Ellis County
Buddy & Julie Miller

Take me back when times were hard but we didn't know it
If we ate it we had to grow it
Take me back when all we could afford was laughter
And two mules instead of a tractor
Take me back again

Take me back where there was nothing left to throw out
There was a light that wouldn't go out
Take me back when we had swollen fingers we'd gotten
When everybody helped pick the cotton
Take me back again

Take me back to places where my memory tarries
Take me back to precious things that my heart carries

Take me back when daddy led the singing on Sunday
Nobody had to plow until Monday
Take me back when I could feel the kiss of my mother
And I had all my sisters and brothers
Take me back again
