Verse 1:

When I think back to when I was just a boy
The hills in my backyard gave me joy
I was lucky that I had a place where I was free to roam

Chorus:

Back in the Hills of Massachusetts

Verse 2:

There was a forest there that called to me
It streched for miles into infinity
I'm gonna take you back there to the rivers and the trees

Chorus:

Back to the Hills of Massachusetts

Bridge 1:

I got a dog named Lady
Waiting after school each day
We roam the hills in my backyard

I think I'll climb a maple tree
To the top so I can see

Chorus:

I love those Hills Of Massachusetts

Verse 3:

I guess that's where I found out how to be free
I learned a lot about life naturally
And still today I hear the call of the wild again

Chorus:

Thruout the Hills of Massachusetts

Bridge 2:

I got a dog named Lady
Waiting after school each day
We roam the hills in my backyard

I'm gonna find some rocks to climb
I'm gonna have a real good time

Chorus:

I love those Hills Of Massachusetts

Verse 4:

Maybe someday I'll be back that way
I wonder what I'll find where once I did play
It might be gone
But it's still in my backroad memories

Ending:

I'm gonna go back there
I said I wanna go back there
I'm gonna take you on back there
To the hills
I'm gonna go back there
I'm gonna take you on back there
To the Hills of Massachusetts
Back to the Hills of Massachusetts
Back to the hills
On back, on back, on back, on back

On back, on back, on back
Back to the Hills of Massachusetts
