Looking Forward to Seeing You Again
by Tom T. Hall



Looking forward to seeing you again I'm looking forward to seeing you again
Well it seems like only yesterday that I was living here
And I'm surprised that hasn't change through'out these many years
That old tree ain't grown much more than six or seven feet
Lord I sometimes wish that I lived on this street
Looking forward to seeing you again I'm looking forward to seeing you again
It's silly but in all my little hometown kinda dreams
I thought of you and sunny skies and ice banana cream
I think of coffee conversation about the local folks
And how things were when I was just a joke
And I'm looking forward to seeing you again
Oh I'm looking forward to seeing you again
I know I'm foolish when I think that life here never ends
The never changing smile of all my old familiar friends
But I suppose that death is just as real in Olive Hill as it is in some big city by a mill
I'm looking forward to seeing you again oh I'm looking forward to seeing you again
Remember all the times I've had to borrow fifteen bucks
How could I be so optimistic so down on my luck
You never mentioned that I had so many things to learn
And you never said it when my back was turned
And I'm looking forward to seeing you again my friend
I'm looking forward to seeing you again
Well here I am a few miles from your friendly coffee pot
I meant to call and tell you I was here but I forgot
I guess we never changed much from the things that we have been
But I'm looking forward to seeing you again
I'm looking forward to seeing you again oh I'm looking forward to seeing you again
There ain't too many cities like this pretty town today
And I can hear an old dog barkin' somewhere far away
Perhaps the great brave friend son of a dog that I once knew
Barking at somewhere with whom I went to school
Looking forward to seeing you again oh I'm looking forward to seeing you again
Looking forward to seeing you again my friend
I'm looking forward to seeing you again
Looking forward to seeing you again oh I'm looking forward to seeing you again
