Hank Locklin – My Old Hometown lyrics

I've seen Big Ben in London town the lights of gay Paris
The charming seems the foreign lands leave golden memory
I've seen the gleam in harbor lights from on the ocean blue
But the place I'm longing most to see is my old hometown and you
I've walked the streets of Tokio the beach of Waikiki
I've rambled all the world around I've sailed the seven seas
I've seen the town of great Reneau the land of mansions too
But the place I'm longing most to see is my old hometown and you
[ guitar ]
I've seen the deserts burning sand blue mountains great and tall
I've seen the wonders of the world the wrippling waters fall
I've seen the lovely Carabbian and her in Cheyenne View
But the place I'm longing most to see is my old hometown and you
