Subject: Lyr Add: I'D LIKE TO GO BACK (Larry Fuller)
My transcription from the recording at Larry Fuller's MySpace page:


I'D LIKE TO GO BACK
Larry Fuller

1. I took a walk down Mem'ry Lane,
Back to my childhood wants [sic] again.

CHORUS: I'd like to go back there. (I'd like to go back.)
I'd like to go back there. (I'd like to go back.)
I'd like to go back there (I'd like to go back.)
Just for a day.

2. I remember a house in the hills of home,
A front-porch swing, and a rollin' log.

3. Our house was built on a wooden frame,
An old tin roof. I still hear the rain.

4. I went to school in a two-room shack,
A pot-belly stove. The outhouse was out back.

5. We went to church on Sunday mornin'.
To get a seat, we had to leave early.

6. Now after church, we'd all gather 'round.
We'd have fellowship with dinner on the ground.

7. Now I thank God for Mem'ry Lane
When I get lonesome, I go back again.

LAST CHORUS: I love to go back there (I love to go back)
I love to go back there (I love to go back)
I love to go back there (I love to go back)
Ev'ry now and then.

REPEAT LAST CHORUS.
