THE ESSENTIAL BLUEGRASS ALBUM - 09 TAKE ME BACK TO RENFRO VALLEY lyrics

TAKE ME BACK TO RENFRO VALLEY

(John Lair)


I was born in Renfro Valley but I drifted far away
I've been back to see the old home and my friends of other days
Gone were all familiar faces, all the friends I used to know
Things have changed in Renfro Valley since the days of long ago

-Solo-

Others own the old plantation, I can't call it home no more
Other voices sing the old songs, other children 'round the door
Other voices sing the old songs when the evening sun is low
Mother sang in Renfro Valley, in the days of long ago

Take me back to Renfro Valley when I'm free from earthly cares
Lay me back by dad and mother, let me sleep forever there
When it's springtime in the mountain and the dogwood blossoms grows
We'll be back in Renfro Valley as in days of long ago

-Solo-

Things have changed in Renfro Valley since the days of long ago
