Circle Back

(c) 2016 by Ed Seykota

We're [C] driving hard to [Am] be on time – we're [Dm] 20 minutes [G7] late.

She [C] says she left the [Am] iron on – our [Dm] plan will have to [G7] wait.

It's [C] family first - pro - [Am] - tect our home - don't [Dm] leave our love to [G7] fate.

Circle [F] back, [Ab] baby, circle [C] back.


Circle [F] back. Circle [C] back.

I can [C] hear her rea - [Am] - sure me that she [Dm] always circles [G7] back.

Circle [F] back. Circle [C] back.

I [F] see it in her [Ab] eyes, she circles [C] back.

One day we have a quarrel – I'm so right and tell her why.

I say some things that hurt - she takes my hand and starts to cry.

She doesn't run away – she softly says why don't we try, to

Circle back, baby circle back.


Through the years our joys and tears - when I would run off track

she'd gently find a way to say - she never would attack

she'd cut the loss and start again, she always had the knack, for

circling back, baby, circling back.


My daughter comes to visit me, now that I'm alone

She sounds more like her mom each day, I see how she has grown.

In her eyes I see that spirit - in her voice I hear that tone, she

circled back, oh yes, she circled back.
