Marshall CrenshawWhere Home Used To Be

I had to see for myself I had to show it to you Among my sweetest of memories I see this place in more than a few, yeah Familiar shadows remain But they are all that’s unchanged Because this whole street seems haunted now And the atmosphere is still and strange We didn't worry about much We never had a spare dime This is where home used to be In a different time I know it’s hard to believe So much has turned to dust, yeah, yeah But this is where home used to be And it was good to us, more than good to us This was our place in the world When life was new and untried When every wild dream seemed possible It felt good to be here, it was warm inside, yeah I have to say, I’m amazed Even though I learned long ago That sometimes good things get thrown away I wish right now that it wasn't so Those days are good and gone Around here it’s plain enough, yeah, yeah This is where home used to be Where we lived and loved We were only here for awhile Then we got drawn away, yeah, yeah But this is where home used to be And I pray that it’ll see a better day We didn't worry back then We never had a spare dime This is where home used to be In a different time I know it’s hard to believe So much has turned to dust, yeah, yeah But this is where home used to be And it was good to us, more than good to us I had to see for myself I had to show it to you
