Story behind the song
Randy and his wife moved back to Indiana and lived there a year. He was near his hometown of Paoli, Indiana. He wrote this song literally when he moved back home in Indiana.
Back home in Indiana on an old dusty road
We'd ride in the back of our uncle's pickup truck singing songs
We'd sing "This Land is Your Land", followed by "Country Roads"
We sing the hymns we loved so much, as we were traveling along
The sun was shining bright in Indiana
The memories still run fresh in my mind
We learned of God and faith in Indiana
Many joys will be remembered, in the good 'ol days gone by
In our little country home a few miles outside of town
We'd go and play and not come back for hours we were free
The woods they were our fortress protecting us from harm
But we knew that we were loved at home as we'd come back to reality
Country roads, take me home, to the place, I belong
Many joys will be remembered in the good 'ol days gone by
