WAY BACK HOME (Johnny Bristol / Wilton Felder / Gladys Knight) Junior Walker & the All-Stars - 1971 Also recorded by: Hank Crawford; The Crusaders; The Gadd Gang; The Jazz Crusaders; Byron Lee; Junior Parker; Bernard "Pretty" Purdie; U-Roy. Oh, there's good 'n bad things About the South, boy Oh, and some leave a bitter taste In my mouth, now Yeah! Like the black man livin' across the track White man were on the other side Holdin' him back Way back home, now Oh, but we won't talk about that 'Cause it's understood Ev'rybody sees the bad But what about the good? Ooh, I'd give anything Just to smell that scent Of honeysuckle growin' On a backyard fence Way back home, now 'Oow!' 'Oh heaven scent, ya'all!' (Way back home) Yeah, way back home (Way back home) Thinkin' on back home I'd love to smell the wetness Of grass and trees And see ground kissed By honey bees Like way back home, now Oh, but childhood days Are dead 'n gone Well, but the memories Still linger on Oh, have you ever gone swimmin' In a muddy creek With nothin' on your body From head to feet? Way back home, yeah How you play for the game Like hide an seek Yeah! And snk through the weeds Overhear the streams Well, I know some kids Still play those games But when they play It just ain't the same Like way back home 'Sad to sing it, ya'all!' YEAH! Way back home, way back home (Way back home) Way back Oh, I really miss those things That have faded away I remember them Like it was yesterday Now, way back home (Way back ho-ome) (Way back ho-ome) FADES: Doo-doo, do-do Doo-doo, do-ooo-do (Way back ho-ome) (Way back ho-ome).
