Goin Back

Once i heard a thoughtful song
its theme was goin back
cut by dusty springfield
a fairly well known track

oliva song of country roads
gave her much success
helen shapiro got a hit
in walking to happiness

yesterday when i was young
windmills of my mind
tom jones was coming home
to a place he left behind

going through the scrapbook
of the pages of your time
paper roses, empty cups
and boxes left behind

penny lane a memory lane
walk me once again
love came out in sunshine
and left in pouring rain

memories just like a quilt
with coloured patterns lay
take me back country roads
amongst the new mown hay

dreamers only ever dream
of better days thats true
but in the realm of memories
is where i m walking too

Enjoyed this! A really nice walk through the songs- though my favorite stanzas are the 4th & the last(between the both, they only mention 1 song laugh , but there's great writing in them!) wine
