The House That Built Me

Tom Douglas / Allen Shamblin

I know they say you canít go home again
I just had to come back one last time
Maíam I know you donít know me from Adam
But these handprints on the front steps are mine

Up those stairs in that little back bedroom
Is where I did my homework and I learned to play guitar
I bet you didnít know under that live oak
My favorite dog is buried in the yard

I thought if I could touch this place or feel it
This brokenness inside me might start healing
Out here itís like Iím someone else
I thought that maybe I could find myself
If I could just come in I swear Iíll leave
Wonít take nothing but a memory
From the house that built me

Mama cut out pictures of houses for you
From Better Homes and Gardens magazine
Plans were drawn and concrete poured
Nail by nail and board by board
Daddy gave life to mamaís dream

I thought if I could touch this place or feel it
This brokenness inside me might start healing
Out here itís like Iím someone else
I thought that maybe I could find myself
If I could just come in I swear Iíll leave
Wonít take nothing but a memory
From the house that built me

You leave home and you move on and you do the best you can
I got lost in this old world and forgot who I am

I thought if I could touch this place or feel it
This brokenness inside me might start healing
Out here itís like Iím someone else
I thought that maybe I could find myself
If I could just come in I swear Iíll leave
Wonít take nothing but a memory
From the house that built me
