog is buried in the yard

Moma cut out pictures of houses for years
From Better Homes and Gardens magazine
Plans were drawn and concrete poured
Nail by nail and board by board
Daddy gave life to Mama's dream

You leave home and you move on and you do the best you can
I got lost in this old world and forgot who I am
I thought if I could touch this place or feel it
This brokenness inside me might start healing
Out here it's like I'm someone else
I thought that maybe I could find myself
If I could just come in I swear I'll leave
Won't take nothing but a memory
From the house that built me.

Home don't we all just want to go back sometimes?
My life has been so full and the words in this song echo
what my life was like and thought it would be nice to share just a little
about me and my family. This is our old home place the picture was taken when my sisters took a road trip down memory lane and they went back to the old house and took pictures. That's Mom and Dad on their wedding day and that's me on the far right and my sisters.
The song is by Miranda Lambert if you'd like to hear her sing it
and watch her video here is the link.
