Lori McKenna – The Way Back Home lyrics
[Verse 1]
Well keep a Bible by your bed even if you never read it
Like a candle in the drawer in case the lights go out
Keep your feet on solid ground but don't ever let the stars go
That way you'll always know the way back home

[Verse 2]
Keep a Twenty in your pocket and a book for readin'
If the truth hurts in your throat, keep mercy on your tongue
Remember forgiveness is a choice the [bitter-less are reaping ?]
That way you'll always know the way back home

[Chorus]
That way
When you're missin' somebody
The way you miss somebody that you've know your whole life
You're always
Just a mem'ry away from findin'
That dirt road that leads to the front door that made you who you are

[Verse 3]
Remember the smell of summer risin' off of the driveway
After an afternoon rain, Mama callin' you in to eat
If you feel like you've been lost, think of the backyard you came from
That way you'll always know the way back home

[Chorus]
That way
When you're missin' somebody
The way you miss somebody that you've know your whole life
You're always
Just a mem'ry away from findin'
That dirt road that leads to the front door that made you who you are
Made you who you are

[Verse 4]
In your chest there is a compass, in your blood there is a calling
And in your head there is a vision, you called that "the dream"
And leavin's part of it, if you didn't you might never know
Keep a Bible by your bed like headlights comin' up the road
