"You Can't Go Back Home" as written by and Morgan/fleming....
Flew in this morning on the 8-0-5
Had a couple of hours to spare.
I wanted to see the hometown again
It'd been years since I was there.
A taxi took me by the old grade school
But on the playground there was no sound
Windows boarded up, a rusty sign laying on the ground.

[Chorus]
They say you can't go back
Anymore than you can stop the wind from blowing,
You can't change the changes going on (going on)
They say you can't go back anymore than you can stop the door from closing.
Once you're gone, you can't go back home

Drove in front of the movie house where I spent my Saturdays
Quarter got ya in back then, costed three and a half today.
And he stopped by Shipleys bakery,
But Mr. Shipley had passed away.
I got back in the cab, I saw that everything had changed.

[Chorus]

Taxi pulled up in front of your house,
I started to get out,
Then I, I saw a little boy open the door
I quickly turned around.
I told the driver, guess there's no one home,
I think he understood, you've got a plane to catch he said, the drive will do you good.

They say you can't go back anymore than you can stop the wind from blowing,
You can't change the changes going on, going on,
They say you can't go back anymore than you can stop the door from closing,
Once you're gone, you can't go back home
Once you're gone, you can't go back home

Be it ever so humble, there's no place like home
