Song Description

Our Rambling Hero comes to discover he's finally found his true home (for a while at least), having been charmed by the allure of New York City and of a woman who lives there...

Story Behind the Song

I was on the verge of moving to New York to work, write, record...and to be closer to a woman who lived there. Drippingly romantic.

Lyrics

Romeo?s Home At Last

coming down on the east side of Broadway
the cars and the lights flashing by
it?s Romeo, and he?s struttin? high
take it casual there, City Boy
it?s a star in the eye of the Rag Man
who?s found his piece of gold in the dirt
now Romeo, he?s got the word
beneath the streets there hides the land
and as the city turns to sand?

he feels like he?s been there forever
in the land where they?re living so fast
it seems like he?s been there forever
Romeo?s home at last

?this town it laughs and cries at the same time
and there?s winners being brought to their knees
by beggars in beat dungarees
who ain?t ever seen the north side of 8th Street?
Romeo?s off on some kind of romance
and he?s dancing like a fool in the rain
and he?s up on his feet once again
gone on an uptown tunnel ride
with half a million pressed beside

he feels like he?s been there forever
in the land where they?re living so fast
yes it seems like he?s been there forever
Romeo?s home at last
