HOMELAND (I WANT MY COUNTRY BACK)
Copyright © 2003 Greg Brown and Hacklebarney Music
I want my country back and a good dream to stand up for.
Got my hand over my heart, but I don't feel at home here anymore
Big, big flag above the big, big mall, and the shake rattle and roll to the core.
Things sprawl after they fall, and I don't feel at home here anymore.
Homeland of Sojourner Truth and Chief Joseph before
Many quiet words of wisdom drowned out by TV and I don't feel at home here anymore.
Blind engineer, war train on the track, many, many a heart is sore.
We want our country back. We want to feel at home here once more.
I want my country back.
[From "The Best of Live from Studio One" (KUNI), 2003.]
