Joe Diffie - In My Own Backyard Lyrics


I thought that life was running off, leaving me behind
So like a fool I jumped the fence
Just to see what I could find
But love kept disappearing
Like children chasing fireflies in the dark
And to think that I once had it all in my own backyard

You’d never know it now but I used to have it all
A swing set and a plastic pool
A shaggy dog that lived to fetch a ball
An angel with a glass of tea
Laughing at the kids and me all soaking wet
From washing that old car
And to think that I once had it all in my own backyard

That bare spot’s grown over where third base used to be
And the weeds have choked out all the flowers
But they can’t kill the memory
Lord, I’d love to run back home
But there’s no one there for me
And that grass I used to hate to mow, sure is looking green

You’d never know it now but I used to have it all
A swing set and a plastic pool
A shaggy dog that lived to fetch a ball
An angel with a glass of tea laughing at the kids and me
All soaking wet from washing that old car
And to think that I once had it all in my own backyard

Whoa, you’d never know it now but I used to have it all
Once I had everything… in my own backyard
