You Can't Go Home Again

You Can't Go Home Again

Nanci Griffith

So much silence to my hometown streets,
gonna put my cheek to the window and watch it sleep
Where the shadows fall from sycamore trees,
fight off this north wind and I'll be headin' back east
Let the Colorado River roll on to the sea.

I will be crossing it in changes
This ol' town never did really care that much for me.
I don't know why I always come here in my dreams
It's the hardest to hold but it's the easiest to find.
If you'll slip for the dollar I'll fall in your wine
But you cannot save your past for today.

It will leave you cold on an outbound train
Let the Colorado River roll on to the sea.
I will be crossing it in changes
This ol' town never did really care that much for me.
I don't know why I always come here in my dreams
Folded memories in my soul.

It's that old blue line that you can never go back home
So I'm waiting for the moon to rise.
He'll kiss my tears away and set my heart in line
Let the Colorado River roll on to the sea.
I will be crossing it in changes

This ol' town never did really care that much for me.
I don't know why I always come here in my dreams
Let the Colorado River roll on to the sea.
I will be crossing it in changes

This ol' town never did really care that much for me.
I only come here to remember my dreams
