Joe Diffie - You Can't Go Home Lyrics




My name ain't someone that they would know
But I lived here not that long ago
She told me that she loved this little frame house
So I saved up some money
and put a payment down

Right over there in that front porch swing
We held hands and we dreamed a dream or two
That sure looks like the same ol' door
Where I kissed her goodbye a thousand times before
Please, bring her back to me
I came lookin' for a feelin' but the feelin's gone
You can go back, but you can't go home

I wonder if they'd mind if I wandered around inside
I'm feelin' kinda low and it's been such a long long time
I'd like to get a good look at what our life used to be
But there's one bedroom I can't bear to see

Right over there in that front porch swing
We held hands and we dreamed a dream or two
That sure looks like the same ol' door
Where I kissed her goodbye a thousand times before
Please, bring her back to me
I came lookin' for a feelin' but the feelin's gone
You can go back, but you can't go home

It's where it started
Home, it's where the heart is
Home, is where I lost it
Home, it's so hard to find again

Right over there in that front porch swing
We held hands and we dreamed a dream or two
Underneath the moon
That sure looks like the same ol' door
Where I kissed her goodbye a thousand times before
Please, bring her back to me
I came lookin' for a feelin' but the feelin's gone
You can go back, but you can't go home

Oh, you can go back, but you can't go home

Joe Diffie You Can't Go Home Comments
  1. Marvin Blankinchip

    I had a chance to see Joe two years ago at the Rich Hill, Missouri July 4th celebration. One of the best shows I've ever seen. He played for two hours and the crowd sang every song he did. Everyone​ just loves this guy. They had a big "Billy Bob Loves Charlene", banner on the new water tower. They wanted to make sure no one painted it. Mr. Diffie is just as good as he ever was. I sat about thirty feet away and it was a free show. Thank you Joe.

    When I first bought this CD back in June of 1999, I was sure this would be Joe Diffie's follow up to his #1 smash "A Night To Remember". Too bad it was never released as a single like I thought it would have been, because it surely would have been another #1 hit for Joe. My favorite cut on this album.
