Flatt & Scruggs

The Foggy Mountain Boys was an influential American bluegrass band founded by guitarist Lester Flatt and banjo player Earl Scruggs.

There's a happy child at home (there?s a happy child at home)
In my memory I can see (in my memory I can see)
Standing out upon the hill (standing out upon the hill)
In the shadow of a tree (in the shadow of a 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 wonder back (just to simply wonder back)
To the cabin on the hill (to the cabin on the hill)

Oh I want to wonder back (oh I want to wonder 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 overfill (joy my heart would overfill)
And I want to wonder back (and I want to wonder back)
To the cabin on the hill (to the cabin on the hill)

But the sadness of it all (but the sadness of it all)
I could never more return (I could never more return)
To that happy child at home (to that happy child at 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 wonder back (just to simply wonder back)
To the cabin on the hill (to the cabin on the hill)

Oh I want to wonder back (oh I want to wonder 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 overfill (joy my heart would overfill)
And I want to wonder back (and I want to wonder back)
To the cabin on the hill (to the cabin on the hill)
