Song Description

Written about the tragedy in the early history of this very famous home of Frank Lloyd Wright.

Story Behind the Song

I had the opportunity to read Loving Frank by Nancy Horan this summer and I started to wonder what happened to Memeh Cheney-then I found out the truly horrible details.

Lyrics


Hello and welcome, you're here for the tour
Of the home of our gifted, beloved
It's been here 100 years, it'll be here for more
You can only see it on this guided tour
And we won't talk much about what happened here.

It's built horizontially into the land
Built it himself and designed it by hand
It's been here 100 years, it'll be here for more
He chose it all from ceiling to floor
But we won't talk much about what happened here.

Didn't deserve it though some say she did.
Left a husband and children to move in with him.
They hid out in Europe for almost a year
And then they returned.

It's a home and a studio
Workshop sanctuary
Home of our gifted, beloved
It's been here 100 years, it'll be here for more
You can only see it on this guided tour
No, we won't talk much about what happened here.

Late summer evening
One final meal.
Ax falls, doors are bolted
And the fire, the fire burns on.

He was in Chicago
Doing business as usual
We don't talk much about it here.
