Tom T. Hall Looking Forward To Seeing You Again

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 thru’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-great grandson 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
