Going Back
If wishes were horses 
Beggars would ride
That’s what my mama said to me
I guess it’s true...
That’s what we would do
We did it so faithfully
We rode around from town to town
In that burgundy Galaxie car
We’d pull the top down...
Never would frown
Wind in our face and our hair
Chorus:
I’m going back... I’m going back
To that home I never had
Trouble and strife
Things never went right
Somehow we always survived
Hard cash was scarce...
It just didn’t seem fair
We chalked it all up to life..
If wishes were horses 
Beggars would ride
That’s what my mama said to me
I guess it’s true...
that’s what we did do
and we did it so faithfully
Chorus:

Going Back

If wishes were horses 
Beggars would ride
That’s what my mama said to me
I guess it’s true...
That’s what we would do
We did it so faithfully

We rode around from town to town
In that burgundy Galaxie car
We’d pull the top down...
Never would frown
Wind in our face and our hair

Chorus:
I’m going back...  I’m going back... I’m going back
To that home I never had...

Trouble and strife
Things never went right
Somehow...
We always survived

Hard cash was scarce...
It just didn’t seem fair
We chalked it all up to life...

If wishes were horses 
Beggars would ride
That’s what my mama said to me
I guess it’s true...that’s what we did do
and we did it so faithfully...

Chorus:
I’m going back... I’m going back... I’m going back
To that home I never had...
