Subject: Lyr Add: Home on the Front Range
After 30 years, Tim and NC Weil have moved backed to Colorado and added a 3rd verse to this tune (originally penned in 1980). Hope you enjoy it.

HOME ON THE FRONT RANGE (c)
--------------------------
Oh give me a home
In the disarmament zone
Where the Breeder Reactors don't prey
Where seldom you see
Radio-activity
And the Ozone stays intact all day

CHORUS
------
Home, safe from the Bomb
A hearth that always stays warm
With some person you're lovin'
And no microwave oven
Singing Tunes to move you along

Oh give me some space
Free of nuclear waste
And the fallout that comes from the storm
Where working makes sense
You pay low-budget rents
And the neighbors still party 'til dawn

CHORUS

New Verse (2010)

Crossed the country by car
With a Martin Guitar
To make the Front Range our new home
And now that we're settled
Ma and Pa Kettle
Can watch where the buffalo roam
