"Home Is Where The Heart Is" as written by and John Charles Wiltshire Butler....
Hard working people from another land
Looking for a little more
Coming to this country for a helping hand
You know they sail their ships upon these shores
And they are looking for a freedom
That most of us don't appreciate
But you know man we can't let them in
Cos the governments full of racial hate

And they got the nerve to say
They be takin our culture away
Even though our ancestors tried to do the same to the Aborigine
Seems strange to me man strange to me
Don't it seem strange to you
That a country founded on immigration
Is so damned racist too

And I say home
Home is where your heart is
yeah home

Then they got the nerve to say
They be takin our jobs away
Even though half the jobs that we're working for
Are owned from overseas
And other half of the companies
Yes yes that they say we rightly own
They operate on aisle three third world
That's right yeah, the sweatshop zone

And I say I don't know what's going on
Don't know what the hell to say
The government decides on letting refugees in
And they get here yes they are detained

And I don't know what's going on
Don't know the reason why
We live in an educated so called democracy
Where everybody decides to believe in lies
Believe in lies

Home is where the heart is
Yeah home

    General CommentI actually never heard this song before, but i found it in his archives. From what i read, it has so much meaning, and from what i know, it has to be great if its a JBT song.

    General CommentI believe wherever you are wherever your friends are and the people you love are is your home. this country is supposed to be free and whoever want to come and be apart of it is more than welcome. we are all one. love one another and this world would be a better place. and of course we all are different but we all want to be in a world full of peace and rid of the hate.
