cabin on the hill lyrics – earl scruggs

there’s a happy childhood home
(there’s a happy childhood home)
in my memory i can see
(in my memory i can see)

standing out upon the hill
(standing out upon the hill)
‘neath the shadow of the tree
(‘neath the shadow of the tree)

if i only had my way
(if i only had my way)
it would give my heart a thrill
(it would give my heart a thrill)

just to simply wander back
(just to simply wander back)
to the cabin on the hill
(to the cabin on the hill)

oh, i want to wander back
(oh, i want to wander back)
to the cabin on the hill
(to the cabin on the hill)

‘neath the shadow of the tree
(‘neath the shadow of the tree)
i would like to linger still
(i would like to linger still)

just to be with those i love
(just to be with those i love)
joy my heart would over fill
(joy my heart would over fill)

and i want to wander back
(and i want to wander back)
to the cabin on the hill
(to the cabin on the hill)

but the saddest of it all
(but the saddest of it all)
i can never more return
(i can never more return)

to that happy childhood home
(to that happy childhood home)
matters not how much i yearn
(matters not how much i yearn)

if i only had my way
(if i only had my way)
it would give my heart a thrill
(it would give my heart a thrill)

just to simply wander back
(just to simply wander back)
to the cabin on the hill
(to the cabin on the hill)

oh, i want to wander back
(oh, i want to wander back)
to the cabin on the hill
(to the cabin on the hill)

‘neath the shadow of the tree
(‘neath the shadow of the tree)
i would like to linger still
(i would like to linger still)

just to be with those i love
(just to be with those i love)
joy my heart would over fill
(joy my heart would over fill)

and i want to wander back
(and i want to wander back)
to the cabin on the hill
to the cabin on the hill
