HOME ON THE FRONT RANGE (circa 1980)
------------------------------------

Oh give me a home
In a disarmament zone
Where the breeder reactors won't prey
Where seldom you'll see
Rad-io-act-ivity
And the ozone stays intact
All Day.

CHORUS
Home
Safe from the bomb
A hearth
That always stays warm
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 with the storm
Where working makes sense
You pay low budget rents
And the neighbors still party
'Til dawn

CHORUS
[Insert your verse here]

voyager
BTW - My mudcat handle was derived from our '95 Plymouth Voyager
which was stolen 2 weeks ago. I may have to reintroduce myself
to this cyberfolk community as CARAVAN since we bought a new van.

Here's a verse (or chorus) that I composed when I was a teen ager, during WWII when almost anything that tasted good was rationed.
(note) "stove" is yankee for gas cooker.

Home, Home on the stove
With the spinnach,. the carrots and groves,
where seldom is seen
Roast Beef, so lean,
And the gas isn't turned on all day

Jody

By the way, Home on the range is a terrific song, look past the first verse, subsequent ones are very poetic indeed.

After writing this song (30 years back) I always wanted to add a 3rd verse. When we moved back to Colorado in 2010, the Muse finally lent me a hand -

Crossed the country by car
With a Martin guitar
To make the Front Range our new home
And now we are settled
Like Ma and Pa Kettle
Here where the buffalo roam
