Ricky Come Home

 
Andrew Heintzman / Fried Up Fred and Co. Lyrics
One Week Soundtrack Movie, 2008
CD  ·  DVD  ·  Sheet music

Ricky Come Home You joined the army 18 years ago,
You've been to Bosnia, Croatia, and Kosovo.
And other places, I'd sooner not go,
But so far you'd always come home.

Your family by now your not to ask why
They all acted brave as you kissed them goodbye
And they waved as the plane disappeared in the sky
And said 'come home, Ricky, come home"

"Ricky come home the fall has arrived
The leaves will be turning,
It's getting colder outside,
The table of life will be set one more time,
So come home, Ricky come home"

This wasn't your first time,
You've been here before.
You were one of the few,
Who had come back for more.
You knew whatever they call
This at home, is war
And you knew what was in store.

You were caught in an ambush
On a Kandahar road.
They came out of the blue,
And before you could know it,
It was raining hot metal,
And things that explode,
And this time there was no going home.

"Ricky come home, the fall has arrived
The leaves will be turning,
It's getting colder outside.
The table of life will be set one more time,
So come home, Ricky come home"

On the bridges they stood,
And watched you go by.
A Canadian flag was waving nearby,
And more than a few had a tear in their eye,
As they watched you going home.

They flew your body, back to St. Johns
Back to where you began,
Back to where you belong.
And the weary heart broke ,
When they played that last song,
You were home, Ricky, you were home.

"Ricky come home, the fall has arrived.
The leaves will be turning,
It's getting colder outside,
The table of life, will be set one more time,
So come home, Ricky come home"

The newspapers carried a story or two,
A word from your brother, a picture of you.
Oh, but life was so busy and there's so much to do,
We moved on, yes we moved on.

In the corridors of power,
They were looking for blame.
But that wasn't your star,
No it wasn't your game.
You'd given your life, for a world gone insane,
And traded blood for a home.

"Ricky come home the fall has arrived
The leaves will be turning
It's getting colder outside
The table of life will be set one more time,
So come home, Ricky come home"

"Ricky come home the fall has arrived
The leaves will be turning
It's getting colder outside
The table of life will be set one more time,
So come home, Ricky come home"

The table of life will be set one more time,
So come home, Ricky come home.
