Guess I’ll Go Back Home This Summer

Guess I’ll go back home this summer
Should’ve gone there long ago
I wonder who I’ll meet when I walk down Main Street
Who’ll yell the first “hello”
Wonder if they still have dances
Upstairs in the Eagles Hall
Those ball games in the park, and walking home at dark
Oh how I miss them all

After we’ve talked of everything
Then I’ll get a restless spell
I’ll walk by the house where he used to live
I hope he married well

Guess I’ll go back home this summer
Leave this daily grind behind
There’s nothing wrong I’m sure, that goin’ home won’t cure
I’ll find my peace of mind

Guess I’ll go back home this summer
What do you intend to do?
I’ve made my plans to go while fares are down so low
Why don’t you go home, too?
