"The Home Front" as written by and Shonna Tucker John Neff....
The hours creep across the face
As she paces across the floor
She can't even get to sleep since Tony went to war
She feels bitch-slapped and abandoned
By a world she thought she knew
Cold beyond comprehension as their little girl turns two

Now they're saying on the flat screen
They ain't found a reason yet
We're all bogged down in a quagmire
And there ain't no end to it
No Nine Eleven or Uranium to pin the bullshit on
She's left standing on the home front
The two of them alone

    General CommentNot much hidden, it is Patterson's way of telling what a woman told him on tour. At least I think it was on tour.

    I really like this song. It has such a sweet melody and suitable lyrics. Makes me think of a sunny morning after no sleep, and this woman is sitting with tears in her eyes, watching her sleeping children.
