"You Can't Go Home" as written by and Joe/wilson Diffie....
My name ain't someone they would know
But I lived here not that long ago
She told me that she loved this little frame house
So I saved up some money and put a payment down

Right over there in that front porch swing
We held hands and we dreamed a dream or two
That sure looks like the same ol' door
Where I kissed her goodbye a thousand times before
Please, bring her back to me

I came lookin' for a feelin' but the feelin's gone
You can go back but you can't go home

I wonder if they'd mind if I wandered around inside
I'm feelin' kinda low and it's been such a long, long time
I'd like to get a good look at what our life used to be
But there's one bedroom I can't bear to see

Right over there in that front porch swing
We held hands and we dreamed a dream or two
That sure looks like the same ol' door
Where I kissed her goodbye a thousand times before
Please, bring her back to me

I came lookin' for a feelin' but the feelin's gone
You can go back but you can't go home

It's where it started
Home it's where the heart is
Home is where I lost it
Home, it's so hard to find again

Right over there in that front porch swing
We held hands and we dreamed a dream or two underneath the moon
That sure looks like the same ol' door
Where I kissed her goodbye a thousand times before
Please, bring her back to me

I came lookin' for a feelin' but the feelin's gone
You can go back but you can't go home
Oh, you can go back but you can't go home
