Listen to the tune

1. Today I went back to the place where I used to go,
Today I saw the same old crowd I knew before.
When they asked me what had happened, I tried to tell them,
"Thanks to Calv'ry I don't come here anymore."


Thanks to Calv'ry I am not the man (dad) I used to be,
Thanks to Calv'ry things are different than before.
While the tears ran down my face, I tried to tell them (him)(her),
"Thanks to Calv'ry I(we) don't come(live) here anymore."

2. And then we went back to the house where we used to live,
My little boy(girl) ran and hid behind the door;
I said, "Son(Honey), never fear you've got a new Daddy,
Thanks to Calv'ry we don't live here anymore."

CHORUS: use words in parentheses according to how 2nd. verse was sung.
