WHEN I CAME HOME

©2002 - music and words by John R. Black, ℗ 42nd Street Music Seattle

I wonder if you heard my story

I tried to tell it many times before
Could it be you didn't want to listen

To a soldier singing about his war
I searched my mind to get some answers

When I came back to get settled down
But I got tired asking the questions

All my friends had left my hometown
When I came home

No parades

When I came home

No big party
When I came home

Nobody said

How do you feel

When I came home
No lottery

When I came home

No barbecues

When I came home
Nobody said

We need you
Could it be they didn't know the questions

To ask a soldier coming from that war 
Could it be they couldn't stand the answers

All they wanted was the way it was before
When I came home

No parades

When I came home

No big party
When I came home

Nobody said

How do you feel

When I came home
No lottery

When I came home

No barbecues

When I came home
Nobody said

We need you
So I can't tell you about the future

Or what all of this really means to me
I can only tell you I'll keep singing

And hope someday I'll finally be free
When I came home

No parades

When I came home

No big party
When I came home

Nobody said

How do you feel

When I came home
No lottery

When I came home

No barbecues

When I came home
Nobody said

We need you

When I came home

When I came home
