Back In Time (John Hollohan)

Last night I went to sleep
and I went back home on the farm,
I could smell the fragrance in the breeze
from the lilac trees around;
I could see my pony grazing
in the field behind the barn,
And I wish that I could take me back in time.

I could see my daddy work those fields
until his back was sore,
While mama cooked our meals
and scrubbed the clothing that we wore;
Then we'd give thanks at every meal
that everything was fine,
And I wish that I could take me back in time.

Mama's homemade apple pie
and her sweet smile,
And the days I spent with daddy
in those cornfields on the farm:
It's a picture that I'll always have
implanted in my mind,
Oh, I wish that I could take me back in time.

Running through the daisies
from the school back to the farm,
With another day of learning
tucked underneath my arm;
Holding hands with Mary Lou
in a way that meant no harm,
Oh, I wish that I could take me back in time.

Now they went and built a factory
where that homestead used to be,
But it will always be home
sweet home in my memory;
I can still hear mama calling
from the front porch suppertime,
And I wish that I could take me back in time.

Mama's homemade apple pie
and her sweet smile,
And the days I spent with daddy
in those cornfields on the farm:
It's a picture that I'll always have
implanted in my mind,
Oh, I wish that I could take me back in time.
Oh, I wish that I could take me back in time.
