These stairs lead to the backdoor
The one I'd opened way back then
And entered thru a million times
To find my dearest friends
Waiting in their rooms just laughing
Screaming, "Welcome, come on in,"
The night is just beginning,
But the party never ends

As for now, I am so proud, to say that I will always love this old house

Well it feels so good to come home
Where the faces are the same
Just watch the train pass by, down on Shanty Lane

Take the hallway to the front porch
Where we sat and smoked cigars
And we would talk about our women
Then we'd stair up at the stars
We would laugh at all the crazy things
That drove us all insane
Then we'd share ourselves in secret
And then we'd call them out by name



The pictures that were hanging on the wall
Reminded us of where we'd been last fall
