Take Me Back

TAKE ME BACK - Written by Carroll Bryant 


Take me back to that hill and that old red shack
Let me go back to the ways of all my kin 
Take me back to that hill and that old red shack
Let me go back to my family and friends 

Living on my own and learning what life's about 
It's a little tougher than I thought
Oh, I got to get out 
Get out of this big city, and back where I belong 
I know it's coming in the future 
It won't be very long 

Take me back to that hill and that old red shack
Let me go back to the ways of all my kin 
Take me back to that hill and that old red shack
Let me go back to my family and friends

The good life and the promise ain't what it seems to be
People going around trying to take your money
Oh, it's not for me 
I wish I could teach these folks how to break free
There's such a vast difference between New York City
And good ole Tennessee 

Just take me back to that hill and that old red shack
Let me go back to the ways of all my kin 
Take me back to that hill and that old red shack
Let me go back to my family and friends
