Back Home

Anderson, John (USA)
The late night nurse checks in and she makes her rounds
Quietly she walks in 204
She checks Miss Johnson's vitals and she writes them down
When she sees a young man standing at the door

He said, "My name is Joe, I'm her oldest son"
Miss Johnson moved her hand and gave a smile
He said, "I joined the marines when I was twenty-one
And I haven't seen my momma in quite a while"

He said, "I can't stay long you see
I've come to taker her home with me"
With a clipboards in her hand
She said, "I don't think she can"

Go home, where she really wants to be
Back home, with her friends and family
Forever born and never be alone
She's going home, back home

Late on that night, Miss Johnson passed away
The nurse made the call to bring the family down
She walked back to the hall to check on Joe
But discovered he was nowhere to be found

She told the family about Joe
They said that just can't be so
And chills ran up her spine
When she finally realized

He took her home, where she really wants to be
Back home, with her friends and family
Forever born and never be alone
She's going home, back home
Where she really wants to be
Back home, with her friends and family
Forever born and never be alone
She's going home, back home
