Steve's homage to upstate New York...


She ran to the canyon, met a man
And the old home is falling down
I ran to California, thought I’d warn you
The old home is falling down
I slapped some paint on the siding, that ain’t hiding
The old home is falling down
Ran an ad tried to find a tenant
To mow the lawn and to pay the rent
But it ain’t easy in this town
And the old home is falling down
Nothin’ but weeds in the garden
The oak tree fell in the yard
And another winter is comin’ round
And the old home is falling down
And I couldn’t bear to sell it
Momma I don’t know how else to tell it
It broke my heart to let you down
And the old home is falling down
