I’m a long lost boy returning

Home from a bloody war in a far off land

It’s good to see my sisters and my brothers

And the folks I left behind


I’ve seen my share of heroes

Men with broken hearts but I never saw them cry

Battle scarred and weary, many have gone

But me and young Jim survived


I bring peace and I bring joy

I’m a home town boy

And I’m proud of the place I was raised in

I’ve been ten thousand miles

And I’ll stay for a while

And I won’t let no time go a-wasting
