My Darlin Hometown Lyrics

Far away over the sea - There's a river that's calling to me
That river she runs all around - The place that I call my hometown
There's a valley on the side of the hill - And flowers on an old windowsill
A familiar old picture it seems - And I'll go there tonight in my dreams

Where it's green in the summer - And gold in the fall
Her eyes are as blue - As the sky I recall
Far away over the sea - There's a place at the table for me
Where laughter and music abound - Just waiting there in my hometown

The river she freezes - When there's snow on the ground
And the children can slide - To the far side of town
Far away far away me - Hung up on a sweet memory
I'm lost and I wish I were found - In the arms of my darlin' hometown

With the evening sun sittin' - On the top of the hill
And the mockingbird answering - The old chapel bell
Far away over the sea - My heart is longing to be
And I wish I could lay myself down
In the arms of my darlin' hometown
