The Village Where I Went to School

Well, I've travelled the world, I've heard people say:
"Funny how life has slipped away"
But I knew that I'd come back someday
To the village where I went to school
 
In the corner of a field there's a big oak tree
It's been growing there before you and me
I've carved my name for all to see
In the village where I went to school
 
I would sit in the class on a winter's morn
Sometimes I'd wish I'd never been born
In second-hand clothes that were tattered and torn
In the village where I went to school
 
Where are they now, some went over the sea
Odd ones came back to the village like me
 
There's a smell of bread from the baker's shop
And the little store where we bought our pop
The coalman's old horse, he'd go clippety-clop
Through the village where I went to school
 
Well, I've many childhood memories
Like the time when all the school caught fleas
And the orchard where we climbed the trees
In the village where I went to school
 
Now I've come back home and I reminisce
I look around at the things I missed
As the the sun comes up, I watch it kiss
The village where I went to school
 
Like the old village stream, the water flows on
Some folks have stayed, while others have gone
 
Well, I'll look around and I'll find a wife
I've had my share of trouble and strife
And it's here I'll spend the last years of my life
In the village where I went to school
