Oh! you Railway station,
Oh! you Pullman train!
Here's my reservation,
For my destination,
Far beyond the Western Plain.
To see my Home in Pasadena,
Home where grass is greener,
Where honey bees hum melodies,
And orange trees scent the breeze.
I'm gonna be a Home Sweet Homer,
There I'll settle down,
Beneath the palms in someones arms,
In Pasadena Town.
Listen to Jazz Salvation Company with Dave Frey on banjo perform "Home In Pasadena" (mp3)
