The House That Built Me by Miranda Lambert

I know they say
You can't go (1)________ again

I just had to come back one last time

Ma’am I know
You don’t know me (2)________ Adam

But these (3)____________________ on the front steps are mine

And up those stairs
In that little back bedroom

Is where I did my homework
And I learned to play guitar

And I bet you didn’t know
Under that live oak
My favorite dog is buried in the yard

I thought if I could touch this place or feel it
This brokenness inside me might start healing
Out here its like I’m someone else
I thought that maybe I could find myself

If I could just come in I swear I’ll leave
Won’t take nothing but a memory
From the house that
Built me

Mama cut out pictures of houses for years

From ‘Better Homes and Garden’ magazines

Plans were drawn and concrete poured
And nail by nail and board by board

Daddy gave life to mama’s dream

I thought if I could touch this place or feel it

This brokenness inside me
Might start healing

Out here its like I’m someone else
I thought that maybe I could find myself

If I could just come in I swear I’ll leave

Won’t take nothing but a memory

From the house that
Built me

You (4)__________ home
You move on
And you do the best you can
I got lost in this whole world and forgot
Who I am

I thought if I could touch this place or (5)________ it
This (6)____________________ (7)____________ me
Might start healing

Out here its like I’m someone else
I thought that maybe I (8)__________ find myself
If I could (9)________ around I swear I’ll leave
Won’t take (10)______________ but a memory
From the house that
Built me
