ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Homecoming © 2008-2012 Steve Boothby. This song is about a man's wife, who passes on. The husband, who spent Maine summers with her, is left to pick up the pieces and emotions of his life, with a Kennebunk homecoming celebration, this time, all alone.

Lyrics:

Got this shed of rusty tools
Bygone memories, sold to fools
Unlisted, off the beaten track,
Matchbook and sticks,
They’ll never take me back
Private shadows under Kodak sun,
Who’s counting now,
Not a hundred and one

HOMECOMING
FOR TIRED MAN
CHOIRS ARE SWAYING,
EAST IN THE LAND
THERE’S A HOMECOMING,
MY LATELY MY WIFE
NIGHT OWL’S STIRRING,
UNDER WANING MOONLIGHT

Climb the blues scales,
This old guitar,
Tourists return, quiet on sandbar
Time slows, clocks pretend
Hours beg days,
May life never end

HOMECOMING
FOR MONTHS I WAS GONE
THIS MOMENT AT LAST,
NOW LOST IN THE SUN
THERE’S A HOMECOMING
BUT MY LADY PASSED ON
HER CANDLE DIMMED,
SO I THINK I’LL MOVE ON

Down at the Kennebunk morning catch,
Motors wine, dinghies float and stretch
Witness a swarm, Down East sky,
Canadian geese why they always cry
Oh yeah this is my life now,
Oh yeah this is my life now

They said, dark veneer on the outside
They saw, lonely desperado,
They knew, out of sight,
Out of mind

HOMECOMING,
FOR TIRED MAN
CHOIRS ARE PRAYING
EAST IN THE LAND
THERE’S A HOMECOMING
BROUGHT YOUR FAVORITE CASHMERE
NIGHT OWLS STIRRING,
HOW I WISH YOU COULD HEAR

I’M A MAN RUNNING,
FROM DAYS LONG GONE
LIVES I LOST,
IN THE HEAT OF THE SUN
THERE’S A HOMECOMING,
FOR LATELY WIFE
OCEANS ARE FAR,
LOVE IS CLEAR, LOVE IS WIDE

THERE’S A PLAYER STRUMMING,
FOR TIRED MAN,
COUPLES ARE JIGGING,
HEART OVER HAND
THERES A HOMECOMING
MY LATELY MY WIFE,
ATLANTIC BREEZE
UNDER WANING MOONLIGHT
