I’m Going Back (©2011, Sam Salazar)

Peaches in the summertime, daises in the spring
But they’ll all become memories come winters moaning sting
Yes Decembers they hit hard to the place I’m goin’ back
Most everywhere the sky is blue but here the sky is black

I’m going back
To the lonesome valley
Where I once lived
So long ago
I’m going back
To that old wishing well
Beneath that cold black earth
Atop them rattling bones

Old Kentucky’s just a shadow and the sun she is no more
Than a washed up showgirl on a forgotten shore
Of the river that flows from the right side of my brain
Out to the windy world through this shattered window pane


I’m on my way back to the old home
beside the rocky river way down low
She’s running for the Midwest to the place that I love best
Ohio, sweet Ohio I’m coming home

I’m going back
To meet the devil
He’s been dinin’ at my desk
Some say I’m cursed some say I’m blessed

Still that earthquake of feelin’ everyday is getting greater
That old Cali girl, she told me that times a revelator
