I'll Never Go Back (Charles & Ira Louvin/Acuff-Rose, BMI) I once was bound by the chains of sin. There was no light to shine within. Down on my knees I knelt and prayed, And He took my burdens all away. cho: I'll never go back to the ways of sin. Where the Lord found me and took me in. He came to me and I won't go back. (?) To the ways of sin I'll never go back. As I travel on this narrow way, I'll help the lost to find their way. I'll shine my light so the world can see What a saving grace has done for me. At the set of sun I'll be going home, To rest my soul around the throne. I'll bid farewell in a little while, And change my tears for a lasting smile. As sung by the Louvin Brothers on "Songs That Tell a Story," 1981, and in the Rounder collection "Hills of Home," 1995. JTD]
