Earl Scruggs – Cabin On The Hill lyrics

There's a happy childhood home
(There's a happy childhood home)
In my memory I can see
(In my memory I can see)

Standing out upon the hill
(Standing out upon the hill)
'Neath the shadow of the tree
('Neath the shadow of the tree)

If I only had my way
(If I only had my way)
It would give my heart a thrill
(It would give my heart a thrill)

Just to simply wander back
(Just to simply wander back)
To the cabin on the hill
(To the cabin on the hill)

Oh, I want to wander back
(Oh, I want to wander back)
To the cabin on the hill
(To the cabin on the hill)

'Neath the shadow of the tree
('Neath the shadow of the tree)
I would like to linger still
(I would like to linger still)

Just to be with those I love
(Just to be with those I love)
Joy my heart would over fill
(Joy my heart would over fill)

And I want to wander back
(And I want to wander back)
To the cabin on the hill
(To the cabin on the hill)

But the saddest of it all
(But the saddest of it all)
I can never more return
(I can never more return)

To that happy childhood home
(To that happy childhood home)
Matters not how much I yearn
(Matters not how much I yearn)

If I only had my way
(If I only had my way)
It would give my heart a thrill
(It would give my heart a thrill)

Just to simply wander back
(Just to simply wander back)
To the cabin on the hill
(To the cabin on the hill)

Oh, I want to wander back
(Oh, I want to wander back)
To the cabin on the hill
(To the cabin on the hill)

'Neath the shadow of the tree
('Neath the shadow of the tree)
I would like to linger still
(I would like to linger still)

Just to be with those I love
(Just to be with those I love)
Joy my heart would over fill
(Joy my heart would over fill)

And I want to wander back
(And I want to wander back)
To the cabin on the hill
To the cabin on the hill
