The old home town is sure in trouble
It looks like it must have doubled in sin and size since I’ve been gone
The paper’s all a-full of killin’
Two million people willin’ to die for something they have never known
The city streets of drunks and junk and stone
A heaven made of hell they call their home

Now, it’s gone like the life of a child
When it turns it’s back on your mind
Tomorrow has no 'Home Sweet Home'
Look what they’ve done to mine
It just faded into time

Grandfather’s watch he gave me
Is just another memory that I have kept the way it always was
And, ever since he died it just won’t run
I always knew I was his favorite one

Now, it’s gone like the life of a child
When it turns it’s back on your mind
Tomorrow has no 'Home Sweet Home'
Look what they’ve done to mine
It just faded into time

That old house we used to live in
The roof is fallin’ in like every other one along the block
It took twenty years to pay and ten to rot
Dad says it’s all just better off forgot

Now, it’s gone like the life of a child
When it turns it’s back on your mind
Tomorrow has no 'Home Sweet Home'
Look what they’ve done to mine
It just faded into time
