Adkins, Trace - My Way Back Lyrics



Momma put a Bible in my glove boz
A hot homemade apple pie on the passenger seat
She said you'll always be my baby
And she planted a kss and a couple tears on my cheek
Dad slipped me some travelin' cash
Threw a map with a highlighted route on the dash
And I realize, as i look back, that
They weren't just saying goodbye
They weren't just seeing me off
They were just making sure that I
Don't forget where I'm from
Go out there and do your family proud son
Momma loved and Daddy worked
And lived their lives just to make sure i know
My way back home
I can still smell Momma's kitchen
And feel every single prayer she says for me
I can point these wheels toward that sunset
Without a fear, without a doubt, Daddy says, "Go for that dream"
I left behind a pie-crumb trail
Just in case I get lost, fall flat, or fail
And if the wind should leave my sail
They weren't just saying goodbye
They weren't just seeing me off
They were just making sure that I
Don't forget where I'm from
Go out there and do your family proud son
Momma loved and Daddy worked
And lived their lives just to make sure i know
My way back home
To that door that's always open
And that light that's always on
To the love that's always waiting
After being gone too long
They weren't just saying goodbye
They weren't just seeing me off
They were just making sure that I
Don't forget where I'm from
Go out there and do your family proud son
Momma loved and Daddy worked
And lived their lives just to make sure i know
I always know, I always know
My way back home
My way back home

    I can remember when my son was in third grade he played this song for me and told me he wanted to be an arcantech and th st he can see me doing this when he goes off to college and he is 18 and getting ready to graduate high school also already got excepted into his dream college so I knew from the second I heard this song he had his future planed out for himself and that he is set out to fulfil his dream I am so proud of him so son go out there and make your family proud not that we already are

  6. Devil Makcare

    This song makes me think when I leave for college what will I miss at home

  7. RedPagan Corner

    This song has never spoken to me as much as it has as the days tick closer to when i leave to go out east from.living all my life in NorCal. I will miss the people i have come to call familh here but the move will be a new chapter in my life. I have a wonderful support system that aren't trying to get me to consider mh options because they don't want me to go but because they aren't just saying goodbye or seeing me off, they just want me to remember where im from and that whatever i do to make them all proud of me. And i will. Because they have all given their lives and busted ass for their families and for me. And that even if i do decide to come back they want me to kno that i have a home waiting for me.
