Mountain Home
(Owen Temple)

He’s going back to Mountain Home
Cedar trees and stone
Said he’s been gone too long
He’s going back to Mountain Home

Live oak and limestone and rivers when it rains
Big sky and cedar trees and cold clear springs
Every shade of blue, every shade of green
He’s had gray prison walls, he’s due a change
of scene

He’s going back to Mountain Home
Cedar trees and stone
Said he’s been gone too long
He’s going back to Mountain Home

That trouble at the ranch dragged down the family name But he says he got more than his share of the blame
He’s been locked up in Huntsville for twenty years or so The middle of nowhere is where he wants to go

He’s going back to Mountain Home
Cedar trees and stone
Said he’s been gone too long
He’s going back to Mountain Home

Flashing yellow light intersection in town
Tells travelers to take warning, but most folks don’t slow down
With the post office closed,
the wind’s the only sound
He’s headed home on a one way Greyhound

He’s going back to Mountain Home
Cedar trees and stone
Said he’s been gone too long
He’s going back to Mountain Home
To that hilltop all alone
He’s going back to Mountain Home
