Hometown

Original Version

Going back to my hometown
Is turning my head around
Years since I saw you,
God, will I know you
Are you still a friend of mine?
Going back to my hometown
Like treading on sacred ground
Been such a long time
Don’t know what I’ll find
Going back to my hometown

I knew when I left you
That we weren’t gonna talk for a while
Oh God, how I missed you
Each and every day without your smile
Still feel what you gave me
Living far away on my own
Yes I always remember
Now I need to see which way the wind has blown

I’m going back to my hometown
It’s turning my head around
Years since I saw you,
God, will I know you
Are you still a friend of mine?
Going back to my hometown
Like treading on sacred ground
Been such a long time
Don’t know what I’ll find
Going back to my hometown

I heard from an old friend
That crime is a part of your life
It broke my heart into pieces,
Seem to cut right thru me like a knife
Here alone on the night train
Heading for an answer to my soul
With a tear on my pillow
There can only be one way to know

That’s why I’m going back to my hometown
It’s turning my head around
Years since I saw you,
God, will I know you
Are you still a friend of mine?
Going back to my hometown
Like treading on sacred ground
Been such a long time
Don’t know what I’ll find
Going back to my hometown

If you can change my tears into wine
I’m coming back to you, hometown
