Lyrics
:

Born of nineteen fifty nine 
That'll be the day rock'n'roll died 
Far away on a dark, stormy night 
America became fifty states
The sixties opened the pearly gates 
A hard rain fell and the times forever changed 
And all eyes fell on a motorcade
In Texas state a crime unveiled
Norma Jean she waits where she�s killed

And sixty eight rang like a ricochet 
The world arose to a nightmare day 
People found their voice and a world to change 

And one small step for man, 
One giant leap for mankind 
How I wish we could walk that way tonight 
On a Woodstock field twenty four lies
The music as a baby cries
The sound of generations collide 

Take me home
To the place where I belong
To the place where I come from
Won�t you please take me home

And the seventies king of rock'n'roll 
In Gracelands lost his throne 
They say he�ll make a comeback tomorrow 
No Elvis, Beatles or the Rolling Stones 
We tried to exorsise their ghosts
Formed a band we could not play a note
And the tragedies behind the dramas 
Belie the truth and the honesty 
I have seen the dirt and the glory

Take me home
To the place where I belong
To the place where I come from
Won�t you please take me home

And I�ve still got lots of freedom
And I�ve raised the flag for my kingdom
And at night I close my eyes 
And dream the dream of dreams

Take me home

Take me home
To the place where I belong
To the place where I come from
Won�t you please take me home

Take me home
To the place where I belong
To the place where I come from
Won�t you please take me home

Take me home
To the place where I belong
To the place where I come from
Won�t you please take me home
