My Way Back Submit Correct Lyrics

Submit Corrections Cancel

Mama put a Bible in my glove box
And a hot homemade apple pie on the passengers seat
She said, Youll always be my baby
Then she planted a kiss and a couple of tears on my cheek

Dad slipped me some travelin' cash
And a map with a highlighted route on the dash
And I realized as I looked back that

They werent just sayin good bye
There werent just seein me off
There were just makin sure that I
Dont forget where Im from

Go out there and do your family proud, son
Mama loved and daddy worked
Lived their lives just to make sure
I know my way back home

I can still smell Mamas kitchen
And feel every single prayer she says for me
I can point these wheels towards that sunset
With a out a fear, without a doubt
Daddy says, "Go get that dream"

I left behind a pie crumb trail
Just in case I get lost, fall flat or fail
And if the wind should leave my sail

They werent just sayin good bye
There werent just seein me off
There were just makin sure that I
Dont forget where Im from

Go out there and do your family proud, son
Mama loved and daddy worked
Lived their lives just to make sure
I know my way

Back to that door thats always open
And that light thats always on
To the love thats always waiting
After bein' gone too long

They werent just sayin' goodbye
They werent just seein' me off
There were just makin' sure that I
Dont forget where I'm from

Go out there and do your family proud, son
Mama loved and daddy worked
Gave their lives just to make sure I know
I always know, I always know my way back home

My way back home
My way back home
