Lyrics

Oh I’ve lived on this hill for many a year

Many a year have I

And each day I walk down the hill into town

Just to say hello and goodbye

I walk by the baker, I walk by the school

I go read the paper, just to see what’s in the news

When it gets dark, I walk back up the hill

Back up the hill do I

For I have done what I wanted to do

I have said hello and goodbye

 

Oh I’ve lived in this town for all of my life

All of my years have I

I know everyone and I call them by name

When I say hello and goodbye

I shake hands with my neighbor, I wave to my friends

I go see the preacher just to make my amends

When it gets dark, I walk back up the hill

Back up the hill do I

For I have done what I wanted to do

I have said hello and goodbye

 

Oh I’ve lived on this hill for many a year

Many a year have I

And today is my favorite day of the week 

Just to say hello and goodbye

I go kiss my wife, tell my kids to behave

Then I go with them all to put flowers on my grave

When it gets dark, I walk back up the hill

Back up the hill do I

For I have done what I wanted to do

I have said hello and goodbye
