Song of the Day

I wonder if it's raining in the mountains
I wonder how the old town looks today
And if the church is there beside the river
Could I go back and find where Momma lays?

Does life still go to sleep just after sunset?
Are the berries still as big on the vines?
Do old men sit and talk about the old days
The way they did in 1949

Oh, how I'd like to be
Back in the hills of Tennessee
Oh, it would be so fine
If I could just go back to 1949

I wonder if by chance they might remember
A teenage boy so wild and fancy free
Who always loved guitars and country music
If I went back, would they remember me?

I wonder what became of Kathryn Ackers
The girl that broke my heart at seventeen
I barely can remember what she looks like
When thirty years ago she was my dream

Oh, how I'd like to be
Back in the hills of Tennessee
Oh, it would be so fine
If I could just go back to 1949

For many years I searched the wide world over
For what I don't recall and couldn't find
Now I'm searching pictures in my memory
For Tennessee 1949

Oh, how I'd like to be
Back in the hills of Tennessee
Oh, it would be so fine
If I could just go back to 1949
